The Ultimate Fighting Championship® continues to add firepower to its first-ever trip to Ontario, announcing today the UFC® Fan Expo will feature the largest collection of UFC® athletes to ever appear in Canada. The UFC® Fan Expo invades the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto on April 29 and 30.

The following fighters will participate in autograph sessions and a variety of other fan activities: newly-crowned UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell, UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie, former UFC two-division champion BJ Penn, UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Josh Koscheck, Ryan Bader, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Carwin, Matt Mitrione, Brendan Schaub, Jon Fitch, Miguel Angel Torres, Anthony Pettis, Clay Guida, Joe Lauzon, Cole Miller, Sam Stout, Carlos Condit and Jonathan Brookins.

“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. The event has already broken all UFC attendance and gate records, while also setting the highest gate mark for a single-day event in Rogers Centre history.
