According to UFC.tv and The Boston Herald, President Dana White of the UFC is to make a big announcement live Monday July 17th on The Hot List on ESPN @ 3pm - 6pm EDT...

Hmmm... Seems interesting!

You are obviously a big Fedor fan - would you like UFC more than Pride if he were there?

No. He should stay in Pride but maybe once while he is still champion, have a UFC fight in the octagon. The opponent would matter who, would get dominated. I want him to stay with Pride for his whole career but fight in other organizations for promotional purposes.

They want a piece of the USA market so it would be good for them and for his personal profile also.

Thing is H/W of any standard are a bit thin on the ground in the UFC. I know I will get slated for that but that is my honest opinion. They are my least favourite fights to watch, and I can't see why the UFC would want him to come in and oll over anyone, nor what that would do for the UFC.

I think that we can clearly rule out that any of the PRIDE heavyweights that are in the tournament are NOT going to go to the UFC. . . . but i think it might be some kind of tv deal with ESPN, but thats just my idea

I wouldn't be suprised if they moved TUF5 from Spike to ESPN. Whatever the deal is, it should be good.

Maybe taking UFC off PPV and putting the events on ESPN? or some kind of deal that involves a TV show coming to ESPN
LOL, no way would UFC take off PPV. With the money they are raking in from PPV's you have to be nuts to believe that. Depending on where you live it costs $34.95 - $39.95 per PPV, if the buy rate is 200,000 do you think they will just throw that kind of money away? NO WAY, think before you post friend. Maybe a T.V. show on ESPN, that is most likely...

ahahahaha PPV is their biggest buy rate, i ment they would put UFC as like a show part of ESPN. . . . either that or they might merge with some company. . . but most likely talk about airing on HBO

if you know ANYTHING about UFC, you would know that Dana White has been talking about taking events off pay per view and putting them on HBO to gain more fans, and THEN convert back to PPV......think before you critize my post.....friend

Maybe the November fight between Silvia and Liddell (assuming Liddell wins) will be a Pride vs UFC PPV.

That would be sick but...haha probably just dreaming.
