UFC has done shows in Canada before. In Montreal the show sold out in mere minutes as home Georges St. Pierre was the main attraction. They’ll be in Montreal again. If memory serves me correctly a few years ago Bodog did an event at the Pacific Coliseum that sold out.
This may all change as UFC host Joe Rogan (who will be bringing his comedy act to the River Rock) will attempt to grab Richmond city hall’s attention. If Richmond says no, he’ll go to Coquitlam.
The customers want it, The River Rock wants it, GM Place officials want it. WTF! Come on Gregor time to give the people what they want. If we can have boxing bouts here I’m sure we can have UFC here. Set up an BC Athletics commission to handle this.
Lets hope we can bring UFC to Vancouver soon! This political bullshit in our city is too much, besides we sure can use additional money in our coffers.
