UFC president Dana White confirmed to The Canadian Press that after some drama, UFC 115 will in fact take place on June 12th at the GM Place in Vancouver. Vancouver’s city council had previously approved a two-year pilot program to regulate MMA events. However, the implementation of the program was delayed by requirements added afterward by officials that included a $12 million event bond required of promoters.
Quick Hit: Yeah, that’s what I thought. I know Dana was smiling as he was talking to the Canadian Press. No freaking way Vancouver passes up an opportunity to host a UFC event. Especially after every other Canadian city sells out their respective arenas. Vancouver officials get a big “Child Please!” I guess that kills my Rich Franklin theory. Or does it?
