Props: MMAWeekly


"We're going to go up to Canada, and we're hoping to do that in the next few months. We're looking at a few different cities and it's really going to depend on dates and venues, and things like that. Again, we have television concerns and so there's a lot of elements that go into it. Right now I don't have a city specifically I can announce, but I can tell you we're looking at two or three."

WEC General Manager Reed Harris confirms the good news for Canadian fight fans that the UFC sister-promotion will bring its unique brand of cagefighting across the border in the next few months.The promotion recently secured an exclusive Canadian multi-platform partnership agreement with The Score to bring seven live WEC fights, online content and exclusive features to Canadian audiences beginning this year. Are they now ready for live events -- or is MMA over-saturating itself by spreading too fast, too soon?
