UFC 165 heads to Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Sept. 21
The UFC will return to Toronto in September for a pay-per-view that will be UFC 165. UFC officials on Tuesday made the announcement on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight." UFC 165 will take place Sept. 21 at Air Canada Centre. No main event or other fights were announced for the card. The show will be the UFC's fourth in the Ontario city, which is the largest in Canada. Most recently, UFC 152 took place at Air Canada Centre on Sept. 22, 2012 – so UFC 165 will return there exactly a year later to the weekend.

Pat Healy releases statement admitting positive test for marijuana post-UFC 159
UFC lightweight Pat Healy (30-16 MMA, 1-0 UFC) today issued a statement to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) in which he apologized for testing positive for marijuana following an upset win over Jim Miller (22-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC) at UFC 159. The UFC declined to comment on the matter, and the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, which oversaw the event, does not release the names of those that test positive for banned substances following an event. But a Healy representative told MMAjunkie.com that the fighter was suspended for 90 days by the commission and his win will be overturned to a no contest. In his statement, Healy took fully responsibility for the positive test.
