UFC 115 will be held on June 12 at the 19,000-seat GM Place in Vancouver, Canada, the UFC today officially announced, less than one day after UFC President Dana White said the promotion had resolved ongoing issues with the city that nearly forced the event to be moved to Cincinnati.
“Our Canadian fans are among the most loyal and enthusiastic in the world, and we are thrilled to bring the UFC to Vancouver,” said White in a release. “We want to thank Mayor Gregor Robertson and our partners at Canucks Sports and Entertainment for helping to make UFC 115 become the first UFC event in British Columbia.”
“Vancouver fans will be thrilled that the UFC is coming here,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson. “We’ve worked hard to bring it to Vancouver and I want to thank UFC and Canucks Sports and Entertainment for making the event possible. Vancouver has some of the most passionate UFC fans in the world, and I have no doubt that General Motors Place will be packed on June 12th.”
