The Ultimate Fighting Championship's long-anticipated Vancouver event today got a green light.

As expected, the Vancouver City Council today voted in favor of a two-year trial for mixed martial arts in the city.

UFC president Dana White has long hinted at the possibility of a show in Vancouver, and during this past weekend's UFC 107 event, said a June event would be likely if regulation was adopted.

The trial will make the commission boatloads of cash and MMA will be permanent.

It will be a huge event but will also be one of those sold out in 3 minute shows we seem to get in vancouver. Then we get to buy tix from all the ticket brokers and scalpers at a 500% markup.
Slim chance alot of people who want to go will get tickets....

Sweet, only a few hour drive.

Now if only I can somehow get past the border without being detained and refused entry again.

To be honest it's this attitude that makes the UFC know that it will be successful in Canada....even if the $ spent was $40 at a bar, or via PPV instead of at the venue it will be noticed, and they will return so long as they make the all mighty $!
