UFC 115 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on June 12, 2010 at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[1]

Background

This will be the fourth UFC event to be held in Canada, following UFC 83, UFC 97 and UFC 113 and the first UFC event held in British Columbia since they passed a bill to sanction MMA, on December 17, 2009.[2] This event is in jeopardy to happen in Vancouver because there is still no regulations in place to promote the sport professionally within Vancouver.[3] A bout between Randy Couture and Rich Franklin was rumored to take place at this event. However, Couture's attorney revealed that a bout between the two is more likely to take place in August.[4]

The main event was expected to be Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz. However, in March, Rich Franklin was announced as Liddell's possible opponent for this event, after Ortiz had to pull out.[5]

Dana White then denied, via his Twitter account on March 13th, 2010, that Ortiz has pulled out of the fight, and that Liddell/Ortiz was still on, as well as Couture/Franklin at an unspecified date. [6]

Other bouts currently rumored to be in the works for the event include:
