My (hopeful but inrealistic) guesses:

*Something related to a new television contract

*Something concerning PPV event at Madison Square Gardens - Wouldn't that be great? Too bad I'm just being hopeful.


*Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben coaching the next season of TUF


*Some sort of "huge" PPV event that could possibly include Silva/Leben

*The UFC signing a fighter that they've been after for a while (Fedor?
)

*Something related to Brock Lesnar

*PPV event will be held in new location

In order of guesses:
Not likely.

No.

No because of uncertainty regarding Leben (DUI charges).

Doubt it.

No.

If Lesnar's replacing Carwin to face Roy Nelson, yes.

Most likely.

Last I heard Jay Hieron was a free agent, but that's far from a "Major Announcment."

I bet it will be a card somewhere in East Europe or in East Asia.

How good would it be if they announced the rebirth of Pride.
It is totally hope driven but it would be awesome if Pride was relaunched by Zuffa, starting with a Huge show in Japan

He's going to announce that Gonzaga and Wanderlei have been tapped to play Donkey and Diddy Kong in a live action feature!

I gotta say that Forrest is the most simian looking fighter IMO
