UFC NEWS – UFC Officials Cancel UFC 145 In Montreal Due To Lack Of Star Power Available

January 17, 2012 5:37 pm by Pedro Carrasco

UFC officials have officially cancelled their UFC 145 event set for Montreal this March. The shuffle leaves some fighters having to shift their schedules and wait for a new date for already booked bouts.

Che Mills vs. Rory MacDonald, Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub, Mark Bocek vs. Matt Wiman, Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin, Travis Browne vs. Chad Griggs, Mac Danzig vs. Efrain Escudero and Chris Clements vs. Keith Wisniewski where all expected to make an appearance, however due to the lack of a main event these fighters will now seek a home elsewhere.

With major headliners like Brock Lesnar and BJ Penn on hiatus and champions such as Georges St. Pierre, Junior Dos Santos and Anderson Silva on the mend from injury the UFC’s star power is surprisingly weak at the moment and they did not feel comfortable going on with the show as planned without a major headlining act.

When the seven-bouts already made official for the now cancelled event get rebooked we will post an update.
