Now it's official. Reigning UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre will defend his title against Jake Shields in the main event of UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Both men are currently on an incredible unbeaten streak, defeating some of the top opponents in the game. It will be Georges St. Pierre's sixth title defense, after he defeated Josh Koscheck last December at UFC 124.
Here's more of what UFC Director of Canadian operations Tom Wright said at the online this week's "UFC Ultimate Insider" show at UFC.com:
"We’ve talked about the 30,000 to 40,000 range (at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada). Whatever it is, we’re going to set a record here in terms of turnstile attendance. I can tell you it will be north of 25,000 and probably south of 40,000."
