This week the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced two locations that will hold fights in the coming year. With a current company objective to expand the organization internationally, both of these events will take place outside of US borders.
First, UFC 131 will be hosted in Toronto, Canada on April 30. Ontario recently legalized MMA this past August and this will be the first time the organization holds an event in the area. To go along with the fights held on Saturday, a two day fan expo will occur on April 29 and 30. With the UFC set to hold UFC 124 in Canada this weekend, the Toronto debut will be the sixth time the organization travels to “hockey country”.
