The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be returning to Toronto before the end of the year.
The world’s most popular mixed martial arts promotion announced that the UFC 231 pay-per-view event will be held at the newly-renamed Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Centre) on Dec. 8.
No bouts were announced, although many Canadian fans have already begun clamouring for Montreal-born Georges St-Pierre to headline the card.
The UFC last came to Toronto for UFC 206 in December 2016.
The promotion’s very first appearance in the city was back in 2011 — UFC 129, which was marked by St-Pierre successfully defending his welterweight title. It remains the organization’s highest-attended event ever in North America.
