UFC® President Dana White will be making a major announcement at the UFC® 82 PRIDE OF A CHAMPION pre-fight press conference in Columbus, Ohio.

UFC.COM will feature the official announcement at 1pm EST. Look for video highlights of the press conference featuring Dana White, along with a special guest, making the announcement later in the day.

they forsure rushed to put the fox deal together and i have a feeling that this is it because Dana forsure was flipping out and in a frenzy when he heard about his adversary gary shaw and cbs.

I have a feeling it is him announcing the Fox deal with Chuck and Shogun

I have a feeling it is just going to be Mark Colemans induction into the hall of fame.

haha if Mark coleman being inducted is the "special announcement" i will not buy the pay per view and instead goto a local bar to keep my 40 dollars out of zuffa. but theyre not dumb enough to call it a special announcement.

Fox deal is most likely

but someone mentioned something about hopefully randy and nogueira but that is wishful thinking. but what if that was really it. the preliminary injunction just occurred. but wow if Randy was the special guest and comes to a deal to fight nog and then maybe a co promotion wil happen with fedor becasue of all these tv deals

but thats not gona happen

Could be. Past "Big announcements" have been things that hard core fans knew as FACT for weeks.

I'm thinking it might be related to either UFN on 4/2 (confirming the 3 hours on Spike) or UFC 85 (rumors it could be FREE on Spike). Either way, Gary stole Dana's thunder once again.
