UFC 149 press conference full video announcing Calgary debut on July 21

UFC 149 press conference starts at the 9:00 mark.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hit Calgary, Alberta, Canada, today (March 21, 2012) to officially announce it will bring an event to the Scotiabank Saddledome on July 21. UFC President Dana White also confirmed the show will be headlined by Jose Aldo defending his featherweight championship against an opponent to be named later.

Also on the scene was Canadian Director of Operations Tom Wright, who broke plenty of news himself. He brought word that UFC 152 will be held in Toronto on Sept. 22 and UFC 154 will go down in Montreal on Nov. 17. That latter card may very well feature the return of superstar Georges St. Pierre. If he's healthy, of course.
