Report: UFC’s Return to Montreal Likely Delayed, Jones-Gustafsson II Location Still Undetermined
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship may go through 2014 without holding an event in Montreal, Quebec.
The promotion had plans to hold a pay-per-view event in the city on December 6th, but following UFC Fight Night 43, Tom Wright relayed that probably won’t be the case.
According to a report from MMA Fighting.com, the head of UFC operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, said the Montreal card will “most likely” get pushed to March, 2015. No reason for the decision was reportedly disclosed.
The last event to take place in Montreal was UFC 158, which was held in March, 2013.
In addition, Wright confirmed that the UFC has yet to determine where Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson II will take place. The bout could be hosted by Toronto on September 27th.
