Major Announcement Coming From UFC In Toronto

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is expected to make a big announcement this coming week. The promotion announced an upcoming press conference earlier today that will take place next Tuesday at Toronto’s Rogers Center. According to Sportsnet.ca, sources have revealed that an office will be opening in Canada and that Carl DeMarco, former WWE Canada president, will be placed in charge. Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta will be present at the press conference, which will also feature a question and answer segment for the media in attendance.

While the press conference will be held in Toronto, the promotion still does not have the right-of-way legally to hold an event there. The UFC has been rigorous in its efforts to gain sanctioning for the sport of mixed martial arts in Toronto, but thus far no changes have been made towards legalization in the Canadian province.

Heavy.com will bring you more information as it breaks, along with news from the press conference next Tuesday.
