UFC may stay in Canada forever: White ticket tweet giveaway turns into near riot

Steve Cofield

Dana White thinks big, but he never saw this coming. Before each event the UFC president gives away his last tickets via Twitter. His 1.4 million-plus followers watch for #Hunt4UFC tweets, then have to meet him in a matter of minutes at specific locations. We've seen one of these ticket grabs go down in person at a place like Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Within minutes, a few dozen people arrive to grab a 20 or so tickets.

Watch what happens in Toronto when White tweets that he'll be at Dundas Square.


Within 45 seconds, dozens arrive (2:55 mark). The crowd eventually swells to what looks like 500-plus fans. It's a scary, but impressive scene. Canadians love their MMA.

You can watch UFC 129 on PPV (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) right here on Yahoo! Sports.
