“We’re excited to bring some of our top stars to Toronto for the UFC Fan Expo,” UFC President Dana White said. “This is going to be the biggest weekend not only in UFC history, but in the history of our sport. I’m looking forward to giving our fans once-in-a-lifetime access to our fighters at the Fan Expo.”

All the UFC® Fan Expo activities will be planned in conjunction with the sold out UFC® 129: ST-PIERRE vs. SHIELDS event, which takes place in front of 55,000 fans at Rogers Centre on Saturday, April 30. Headlined by a welterweight title bout between champion Georges St-Pierre of Montreal and challenger Jake Shields, UFC 129 also features Jose Aldo defending the featherweight crown against tough Ontarian Mark Hominick.
