Dana White: I’m doing it Tuesday. Let me tell you how out of [expletive deleted] control that thing is. I was talking to ESPN and [the reporter] was talking about competition and I said, ‘Let me tell you what. People have been trying to compete with the UFC for years, even before we bought it. The last big one everyone thought was a big threat ...




Looks like Dana is trying out to play cornerback.

that's stupid, he tells the media he has some huge F*cking annoucement but the annoucement is only for his employees.

Dana: "im going to tell the media of this big annoucement that im not going to tell them, only to my employees."

Sounds like his announcement really isn't that big. That's crap he's backpeddling and acting like this wasn't a big announcement for the media when he was just on the radio hyping the announcement to the public and thwarting rumors of what it could be.

Just for the employees? What, a new 401k plan for the fighters? Who cares.

Actually, if I remember correctly, he said last week he's telling his employees and THEN he's telling the public later that day.

Anyway, yeah, I expect the announcement to be big if it's gonna effect MMA for the next 5 years. Even he doesn't go public with it, with everyone in the UFC knowing about it, SOMEBODY will leak it. Or everyone will tell different stories and then he'll hold a conference to straighten everything out.

Although, at this point, it BETTER be a big announcement. I don't wanna wait almost 2 weeks to find out that Charmin is now the official asswipe of the UFC, knawmean?

i think the announcement was going to be The legalization of MMA in New york, i think Dana was over confident that the bill would pass, and we all know that fell through....no he is trying to say it wasnt as important to back out of it....

Anyone think the announcement is the UFC purchasing the IFL? Not sure how it would benefit the UFC for the next 5 years though...

UFC adds 145 and 135. Mayweather is then contracted to be a commentator for a year until he starts fighting. Adding more weight classes to UFC would change things. We would get a title fight every PPV.

if it's for the employees only i hope it's better health benefits and pay for the fighters by doing so you will lure more fighters to the ufc, while others will stay
