The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to be spending a lot of time in Canada before 2014 is up, as the promotion announced today it will hold five events in the northern nation.
As expected, Quebec City’s Le Colisee Pepsi will host the TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia Finale, April 16th. The card will not only feature the finals for the reality show, but a welterweight tilt between opposing coaches Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke.
In addition, the UFC announced that Sam Stout will battle lightweight KJ Noons at the event, and that bantamweight Mitch Gagnon will face Tim Gorman.
On June 14th, the promotion will return to Vancouver, British Columbia for UFC 174. The event will be hosted by the city’s Rogers Arena.
Then, on September 27th, Toronto’s Air Canada Centre will host UFC 178. One week later on October 4th, the UFC will head to Halifax for the first time. The Nova Scotia city’s Halifax Metro Centre will host the event, which will be a UFC Fight Night.
The fifth and final Canadian event will take place at Montreal’s Bell Centre on December 6th.
No details regarding main events or additional bouts for the upcoming events were announced.
