The UFC is heading to Edmonton
It was announced Thursday UFC 216 will be held at Edmonton’s Rogers Place on Saturday, Sept. 9, No bouts have yet been announced for the card.
This will be the 24th UFC card in Canada, dating back to the memorable debut at UFC 83 in Montreal in 2008, in which welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre defeated Matt Serra to regain the welterweight title. Edmonton will become the 10th Canadian city to host a UFC card.
While this marks the first UFC event in Edmonton, the city did host a WEC 49 in June 2010 when the company was owned by then-UFC owner Zuffa.
