    "UFC 97: Redemption" fight card official with 12 bouts

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Mar 14, 2009 at 5:15 pm ET
    [​IMG]With just over a month remaining before the world's biggest MMA organization returns to Canada for "UFC 97: Redemption," the UFC has officially announced the evening's full activities.

    Featuring a main event of middleweight champion Anderson Silva versus challenger Thales Leites, UFC 97 will also feature 11 other matchups.

    UFC 97 is scheduled for April 18 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The main card will air live on pay-per-view.

    Almost one year to the day after the UFC's first visit to Canada for UFC 83 in April 2008, the Bell Centre once again reached sell-out status in less than one week. UFC 83 set the organization's all-time attendance (21,390) and live gate ($5.1 million) records.

    The evening's full card will now include:

    MAIN CARD (televised)
    • Middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites
    • Chuck Liddell vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
    • Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Brian Stann
    • Cheick Kongo vs. Antoni Hardonk
    • Luis Cane vs. Steve Cantwell
    PRELIMINARY CARD (un-televised)
    • Mike Ciesnolevicz vs. Eliot Marshall
    • Xavier Foupa-Pokam vs. Denis Kang
    • Jason MacDonald vs. Nate Quarry
    • Ed Herman vs. David Loiseau
    • David Bielkheden vs. Mark Bocek
    • Ryo Chonan vs. T.J. Grant
    • Sam Stout vs. Matt Wiman

    Although I love Chonan, I'm surprised he's not cut yet.

    MacDonald/Quarry should be on the main instead of the TUF guy and the nobody ever heard of guy.

    UFC puts on so many cards this is why not every1 is stellar "on paper"

    fuck paper,
    the cards you people complain about the most end up being the best cards to watch.

    Itll be nice to see either Shogun or Chuck be severely disappointing.

    anderson my fucking MURDER.

    Chuck cause i still like him, and shogun has looked like ass in the ufc.

    Kongo and hardonk could be a really good war.

    Luis cane showed some badass muay thai last fight-i think he will be a future star of the division.

    Gotta go with denis- he has had some bad fights lately, but i still want him to return to form.

    McDonald is too slow to be able to takedown quarry.

    I hate ed herman- and i always liked loiseau.

    Beilkeden/bochek is either going to be a great ground war or a lame standup fight.
