    Dana White: UFC Coming to Canada in April

    Dana White: UFC Coming to Canada in April

    The UFC will, in fact, host its first show in Canada in April.

    UFC President Dana White made the announcement during Thursday's UFC 79 press conference in Las Vegas, and the news was relayed in a Sportsnet.ca report that was posted today.

    Although White gave no date for the event, he stated that he wants French-Canadian fighter Georges St. Pierre to be part of the fight card -- regardless of the outcome of his fight with Matt Hughes tomorrow. The two former UFC welterweight champions meet in UFC 79's main event for the interim UFC welterweight title. St. Pierre was a late replacement for current champ Matt Serra, who had to pull out of the bout with a herniated disc.

    One possible date for the event is April 19. A source close to the Bell Centre in Montreal recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the UFC has targeted the venue for that date.

    The UFC has never held an event in Canada, though not for a lack of trying. The UFC unofficially announced two previous Canadian events only to have to move the events to U.S. locations because of scheduling conflicts.

    In a recent blog posting, UFC middleweight Jason MacDonald also mentioned that he expects to be part of the fight card -- which will likely be UFC 83 or UFC 84.

    I told you guys! IT works out, hopefully Serra will be healthy so GSP and Serra can match up for the welterweight title.
