Dana White to meet with Quebec commission

UFC president Dana White will meet with the Quebec Athletic Commission next week in hopes of saving UFC 97 "Redemption."

According to Corus Sports, White will present his case to the Quebec Athletic Commission on why they should stick to the Unified Rules of MMA for UFC 97.

The Commission are looking to do away with elbow strikes, and possibly reduce the size of the Octagon.

UFC 97, co-headlined by Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites and Chuck Liddell vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, is currently scheduled for the Bell Centre in Montreal on April 18. Tickets already went on sale Wednesday.
