    UFC loves to the play the game "How many Canadians can you squeeze onto a Montreal card", lol.

    ^ so true.

    While staying on topic I do see Sean Pierson losing to Rick Story any way Richard would like it to play out.

    I like Pierson's jab but there's no way he keeps it standing if Story wants it on the ground.

    I did a quick search on Dustin. He is undefeated at 9-0, most of his fights are with a promotion called X-1. He has 6 submissions, 2 TKO wins. Sounds like a decent prospect. His opponent is 12-3, and has 1 UFC fight. Given Kimura's impressive finishing rate vs Camus getting 5 of his wins by decision, I would be inclined to pick Kimura to win that one.

    UFC loves local talent in general. When your paying to fly out the fighter plus one or two cornermen, going local helps keep costs down.

    UFC 144 had 10 Japanese fighters for 12 fights.
    UFC 134 had 14 Brazilian fighters for 12 fights
    UFC on Fuel (Barao vs McDonald) has 7 UK fighters + 4 European fighters for 12 fights

    You may have also noticed that fighters who fight out of the same camp as one of the main event fighters often make up a big chunk of the fight card. When John Jones fights, you end up seeing Greg Jackson in the corner for about 1/3rd of the fights. When Cain Velasquez fights, you see plenty of AKA guys. That just cuts down on the number of corner men that the UFC needs to fly in.

    Sadly, I agree.

    Yeah, but it is cheaper to fly US/Canada than it is to fly within Canada.
    Silly UFC doesn't realize Air Canada's (almost) monopoly.

    Luckily over half of Canadian UFC fighters live in Montreal, lol.
