No Cain vs Junior in Toronto?

An MMA fan’s existence is made up of a constant tug of war between fight announcements and cancellations, dizzying excitement and crushing disappointment. The fight between Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez was never officially announced, and it’s not really being cancelled, but I still got all dizzy and crushed like a 16 year old girl hearing this:

“That fight will happen. I don’t know when and I don’t know where,” White said shortly after UFC 147 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. “It’s going to depend on Junior.

“They’re probably not going to fight in Toronto.”

White did not specify a reason why the fight, which was slated for UFC 152, will likely take place at another event.

After Cain’s hand was cleared many figured we were good to go, but now some mystery problem with Junior Dos Santos is mucking everything up. My bet: Junior has come down with a bad case of Nationalism, with symptoms including not wanting to fight outside his country. Which pisses me off, because I wanted him to fight in my country, specifically in Toronto so I could see it live. Makes you wish for the days when Dana ruled his roster with an iron fist. All these guys whining about rematches and title shots and venues … back in the day it was like “You’ll fight in Germany and you’ll like it, bitch!”

    too many events with not enough quality fighters… dana is taking the Hitler approach to mma expansion, lets go everywhere at once. But if you try too much at once its gonna bight you in the ass. There have already been like 16 ufc events this year… thats at least 160 fighters but how many good replacements do they have?
    Are you gonna be PPV or TV? pick one or your gonna keep making shitty cards with fighters nobody cares about as the main event: Munoz vs Weidman? Shogun vs vera?Struve vs that fake cro cop? Or how about cards where only the main event is worth watching like 147

    From the first TUF until like, 2009, I didn’t miss a single UFC event. Now I’ve missed so many that it doesn’t really matter because each event has fighters i don’t know and matchups I don’t care for.
