Fans in Toronto have come to expect at least one visit from the UFC fairy every year and, as desired, will get their wish in the coming months when the world’s foremost MMA organization rolls through town for UFC 165. The event is scheduled to take place on September 21 at the Air Canada Centre.
UFC Tonight was first to report the card. No bouts have been attached to the lineup thus far.
The event marks the second straight time the UFC has stopped in Toronto for a September show. Last year’s offering at UFC 152 featured light heavyweight champ Jon Jones’ successful defense of the belt against Vitor Belfort in the headlining slot. The first flyweight title in UFC history was also awarded as a result of Demetrious Johnson narrowly outpointing the always-game Joseph Benavidez.
