Q&A with Dana and Joe from the UFC 75 Weigh-ins

I got this from another user on another forum, so take it for what it's worth...

Quote:
Hey bros thought ive give you guys a heads up on what happened today before the weigh-ins there was a q and a with Dana and Joe Rogan, alot of interesting questions here is a brief overview of what Dana said...

He said he was very close to signing Fedor but he would not be there tomorrow, both he and rogan had massive grins of their faces, i thought he was lieing and the impression i got was that it was a done deal!!!

Dana said he has no doubts he will be signing Brock Lesner soon

Mark Hunt is under contract with the ufc at the moment but they dont know what to do with him, his biggest problem is the weight

If Sherk fails his appeal he will be stripped of the title and bj and stevenson will fight for the vacant title..

Arlovski will be fighting again in november didnt say who but said it would be a great match-up (my money is on big nog)

UFC will be doing shows in Canada, Mexico and Germany soon as well as more shows in the engalnd and scotland

He thinks banning steroid users for a year is a big enough punishment as they lose the ability to earn a living for a year

He would be interested in signing Denis Kang but had not heard from him or his management

No featherweights in the ufc for now, looking to push lighter fighters in WEC

Did not rule out when asked about the possibility of signing James Thompson in the future (not sure he knew who he was!)

Cant think of any other stuff right now and im sure the weigh-ins vids will be up by now (rampages pants lol), ill post some photos in a bit and of course will be at the event tomorrow

If that's true, than I'm ecstatic. Hunt in the UFC? Fedor? Kang? Orgasm?

James Thompson is a joke. Though I have always been a fan of the freak show fighters I dont know why someone would even bring up him being picked up by the UFC. He just got KO'd in like 10 sec by a nobody.

That seems like too much information to be given out but maybe I am wrong. Seems like Dana has been somewhat silent on a lot of those topics lately to suddenly just reveal the answers to them all. But if its true, I sure hope Hunt makes weight and joins the Heavyweight ranks because man would I love to watch Hunt in the UFC!!!



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Hunt vs the loser of Sylvia/Vera for his debut would be perfect.
