For those of you wondering why UFC president Dana White hasn’t been hitting up Twitter lately, well it’s because he has been unusually busy. The 205-pound division has recently experienced significant moves, however White claims that it is only the beginning as he will be making some “great” announcements tomorrow.

“Sorry i havent updated! I will have tons of great crazy news for u on monday,” White Tweeted on Saturday.

One of the things White may announce is that newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida will be making his first title defense against resurgent Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

This bout was arranged after former UFC 205-lb. title holder Quinton “Rampage” Jackson opted to coach opposite fellow-former champ Rashad Evans on the 10th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

It is believed the two Brazilians will headline UFC 104 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA this October.

No word on what else White may be hitting us with tomorrow, but we will keep you posted.
