UFC 129 pre-fight press conference open to the public on April 27 in Toronto

via <a href=""></a>

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) presents UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" live from the Rogers Centre on April 30 in Ontario, Toronto, Canada.

Prior to the pay-per-view televised event, the promotion will be holding a special pre-fight press conference at the nearby Heritage Court from the Direct Energy Centre on April 27 in Toronto beginning at 1 p.m. ET (doors open at noon).

The event will be free to attend and open to the public. And with 55,000 tickets sold for UFC 129, it would probably be a good idea to get there nice and early if you want to get within earshot of the stage.

In fact, you should probably leave now just to be on the safe side.

UFC 129 is set to feature a main event between Canada's own Georges St. Pierre, defending his welterweight title against fresh challenger -- and former Elite XC and Strikeforce champion -- Jake Shields.

The event will also include the final appearance of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, defying the odds once again to take on Karate master Lyoto Machida.

Remember that will provide LIVE blow-by-blow, round-by-round coverage of UFC 129, beginning with the pay-per-view telecast at 9 p.m. ET on April 30. In addition, we will deliver up-to-the-minute quick results of all the under card action much earlier on fight night.

As always, you can catch a live stream of the UFC 129 pre-fight press conference right here on beginning at 1 p.m. ET on April 27.
