MMA is not legal in Ontario, Canada and that's a shame. A really big missed opportunity shame:
Sources from the Montreal Bell Centre have indicated that over three quarters of the 21,000 fans in attendance for UFC 83 purchased their tickets through the UFC Fight Club. In fact, half of the tickets were sold to individuals with postal codes in the Greater Toronto Area. All of which contributed to the biggest live gate in Canadian combat sports history, $5.1 million.
