A trio of new host cities will get Ultimate Fighting Championship events later this year or in early 2010 if Dana White gets his way.

I'm praying for an NY show. I have faith that it will happen eventually. UFC 120 New Years weekend at the Garden. Epic..................

"The people up here tell me, 'If you go to Toronto, you could do 60,000 seats,'" White said. "People tell me crazy stuff about going to Toronto."


That would be the Rogers Centre where the Jays play. Tough but doable, especially if the cheap seats are $99.

Supposedly more people per capita in Toronto order UFC PPV than anywhere else.

Rogers Center is also a good fit because its been the host of 2 Wrestlemanias that held over 60,000 people.

Its "videoboad" formely "jumbotron" was also the largest in the world until recently when the Cowboys updated their stadium, so seeing the fights wouldn't be an issue regardless of where you're sitting either.

The only thing we need is our govenment to stop dragging their feet and to finally let this happen.

Bring the UFC to Toronto, it would be the biggest show in UFC history. Make Montreal shows look like a fight night.
