UFC Announces Three Events in Canada for 2012, Jose Aldo to Headline Calgary Card

Jose Aldo

The UFC announced that it will be visiting Canada three times in 2012 today. The UFC announced UFC 149, which will take place July 21 in Calgary, UFC 152 for September 22, and UFC 154 for Montreal on November 17.

UFC 149 will likely be headlined by UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo facing the winner of Dustin Poirier vs. Chan Sung Jung at UFC on FUEL 3. UFC-veteran Jason MacDonald announced the Calgary card for the UFC, and added that he would like to fight on the card and then retire.

UFC 152 and UFC 154 have not yet been assigned main events. UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre announced the UFC 154 Montreal card but did not say whether he would be on the card. The November card would match the optimistic timeline for St-Pierre but the champion insisted he is only focusing on fighting in 2012 regardless of where the event takes place.
