Dana White To Make ‘Major Announcement’ on Thursday

("I know, dude. Twins. We’re feeling pretty fucking blessed right now.")

The UFC sent out a short but provocative notice to members of the press earlier today, declaring that UFC President Dana White will make a "major announcement" during a media conference call this Thursday at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET. And that’s pretty much it; no hints as to the nature of this announcement were given whatsoever. Which means that, being responsible bloggers, it is now time to speculate wildly.

In a interview published yesterday, White was pressed on his company’s upcoming television strategy, to which he responded "we are working on a couple moves now and should be in a billion homes around the world in the next couple months." A billion, you guys. Though he wouldn’t share details, he promised that the UFC would be on network television for the first time in 2011 — maybe on Fox, maybe on NBC, maybe both — and that the UFC could start its own network "within the next couple years."

White’s new comments follow the open-ended boasting he made to at the beginning of the month:

"The (expletive) we are going to do in the next year is going to blow your mind," he added. When asked if that meant anything from a WEC/UFC merger to an Edgar/Aldo superfight, he artfully dodged. "You’ll just have to sit back and watch. You have no idea the crazy (expletive) we’re working on."

White told B&C this weekend that the UFC was "right in the middle" of its network television negotiations, so I wouldn’t necessarily assume that he’s announcing anything on that front this week. Following Cain Velasquez‘s defeat of Brock Lesnar, the UFC could very well be announcing their first event in Mexico, headlined by Velasquez vs. Dos Santos. Or, he could finally be lifting that unfair ban on vuvuzelas. Our guess is as good as yours, so if you think you have it figured out, let us know if the comments section…

UFC will be adopting Pride Rules and scoring. GSP loses his title when Thiago Alves knees his head into lumpy oatmeal.

Dana White is announcing that he is setting up the grudge match of the century. Thiago "Pitbull" Alves will be fighting Michael Vick.

I think he's announcing that he just saved 15% on his car insurance!
djp1988- October 26, 2010 at 8:21 pm
Also, chocolate milk is tasty, but Dana has been in the mood for strawberry lately. Weird, huh?

Jesus, I feel like I could do this all day, and I wouldn't be that far off from the truth.

Real talk though, I really hope WEC gets absorbed into the UFC. Aldo, Faber, Torres, oh my!

So You Think You're a Fuckin' Fighter? reality show spinoff produced and funded by Zuffa.
knucklesamitch- October 26, 2010 at 6:51 pm
It's either one of two things:

a) The next season of TUF won't be TUF at all, but rather a Real World/Road Rules Challenge type of show where the respective captains are Lesnar and 'Taker, and it will be WWE vs. UFC with the weekly Monday night time slot on USA Network on the line.

b) Zuffa bought DREAM.
KDHR3TBC- October 26, 2010 at 5:07 pm
Its gonna be Anderson vs GSP and if it is I want a cage potato mouse pad!

He's finally going to pay guys on the undercard more than 5k to get the shit beaten out of them by big name fighters that have just lost two in a row.
BuckWild- October 26, 2010 at 4:32 pm
One lucky ppv buyer will win a free bj from your choice of ring girl..

Actually.. Maybe it just a TUF show in China

They cloned Bruce Lee and he will fight Aldo!


The UFC just bought Strikeforce!

@ Cage Porktato

Awesome fucking caption. I think some fucking congratulations are in order... Send that fucker a box of cigar flavored donuts or some shit. Send him a vat of sunblock for that giant white head.

@ The Wild Speculations

Dana is going to announce that the UFC and their intergalactic overlords the Annunaki from the planet Nebiru have reached a deal to begin harvesting human souls from this solar system sometime late in the fiscal year of 2012. The Annunaki have agreed to purchase a 10% stake in Zuffa and will be building a special arena on their intergalactic (c'mon, say it with me- in ter gallllac tic) planet-ship to host a special event on Christmas day, 2012. They have just hired the dark lord Kramdar as marketing director to the ever-burning underworld and should be holding their first fully broadcast events in Hell sometime by mid-2013, just as soon as dimension-wide broadcast affiliates are hammered out and they can scrape together some form of athletic commission. They expect things to move forward rapidly because if there is one thing that both demons and the UFC excel at it is bureaucracy. Sometime by the beginning of 2014 Zuffa is going to build an enormous stone coliseum right in the middle of Las Vegas where fights will begin being held to the death (at the discretion of the Benevolent Emperor Lorenzo the First and the fickle fancies of the crowd) with soul energies of deceased fighters being distributed amongst Zuffa, the Annunaki, and Lucifuge the Dark Prince and CFO of Hell, INC. Dana White will be announced as the next pope, the papacy will be moving to Nevada, and one lucky follower of Dana's Twitter will be ascended to a glorious afterlife in a fucking pimp ass mansion on the suburbs of Heaven.

Still waiting for the promised Anderson Silva mulligan to make it up to all of us for buying the lame 112 ppv.

I vote for bringing Batista and Lashly in for a tag match in the Octagon vs. Lesnar and Taker....

How about a network deal with regular good matches and ppv events with great matches on the main card for 29.99.

The Chandella doll doesn't have a face. Dana claims manufacturing mix up, but I think its a shrewd business move to sell more than 5 of them.
Yazloz18- October 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm

that would point to a James Toney announcement

Arianny blow up dolls to be given away with each PPV purchase.

He's announcing his grandma Betty is going to be the new Octagon Girl.
