that's it (way to nail your 18-34 year old target market)? I hope the Thursday announcement is a little more meaty and not - "we've signed a deal with Gatorade to be the official sports drink of the Octagon".

Well, it's gotta be something involving their International Expansion plan IMO....or Handy vs Fedor in the UFC

Dana got us all !!!

Well, of course it will be very good for the UFC bank account to sell figurines and all kind of UFC stuff around the world, good for them and i am happy for them but we were not waiting for that kind of major announcement !! lol

Well, on the other hand , i know a lot of guys here who will start a collection of ufc figurines !!!

i know tonnes of children at bars, and forking out the 40 bucks for the PPV


odd decision by white, but he's just going for any cash grab he can get.

Not too exciting because we all new it would come around.
I expect them to be statuettes rather than action figures so they will be for display not for 8 year olds.
I will be a collector.

Kinda like McFarlens.

Dana's annoucments always sucks he hypes them up and then its like damn!


I wouldnt be suprised if the huge thursday annoucment was that he will give

10 normal ordinay people a chance to face a champion in the octo. 2 people at each weight class random normal arse people with little to no training. Those two people fight and the winner gets a title shot. LIKE ROCKY!!!!


yea whatever he pretty much said that the things i thought it would be a (network tv deal) are not what is going to be.

hmm

I hope his announcement is much more than that. Otherwise i would say, that he tricked us all..


In all cases he is one bald Joker!

I think it's cool.Sure you guys might laugh now,but when those first figures price range swells to that of the PRIDE figures,you'll wish you would have bought em.

I wonder if it isnt part of a 10 year growth strategy. Attract the younger crowd and get to them as early as possible in any way. Im all for it if that part of the strategy. If it works, it would cause the sport to grow by leaps and bounds. Obviously they need more than just figurines.

Dana White's "Big News" announcements are about as exciting as watching 2 Horse Flys Mate! !

It won't be a WWE partnership, it would have leaked already. That wrestling stuff is always leaked by inside sources.

I'm thinking it has to do with sanctioning in New York....maybe saying their December card will be in MSG.

I hope it's a network deal, but probably not
