UFC Confirms Five Events In Canada This Year

A trio of pay-per-views are headed to Canada this year, as the UFC made the announcement during a special press conference on Wednesday.

A total of five events will be held in the country, starting April 16 with The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale from Quebec City.

On June 14, Rogers Arena in Vancouver will host UFC 174, while UFC 178 goes down September 27 from Toronto and the Air Canada Centre.

A Fight Night card is planned for October 4 from Halifax Metro Centre, while UFC 181 takes place December 6 from Montreal’s Bell Centre.

UFC executive Tom Wright and fighters Patrick Cote, Sarah Kaufman, T.J. Grant and Sam Stout were among those on hand for the announcement.

In addition to setting the fight card dates, two bouts were made official for the TUF Nations Finale, as coaches Cote and Kyle Noke meet, along with lightweights Stout and K.J. Noons.
