"The fans are really fired up for this fight. Josh Koscheck’s mission is to take the world title from Georges St-Pierre in front of his hometown crowd in Montreal. With such high demand, we released additional tickets and expect Bell Centre to be electric on Dec. 11." ---Dana White, UFC President

UFC’s return to Canada seems to be a blockbuster hit. UFC officials announced today that additional tickets will be released for next month’s “UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck II” event in Montreal. This was due to the high demand of the fans.

The event, that’ll take place in Dec. 11 features a rematch between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and top contender Josh Koscheck. The fight will happen at Montreal’s Bell Centre and airs live on pay-per-view. It will mark UFC’s fourth-ever trip to Montreal and the second in this year.

The Bell Centre hosted two biggest crowds in UFC history with 21,451 attendees at “UFC 97: Redemption” in April 2009 and 21,390 fans attending “UFC 83: St-Pierre vs. Serra II” in April 2008.

“The fans are really fired up for this fight,” UFC president Dana White stated today. “Josh Koscheck’s mission is to take the world title from Georges St-Pierre in front of his hometown crowd in Montreal. With such high demand, we released additional tickets and expect Bell Centre to be electric on Dec. 11.”

"I would much rather take it from GSP because he's the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world right now, in my opinion. Koscheck is a phenomenal fighter, but right now it's a little more prestigious to beat GSP." ---Jake Shields

Controversial contender Jake Shields (26-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is planning to lose four pounds for his next UFC fight. He was forced to tone down into 14 pounds to make way for his fight with Martin Kampann on Saturday’s UFC 121.

“I’m certainly not happy for doing something so stupid,” Shields, who pulled off a split-decision victory, today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). “I embarrassed myself doing that, and I don’t plan on doing it again.”

UFC’s Dana White has something harsh to say.

“No matter how much weight he cut and whatever he did, that’s his fault,” White said. “That’s his stupidity. He’s been in the game for a long time, so I don’t like to use any of that stuff, but the reality is I do know what he did, and I know he won’t make those dumb mistakes next time.”
