Odds Stacked Against UFC 97

As we had reported last week, UFC President Dana White is headed up to Montreal, Quebec, Canada to see if he can save UFC 97 in an emergency meeting with Quebec’s liquor and gaming board.

As it is currently constructed, the rules don’t allow for knees to the head, judo-style throws or elbows and you could see how that would affect a UFC event.

Strangely enough, Quebec’s liquor and gaming board, allowed UFC 83 to take place in Montreal but could possibly pass on UFC 97.

Even if an agreement is made, the word out of Canada is that it may not be able to begin until after April, which is when UFC 97 is scheduled to take place.
