Executive Director Pat Reid sent a congratulatory e-mail to the Calgary Combative Sports Commission two weeks prior to the public announcement that Calgary had been chosen by the UFC for a UFC event in Alberta in 2012.
"We hosted the UFC's WEC division a little over a year ago," said Reid, "this make Alberta the only province in Canada to have hosted both the WEC and UFC. I'm sure the Calgary Commission will do a wonderful job hosting the UFC in July, " said Reid. "This is terrific news for the sport of MMA in Alberta."
