UFC president Dana White has promised to make a "major announcement" on Friday at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT), officials today confirmed.

What that announcement is, though, remains a mystery.

However, UFC president Dana White subsequently narrowed it down: He's going to announce the headliner for the first-ever UFC on FOX card.

I hate the waiting/guessing game. I just want to know now!

I will say it won't be Lesnar on there though.

I'll be surprised if it's Overeem. It will be someone who the UFC feels comfortable with, most likely a fan favorite who speaks english for the networks, who doesn't stall out on the ground very often.

If I had my druthers, I'd put Anderson and Shogun on the quick turn around at lhw, but neither would be a good interview afterwards.

Mike Chiappetta said that Hendo is NOT happening. He's not signed. He said he didn't know what it would be, but he can promise it's not Henderson.

So then its for sure Henderson.

I was gonna guess Henderson vs Anderson rematch.

Hmmmmm, maybe Forrest/Bonnar 3? Lesnar returns vs Nog? Rashad vs Shogun? Im kinda stumped on this one. Shaq/Man Choi? lol

I doubt its overeem vs mir. I think that will happen in dec

Could be tito vs franklin.
Or davis vs machida.

I will have to turn my phone on around ten at work to see who it is

For once, I agree with prozacnation1978...

I think it's going to be Tito vs. Franklin.

Guillard or Guida vs Bendo
Torres vs Faber (not sure if either of these guys have a fight lined up)
Wanderlei vs Sexy
Tito vs Franklin (most likely)

According to most sources on Twitter, it's going to be JDS/Cain with a (maybe) Tito/Franklin as a co-main.
