Fresh off crowning the first Mexican-American heavyweight champion in combat sports history, the world’s premier MMA promotion has just issued a press release claiming UFC president Dana White will make a “major announcement” this Thursday.
Obviously, details surrounding the nature of the news are scarce, as White and Co. want to keep their secret under lock and key to build up the hype – which has caused Internet geeks to blast message boards across the globe with possible theories.
Additional UFC hoopla couldn’t have come at a better time, as the company hosted its biggest show of 2010 this past Saturday. Cain Velasquez used his entire arsenal of speed, power and skill to dethrone Brock Lesnar at UFC 121, the Octagon’s largest superstar – literally and figuratively.
The ever-elusive network deal has emerged as the early frontrunner for White’s announcement, per some industry insiders.
White will reveal the news on a media call this Thursday at 10AM PT/1PM ET.
