Rumor: Fedor & Brock at UFC 103
Now this could be very interesting. The UFC vs. boxing debate has been going on for quite some time. UFC became Pay-Per-View's #1 customer in 2008 and also broke the all-time 1 year record in sales previously held by the WWF (now the WWE) from 2001.
For those who don't know, Mayweather vs. Marquez takes place the same night as UFC 103. Currently UFC 103 is kind of lackluster, but with Brock and Fedor added to the card, could be the largest PPV of the year or even all-time for MMA (plus, it's in Dallas, I'll buy a ticket, haha!).
Just last week, Mayweather was talking smack on MMA (again) and how whites created a sport because they couldn't compete with blacks. Dana might just blow his PPV event out of the water when he announces that Fedor has signed with the UFC and will face Brock at UFC 103: http://www.matt-hughes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2365 I personally think that would be awesome since Mayweather has been talking crap on MMA and self-proclaiming that he's the biggest PPV draw in the world. I'd love to see this fight become a huge failure so he would just shut up.
Fedor is holding a press conference tomorrow to announce his future, which has already been confirmed by the LA Times that he is signing with the UFC: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/spor...zing-deal.html
The UFC is scheduling a "big announcement" on Friday. This could be unbelievable!!! :yikes:
