Ultimate Fighting Championship

Hot Date: UFC’s Knockout Spectacle

Head to the Rogers Centre for UFC 129

APRIL 30 Mixed martial arts has a strong following in Canada, so it’s no surprise that UFC 129 in Toronto is expected to be the largest event in the history of Ultimate Fighting Championship. The partisan crowd is sure to cheer as Montreal native and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre steps in the octagon for a marquee bout against Jake Shields. And before that, Ontario’s own Mark “The Machine” Hominick trades blows with Jose Aldo for the featherweight title. Rogers Centre, 6 p.m., $50 to $800; call 1-855-985-5000 to buy.
