UFC press conference summary
 
Tito is back, Possibly fighting Mark Coleman as a "ring rust" fight.

Vitor Belfort and Rich Franklin headlining 103 @ LHW

ESPN deal signed for the UK

Dan Lauzon, Ben Rothwell, Chase Gormley, and Paul Daley all coming to the UFC.

Dan Henderson likely to get next shot @ Anderson Silva

Dana White: M-1's going to "co-promote"? They're going to help US? "That **** probably works in Russia. Not here

Tito Ortiz: "You'll never hear anything about money out of my mouth again."

ESPN Deal is a 3 year deal starting with UFC101, Free in the UK in HiDef

Dana White: UFC will go everywhere, including Russia. We can't be stopped.

White: We're coming to Japan. It can't be stopped.

Dana White: Dan Henderson is definitely next in line for the UFC middleweight title. Maia-Marquardt winner could be next after that.

White: nobody wants to see Mayweather vs. Marquez. Fans want to see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

Tito Ortiz: "I wish the UFC would give fighters gimme fights, but they don't."

Tito: the last time my back felt healthy was UFC 40 against Ken Shamrock.

Dana White: I wanted to sign Fedor so badly, and I was so sure it was going to happen.

Tito on fight with Lesnar: "I'd give it a try".

White: the deal that White said "would change the UFC forever" is "very close" to happening and NOT the Tito Ortiz deal.

Tito Ortiz: "You'll never hear anything about money out of my mouth again."

I wonder what they're paying him?

A lot more than what Affliction can now offer him.

Love him or hate him, I do like watching Tito fight and find that he is a entertaining fighter to say the least:laugh:
I guess again we have to wait for that 'ground breaking UFC news' will we ever find out what it is?

To me Tito is like a Diaz... can't stand them outside the cage... can't deny their skill inside of it.

205 is the deepest division. there are so many fights for Tito. rematch Griffin after he gets out of his coma from the Anderson fight. rematch Evans, rematch Wanderlei if he moves up to 205 again. he could face Franklin, Shogun, Rampage or even Chuck for the 3rd time. just a lot of fights at 205.

I have to think the "game changer" Dana's talking about is an ESPN/ABC (both part of the Disney broadcast tree) TV deal. Just my hunch...

Hughes_GOAT 08-01-2009 05:28 AM

the game changer is Aleks Emelianenko.

LOL, I love this one. Do you see this JB? You'll see the Mayweather/Marquez fight flop. I'm pretty sure I said it would be a disaster for PPV ratings in the thread. :laugh:
