You obviously don't understand MMA fans in Canada. The UFC is popular here. It may be GSP's hometown, but the UFC brand is much bigger than GSP. There are some big stars fighting on that card and that is more than enough to sellout the Bell Centre again.

As far as the Quebec comission goes, they are just playing dirty with the UFC. They have held many MMA events in that province under the Unifed Rules of MMA. Now all of a sudden they want to change the rules? They want money or some kickback, something to sweeten the pot a bit. I hope the UFC can still have this event go forward, then never return to the province of Quebec again!
Yes I think you are right. I think the strikebox event might have upset them but...I cant help thinking they are playing silly beggers because their top MMA fighter has...well...he's not it does no harm to say its not right to lable someone a cheat...

I've worked for big institutions...I honnestly wouldnt put it past them to be upset at the fact that Penn has accused GSP and that the commission are looking into it..and that there has been a policy change in the UFC because of it. So they are using the Strikebox disastor as an excuse to get whatever it is they want from the UFC

I dont mean to make it sound like a conspiracy...but...why else would they pretend they didnt know about GSP/Serra event
