“There’s something no one else has heard. You have no idea some of the stuff that we have planned. I’m going to make an announcement next week that is going to blow people’s minds. That deal is done, but my employees don’t even know yet. I’m renting out a place next Thursday and I’m going to tell them. Then we’ll make the announcement later that day. It’s an indicator of where this business is going over the next five years.”

Maybe they got a deal with Jack Daniels to goi along with the Bud Light.

I think with the majority of yinz, it could be a TV Deal..He said for the next 5-years so i dont think he's signed a certain fighter.Kinda hoping it would be a deal with someone like Spike have them air the PPV"S because if the UFC ends up like the CBS Debacle with all the "We dont want this to look brutal to save our image bullshit" i'd be dissapointed..I mean spike shows all the UFN and TUF anyways.Maybe it'll be mtv..i mean they show hot chicks making out with each other why not have some fights...But fox would imo would be the best amongst the big 3..


Possibly they are going to announce that Kalib Starnes will be inducted into the HOF.

I'm starting to get sick of these "huge" announcements. They are usually a let down.

Anything other than a TV deal would be another disappointment.

Same here. And I think Xlite XC on CBS benefitted the UFC because now other networks are going to see the ratings potential for MMA, and now major networks are going to be coming to the UFC. I predict it to be soemthing like Bud Lights UFC Fight Night on FOX....or soemthing like that. Something majorly sponsored by Bud Light.

I think, and hope, we can rule out announcements of signing certain fighters and of showcasing fights in other countries. He said this is going to change MMA for the next five years.. I believe it could be a TV deal, though how this doesn't get leaked at all I don't know. ESPN or FOX having Fight Nights every month would allow the UFC to keep most of their talent.
