The Ultimate Fighting Championship invades Canada this week, and fans are invited out to join the pre-fight activities.

UFC officials today announced fans in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, are invited to the city’s Robson Square for Thursday’s “UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin” pre-fight press conference

The event, which can be attended free of charge, takes place at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT local time).

Featuring a heavyweight main event between top contenders Junior Dos Santos and Shane Carwin, “UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin” takes place June 11. The night’s main card airs live on pay-per-view, and Spike TV will also broadcast a pair of preliminary contests.

Among the expected participants at Wednesday’s press conference are Dos Santos, Carwin, UFC president Dana White, UFC director of Canadian operations Tom Wright and co-main event contestants Kenny Florian and Diego Nunes.

The official weigh-ins for UFC 131, which take place Friday, also will be open to the public. However, due to a recently scheduled NHL game at the previously reported location of Rogers Arena, the location of the ceremony has yet to be determined.
