Update: Brock Lesnar is out of the main event due to reoccurring stomach issues
The UFC is getting ready to return to Vancouver this summer. This will no doubt rile the feathers of many West End and Gastown residents who somehow feel they’re far superior to the millions around the world that love this sport.
The date is set for June 11, 2011. The headliner will be Block Lesnar vs. Junior Dos Santos. We will also see the return of Heavyweight Shane Carwin as he will take on Jon Olav Einemo.
UFC’s first foray into Vancouver was a resounding success and despite the lacklustre card on paper, the fights were actually pretty good. The Vancouver show was the fastest sellout in UFC history.
