I seriously doubt that there’s even one Ontarian who doesn’t know that UFC 129 is taking place this Saturday night at the Rogers Centre.

But what they may not even realize, is that there is a crazy, fun-filled schedule of very cool stuff happening all week long, starting today, and ending on Sunday May 1.

For any you fight fans out there that are lucky enough to be in Toronto this week, here is a complete list of all weekly events. For the rest of you...here’s what you’re missing.

Tell ‘em the “Coach” sent ya!
