Toronto - UFC 129 week in Toronto is already jam-packed, but on Tuesday, the organization added one more must-see event to the itinerary.
For the first time in UFC history, all seven title-holders will gather for a presentation at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto on Friday, prior to the UFC 129 weigh-ins.
For the record, that includes: bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, featherweight champion Jose Aldo, lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, middleweight champion Anderson Silva, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
Both Aldo and St-Pierre will defend their titles at UFC 129 on Saturday night against Mark Hominick and Jake Shields, respectively.
“We wanted to give fans a truly once-in-a-lifetime chance to see all seven UFC champions gathered together and we couldn’t think of a better place to do it than in Toronto,” UFC President Dana White stated in a press release. “The entire week is going to be crazy. From the community events to the Fan Expo to 55,000 people at Rogers Centre for UFC 129, I am really looking forward to taking over the city of Toronto.”
The presentation will take place Friday at 3:15 p.m. ET.

Can anyone top the big three of Silva, Jones, and GSP as the best pound-for-pounder fighter?
