Default UFC Not Returning To Montreal Until 2009; GSP vs. Penn Likely For Superbowl Weekend I

Chris Insinna

Unfortunately for our neighbors to the north, the UFC will be unable to make it back to the city of Montreal before 2009, according to Yahoo! Sports, who spoke with UFC president Dana White.

Additionally, the much-anticipated rematch between Georges St. Pierre and BJ Penn will take place during Super Bowl weekend on January 31st in Las Vegas, and St. Pierre’s welterweight title will be on the line in the five-round contest.

The report added that UFC 91 will take place as rumored in Portland, Oregon on November 15th, and that a lightweight meeting between Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson is confirmed for the evening.

The article concluded with White debunking rumors that Wanderlei Silva will be fighting at UFC 92 on December 27th, stating “He [Silva] might not be on that card, though. But I really don’t know for sure now. But I’m thinking he’s not going to be on that at this point.”

That's such bullsh*t. The UFC made the most money and sold out to more fans then any other event and they don't come back until 2009. This is the kind of stuff that makes me dislike Dana even more...Very bad strategies recently.

I thought Kenflo had already won his number 1 contender match.

i hear yah. ufc 78 was in nj not to far from me which was great.....even though the fight card wasnt the best, i think they still made decent money from the ticket sales. the ufc needs to make it to nyc and or the east coast more often. they used to have events in atlantic city nj, and mohican sun casino in conneticut, but they havent had one there in years. those areas on close to me and i would definetly go. ive been to 2 ufc's in vegas, 1 in california, and 1 in nj. it gets expensive when you have to travel that far to see a live event.
