UFC Fight Night “Saskatoon”: What we know about the UFC’s first trip to Saskatoon, SK

UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliveira (also known as UFC Fight Night 74) is an upcoming MMA event that will be held on August 23, 2015 at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

This marks the debut of the UFC in the central Canadian region.

The event is expected to be headlined by a featherweight bout between rising stars Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira.

A welterweight clash between Rick Story and Erick Silva was originally expected to take place at UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Romero. However on June 19, it was announced that several fights were postponed as international fighters experienced travel restrictions due to technical issues within the Bureau of Consular Affairs division of the U.S. State Department which produces travel visas. The fight was later rescheduled for this event.

Canadians such as Sam Stout, Chad Laprise, Olivier Aubin-Mercier, Patrick Cote, Valerie Letourneau and Chris Kelades plus many more are expected to compete at the event.

Here is what we know so far:

Max Holloway vs. Charles Oliveira
Rick Story vs. Erick Silva
Patrick Côté vs. Josh Burkman
Chris Kelades vs. Chris Beal
Maryna Moroz vs. Valérie Létourneau
Yves Jabouin vs. Felipe Arantes
