Canadian Press Confirms UFC 115 in Vancouver's GM Place, June 12th
According to the Canadian Press, the Ultimate Fighting Championships recently settled on a June 12th, 2010 date for their British Columbia debut and have officially determined that GM Place will host the event. Of course, this announcement comes hot on the heels of Vancouver City Council's December 2009 decision to sanction MMA in the Lower-Mainland on a two-year trial basis.
No fighters have been linked to the card at this time, but announcements in that regard can be expected in the coming weeks. There is also no word as yet on when tickets will be available, but it's safe to assume the venue will sell out almost instantly.
The card will be held a mere two weeks after UFC 114, which takes place on U.S. Memorial Day, May 29th. It will also occur just over a month after UFC 113, which is slated for May 1st and will mark the organization's third trip to Montreal. Late spring of this year offers a solid run of UFC shows for MMA fans, especially Canadians, capped off by an absolute dream come true for all those in attendance at GM Place on June, 12th.
