When the UFC first held an event in Calgary, Alberta, it was regarded as one of the worst pay-per-views in company history. The fans were chanting “Refund!” as Renan Barao beat Urijah Faber to cap off a truly lackluster main card, and Dana White promised a better show the next time the Octagon appeared in the city.
Well it took six years to come back to Calgary, but it’s happening. Saturday, July 28th features a highly anticipated lightweight rematch between Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier as the UFC on FOX 30 main event. The co-main sees former featherweight champion Jose Aldo take on Jeremy Stephens, in what is Aldo’s first three-round bout since almost a decade. Ex-strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is also in a three-rounder, as she’s set to battle Tecia Torres.
