UFC’s Toronto Debut Re-named UFC 129; Newark, New Jersey card now UFC 128

UFC president Dana White made a public relations stop in Toronto last week to announce his company’s first event in the city. He said UFC 131 would take place April 30 at the Rogers Centre. The plans are still the same, but the event has been re-named UFC 129.

UFC 127 is official for Feb. 27 in Sydney, Australia, so that leaves room for just one more numbered event in March. The UFC’s partners in Abu Dhabi had been pushing for a return trip to the Middle East, but those plans were scrapped. Now UFC 129 in New Jersey, will now be UFC 128 on March 19 at the Prudential Center.

The promotion is also expected to hold it’s first 2011 event on the Versus sports network on March 3, as well as UFC Fight Night 24 on March 26, a lead-in to the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
