UFC returning to Montreal

Wasn't sure where this went:

A rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will headline a May 1 UFC event in Montreal, Canada, UFC President Dana White confirmed with Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel on Wednesday.
Finally, another chance to return to Montreal! I loved the city the last time I went for that snoozer between Silva and Leites, although the same night Montreal had lost Game 2 against Boston or something like that, so everyone was in a bad mood.

should have waited for gsp's fight to bring it back to montreal, unless there's a rule saying he can't fight out of his own city x number of times.

Why ? It was sold out the last time without GSP, so they don't need GSP to fill the Bell Centre.

Maybe an event with GSP could fill the Olympic Stadium... How awesome would that be. Altough the view might end up sucking.

Oh i'm not saying they need GSP, it's just sick when he fights here. I don't think UFC would work at such a big venue place like le stade. What's the biggest place a ufc event has been held at?

Well the first event in Montreal, GSP won his undisputed title and the next game, the Canadiens beat Boston 5-0 in game 7

Yes, but the night of the event they lost to Boston, I know cause I had seats in front of the lodges, and they were showing the game in the lodges during the event hehehe

No GSP but a great Main Event nonetheless! Thanks Dana!
