UFC Returning to Toronto for UFC 140 in December

(Prepare to mobilize, Potato Nation North…)

Following the UFC’s record-shattering first visit to Toronto in April, the promotion plans on heading back to Canada’s largest city by the year’s end. According to an ESPN report, UFC 140 will take place at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on December 10th. No fights have been announced for the card yet, and since Georges St. Pierre is already booked to fight Nick Diaz on October 29th, the country’s biggest star almost certainly won’t be showing up for an encore performance.

That should help explain why the event is somewhat scaled down compared to UFC 129, which hosted over 55,000 fans at Toronto’s Rogers Centre. The capacity of the Air Canada Centre is about 20,000, meaning that a sellout would put the attendance on par with the UFC’s hugely successful events at Montreal’s Bell Centre — still nothing to sneeze at.

Based on the schedules of the UFC’s current champions, it seems most likely that UFC 140 will be headlined by a middleweight title fight, or possibly a light-heavyweight title fight if the winner of Jon Jones vs. Quinton Jackson agrees to a two-and-a-half month turnaround.

CP, I fully expect another bar reserved for the Potato Nation! I'll click on your sponsor ads every day until it happens. Nothing like a bunch of nerds, free booze, and hot waitresses fleeing my every glance.
