Dana White Describes Toronto, Ontario as “Strongest Market on the Planet”

UFC President, Dana White has confirmed the promotions intentions to switch it’s attention from it’s regular home of Las Vegas, Nevada to Toronto, Ontario, Canada after labelling the city the fight capital of the world and the strongest market on the planet.

White, speaking at yesterday’s press conference, said:

“We felt that this was the right move our second time back here. We’ll do another massive fight here when we have the right fight. Vegas has always been known as the fight capital of the world, well in our sport, Toronto is becoming well known for that. So, yes, we’ll do another major fight (in Toronto) and do it like we did last time. This is without a doubt the strongest market on the planet.”

The last time the promotion visited Toronto was in April when they set a new attendance record of just over 55,000 people at the Rogers Center. This time around they will head to the Air Canada Center which holds 20,000.
