The bill is not completely dead however... There is another hearing of it next Wednesday.

That rumor was shot down by Dana as well. Then again, I don't really trust Dana. Anyway, NY regulation wouldn't really be much of an announcement unless you live there.

I live in NY i'm about 45min from Manhattan that would be a huge announcement for me. I would be the happiest MMA fan alive. I really hope that is what the announcement is.

But it would be the biggest news possible from a business perspective. Its the oldest and most widely respected sporting regulation in the world, one of the worlds most populous and wealthy cities... Endorsements would follow, along with new credibility to the sport and further expansion in the the general population...

Dana White's Big Announcement: Co-Owner Lorenzo Fertitta Makes UFC His Main Job
Posted Jun 18th 2008 3:13PM by Michael David Smith
Filed under: UFC
Mixed martial arts fans who were on edge about the "mind-blowing" announcement UFC President Dana White has promised are going to be extremely disappointed now that the announcement has been revealed.
Kevin Iole of Yahoo is reporting that the announcement is that Lorenzo Fertitta is going to make UFC his full-time job, quitting his post as president of Station Casinos.
Fertitta and his brother, Frank Fertitta III, each own 45% of UFC, with White owning the remaining 10%. All the announcement means is that the Fertitta brothers have decided that Lorenzo should play a bigger part in the day-to-day management of one of their big investments, while Frank should play a bigger part in the other.
From the standpoint of White and UFC's employees a change at the top is a big deal. But the average UFC fan will greet this news with a shrug.

Why would this change the ufc for the next 5 years though?
I mean, management change , IS change, but, unless they decided that this change would be for X amount of time (meaning only 5 years) , I dont see the change in responsability as being the main revolution. It must be on what is being planned in regardes to this change.
Maybe Casino fights? lol
