UFC 83 Road Trip!

This is one of many things I had intended to post a while ago, but never got around to it. I am a BIG fan of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and have always said that if they ever came to Canada that I would be all over it. Well on February 3rd, tickets went on sale for the first ever UFC event in Canada and we managed to snag 6 decent tickets for what could be one of the best UFC events of all time!

From the official UFC 83 site

"UFC comes to Canada for the first time ever on Saturday, April 19th! One year ago, Matt "The Terror" Serra shocked the world by defeating Georges "Rush" St-Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Championship. Now, after defeating Matt Hughes in December, St-Pierre enters the Octagon as the Interim Welterweight Champion to face the man who took his title - this time, in his home province of Quebec. Can Serra beat St-Pierre for a second time? The undisputed king of the 170-pound weight class will be determined at UFC 83: SERRA VS. ST-PIERRE 2- Saturday, April 19, live on Pay-Per-View from Montreal, Quebec "

Since there will be 6 of us going , we decided to make it a true guys weekend and will be traveling up together and spending the weekend. We have a hotel next to the Bell Center and plan to go to the fight, eat, drink and enjoy all the city has to offer. Should be a blast!
