Ottawa Is Hosting A UFC Fight Night In June
The UFC is happy to have it’s first event of 2016 on Canadian soil and it will take place in Ottawa on June, 18th. UFC officials have confirmed this and Dana will announce this at the ‘Unstoppable” press event in Las Vegas before the UFC 196 weigh-ins. Tom Wright, who is the UFC vice-president of Canada, New Zealand and Australia made these following remarks:
“I’m excited to tell you that we’re going to be coming to the beautiful nation’s capital, one of my favourite cities in the country. We’ve always wanted to come to our nation’s capital and we know that Ontario is a strong market for us. Ottawa is a nice distance between Montreal and Toronto and Kingston, it’s a great sports town, and we can’t think of a better city to mark the 20th UFC event in Canada than our nation’s capital.”
It is uncertain who is going to be on the card, but I’m sure that many UFC fans in Canada are excited for this Fight Night to take place there.
