I’m hoping that this is not true as I was really looking forward to heading out to Montreal for a great weekend. If this is true and the QAC is standing by it’s decision regarding the rules of mma in Quebec it could spell trouble for the sport in that province.

Can you imagine mma with a standing eight count or something along those lines? That would be terrible! I’m all for fighter safety but the sport has been proven very safe with the current unified rule system that is currently being employed in many different places around the world. Why change what seems to be working very well?

Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that on April 18 we’re sitting in Montreal watching some live UFC action!

    Just went to Sherdog.com and there is a story there that the Quebec comission and the UFC have reached an agreement and UFC 97 will go on as planned. They would not comment if there were any rule changes at all.

    Great news…Now time to make some plans to make it out there. Anyone else going out?

    I had read yesterday that Dana couldn’t make it to Montreal, and that Lorenzo was going instead, along with UFC (or Zuffa)’s VP of regulations or something.

    Not sending Dana probably saved this event, and MMA in Quebec in general. I’m sure his ‘my way or the highway’ attitude would have gotten backs up and not fostered the environment for an agreement.
