UFC Not Returning To Montreal Until 2009; GSP vs. Penn Likely For Superbowl Weekend In Vegas

UFC President Dana WhiteUnfortunately for our neighbors to the north, the UFC will be unable to make it back to the city of Montreal before 2009, according to Yahoo! Sports, who spoke with UFC president Dana White.

Additionally, the much-anticipated rematch between Georges St. Pierre and BJ Penn will take place during Super Bowl weekend on January 31st in Las Vegas, and St. Pierre’s welterweight title will be on the line in the five-round contest.

The report added that UFC 91 will take place as rumored in Portland, Oregon on November 15th, and that a lightweight meeting between Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson is confirmed for the evening.

The article concluded with White debunking rumors that Wanderlei Silva will be fighting at UFC 92 on December 27th, stating “He [Silva] might not be on that card, though. But I really don’t know for sure now. But I’m thinking he’s not going to be on that at this point.”

The UFC’s next pay-per-view, “UFC 88: Breakthrough”, will emanate from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on September 6th and features Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans in a light-heavyweight main event.
