UFC 149: Dana White 'excited' for the 'crazy' event in Calgary (Video)

"I was in Calgary, 1300 people showed up for the press conference. They were cheering like there was a fight going on. I'm so excited for this Calgary event. I know this thing's gonna be crazy. I'm already thinking we're gonna move the stage back for the weigh ins, because if 1300 people showed up for the press conference, imagine how many people are going to show up for the weigh ins. It's probably gonna be crazy up there."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hit Calgary, Alberta, Canada, late last week to officially announce it will bring an event to the Scotiabank Saddledome on July 21, 2012. UFC President Dana White (via Bobby Cavian), who is "excited" for the projected turnout at UFC 149 based on the sheer number of fans who stormed the presser, also confirmed the show will be headlined by Jose Aldo defending his featherweight championship against an opponent to be named later. Let's hear from our Canadian Maniacs ... what kind of controlled chaos are you expecting when the UFC hits Calgary this summer?
