UFC 165 headed to Air Canada Centre in T.O.


As it has seem to become somewhat of a standard tradition or annual date, the UFC is heading back to Toronto for the month of September with UFC 165.

No fights have been signed, announced or even rumoured as of yet, but there’s no doubt that the card will be riddled with Canadian fighters and will feature a very attractive main event worthy of a city as passionate about MMA as the Toronto.

FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight” confirmed on Tuesday that the event will be held at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on September 21st.

This will be the UFC‘s 4th event in Toronto and their 3rd event in Canada this year after holding events in both Montreal and Winnipeg.

Stay tuned for more information on potential matchups for this event!

  • Air Canada Centre is a great venue. Hope they put on an event the magnitude of UFC 129!!!

    • It does look like a great venue but with a maximum capacity of roughly 20k I think they won't make as big a deal as 129.
      I do have a feeling that if it is indeed the GSP/Hendricks fight, that they will stack the card, similar to UFC 158.

      • Well the difference is that UFC 129 was in Toronto's Rogers Centre which is a Baseball stadium that holds 50,000+.

        The Air Canada Centre is just a hockey/basketball venue with a max capacity of around 19-20. So it'll be a good show for sure, but not nearly as big.

  • Its most likely going to be GSP vs Hendricks main event.

    If not, somebody will need to put Johnny on suicide watch lol

  • I wonder how long till they go back to the Roger's Centre, that was a fun event.

    I hope this is the sign of a GSP/Hendricks bout but Dana did say at 158 that he wanted to bring GSP back to the US, he felt he had been in Canada too much and his next fight would be in Las Vegas.
    I don't know how Las Vegas fans feel but I think I like keeping him in Canada, it always makes the event feel huge with his superstar presence up there.

    • For sure, but he's got the presence all over the world. It's just a little stronger north of the border.

      Fight fans wanna see good fights with the best fighters regardless of where they're from. Anderson Silva is the perfect example.
