Tuesday was a rough one for UFC officials. Not only did they lose Mark Munoz to injury for the UFC on Fox 2 event next week, but they also had to reschedule their planned trip to Montreal.
UFC 145 had been slated for a March 24 return to the Bell Centre in Montreal, but the promotion has been having a difficult time nailing down a worthy main event.
Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press first reported the news via Twitter, saying, “UFC postpones March show in Montreal, citing scheduling complications and desire to deliver ‘championship card.’”
A UFC Canada spokesperson confirmed the postponement to MMAWeekly.com.
The promotion still plans to return to Montreal in 2012, but as of the time of publication did not have a new date nailed down.
Several fights had already been rumored for what was to be the UFC 145 fight card. Those bouts will now, according to UFC officials, be pushed back to the following pay-per-view event in Atlanta or positioned on other fight cards.
