AP - The UFC has called off a planned January date in Montreal.

"We had a venue and everything set up for Canada and we had to cancel the Canada date," UFC president Dana White told reporters Thursday.

The proposed January show at the Bell Centre was supposed to be shown on HBO in the U.S. But when the HBO deal did not come through, the show was axed

Late spring or summer seems most likely. The main reason he's having trouble getting a date is the arena they want (Bell Centre) is almost fully booked until at least April due to hockey.
