The other day we told you about the possibility of Floyd Mayweather Jr. stepping into the cage and fighting for the UFC. We still don’t know if that is going to be Dana White’s big announcement this Thursday, but it is definitely an intriguing option. However, MMARated.com has word that something bigger is brewing. One idea that is being tossed around is that White will announce that Anderson Silva is jumping up in weight to fight Chuck Liddell this fall. Another possibility is that the UFC will join forces with Golden Boy Promotions. Then comes the doozie, Zuffa has sold the UFC to the king of trash TV FOX.
Ah yes, the big (and most logical) one which comes to us from a reliable source. We’ve heard the UFC on FOX rumors for quite some time and we’ve also heard the rumors that the promotion was on sale. We also know that the UFC was not willing to work with a network unless they had full production control. However, what if a network bought them for a hefty price? Then, all of a sudden, that issue is, well, an non-issue. The bottom line is that this is the kind of announcement you rent a secret location for.
Is the Zuffa/UFC era about to end? Have the Fertittas and White cashed out? Thursday can’t come soon enough.
That’s one way to get Tito Ortiz off his back.
