MONTREAL -- The UFC has postponed its March show in Montreal.

UFC 145 was scheduled for March 24 at the Bell Centre. But the UFC scrapped it for now, citing scheduling complications and a desire to deliver a "championship card."

UFC director of Canadian operations Tom Wright says he expects Montreal to stage a show later this year.

Most of the fights announced for the March show will be shifted to a card set for April in Atlanta.

Yeah, Idk what fights were on this card, but there is no main event or even really co-main event worthy.

Gets me kind of excited to think they moved it to deliver a "championship card"... I smell The Reem vs Cigano for this one!

Welterweight bout: Canada Rory MacDonald vs. England Che Mills
Heavyweight bout: United States Travis Browne vs. United States Chad Griggs
Lightweight bout: Canada Mark Bocek vs. United States Matt Wiman
Featherweight bout: Canada Mark Hominick vs. United States Eddie Yagin

Lightweight bout: United States Mac Danzig vs. Mexico Efrain Escudero
Lightweight bout: Canada John Makdessi vs. Nigeria Anthony Njokuani

a bunch of solid fights, but no co-main worthy fight

Yeah they would have had to add a main event to this card in about 2 months, which idk how long those guys need for a training camp.

But adding some of these fights to the other cards will strengthen those cards.
