Today Dana White finally announced the date of the UFC’s first visit to Ontario, Canada – April 30th of next year for UFC 131.

The promotion had been waiting to confirm the event for some time after the sport was finally sanctioned in the region back in August.

Now White has promised that, “attendance records will be broken,” for the UFC as they unleash what’s guaranteed be a stacked card on the massive Rogers Centre arena in Toronto which currently holds a sporting event record of 54,088 fans.

Canadian fans will also be treated to a fan expo in the build-up to the event on April 29th and 30th which is also set to draw huge crowds to Toronto and offer a massive boost to the local economy.
