    Arrow UFC says something BIG is coming...


    ** this sounds interesting...I wonder what the BIG announcement will be? any ideas guys?




    But Dana White is staying tight-lipped as to what it is.

    According to an interview by ESPN The Magazine's Ryan Hockensmith, UFC President Dana White says next Thursday he will make a huge announcement that will shock rattle the bones of MMA fans. Hockensmith quotes White as saying:

    "You have no idea some of the stuff that we have planned. I'm going to make an announcement next week that is going to blow people's minds. That deal is done, but my employees don't even know yet. I'm renting out a place next Thursday and I'm going to tell them. Then we'll make the announcement later that day. It's an indicator of where this business is going over the next five years."

    I think they hurt the sport more than help. When people see them on TV they ask me why I watch that crap. Tough to tell a non-fan that MMA is NOT WWE when they see those 'personalities'...

    Breaking News is:


    Arianny is going to marry me.






    Also, Dana White will pay me 10 million for a one fight contract to fight Big Nog. I'll win of course. Then I'll teach the Nog brother's BJJ, and perhaps let Anderson Silva learn my striking techniques.

    well,
    I tried to talk her out of killing you for your life insurance policy, but I think she wants to spoil me beyond her means. I'm a good guy though, so I thought it would be the right thing to do to at least give you a chance to think about turning her down when she starts with the seduction ploy.

    I doubt it's Fedor, and at this point I hope it's not. Their are better fights outside of the UFC for Fedor.

    It's probably a tv deal with Fox or HBO.

    I hope so. I'd love to see that idiot get his a$$ whooped. Why would he fight in MMA, when he could make 10x more money in Boxing? We all know Mayweather is all about the cheddar.

    ummm....fail

    Mayweather with boxing rules only = win, period...
    Mayweather with mma rules only = him to hospital, quickly


    I hope it's not a tv deal. That would really take the anticipation factor out for me...i loved it when it was rare to see an mma ppv, now it's every third week......eh, no go.

    Nothing would saturate it more than a tv deal

    He has expressed interest in it before, and has been training BJJ and grappling for the past 6 months. He also might be trying to get in on the ground floor of something right when it's exploding. He did just turn down 20 million to fight Oscar De La hoya aswell, so he can't be completely about the money.

    A bunch of members of AKA have been saying for a bit that he was going to make the cross over. However, it is still a rumor, and also a bit of a long shot.

    I think Floyd would be good if given enough time, but I find it hard to imagine his career not getting rushed.

    Yeah, I know he's expressed interest, but I think that's just him running his mouth, like usual. I am surprised that he turned down 20 mil.

    I agree, he could probably be really good if he invested the time, but like you said, he'll be rushed. He would be a pretty small LW, I think he walks at 155. He could afford to put on a little mass to lose a touch of quickness.

    its funny how you guys brought up Mayweather : check this out

    ** it makes sense doesn't it?

    [B]Is Floyd Mayweahter leaving Boxing for MMA

    In case you missed it, Floyd Mayweather Jr. shockingly announced his retirement from professional boxing on Friday.

    The move stunned quite a few people in the boxing world because plans had been in motion for a rematch between Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya to take place on Sept. 20. The fight has been canceled and with it, Mayweather is walking away from a $20 million payday for the fight.

    “It is with a heavy heart that I write you this message today,” Mayweather said in a statement. “I have decided to permanently retire from boxing. This decision was not an easy one for me to make as boxing is all I have done since I was a child. However, these past few years have been extremely difficult for me to find the desire and joy to continue in the sport.

    “I have said numerous times and after several of my fights over the past two years that I might not fight again. At the same time, I loved competing and winning and also wanted to continue my career for the fans, knowing they were there for me and enjoyed watching me fight. However, after many sleepless nights and intense soul-searching I realized I could no longer base my decision on anything but my own personal happiness, which I no longer could find. So I have finally made up my mind, spoken to my family, particularly my mother, and made my decision.”

    To me, the decision makes little sense. While there were very few hurdles left in climb in boxing for Mayweather, to walk away from $20 million for just one more fight speaks volume. I don’t think he’s walking away to take up golf or sit around and play shuffleboard. Mayweather is still a relatively young man (he’s 31) still in his athletic prime. There has to be something else going on here that we don’t know about.

    Mayweather participated in a pro wrestling angle for the WWE earlier this year, which culminated in a featured match with Paul “The Big Show” Wight at Wrestlemania this past match. Mayweather’s haul for the performance has been rumored to be anywhere between $2-20 million. Officials were said to have been happy with Mayweather’s performance and the door was left open for his return.

    In addition to pro wrestling, Mayweather has also flirted with the idea of getting involved with MMA. In recent months, Dallas Mavericks owner and HDNet Fights founder Mark Cuban announced that Mayweather was looking to get involved in MMA. It was unclear at the time as to whether he was looking to become a competitor or get involved in an ownership capacity.

    But the timing of Mayweather’s announcement is very curious. UFC President Dana White revealed earlier this week that a huge announcement is planned for this coming Thursday. I speculated in a column earlier today that I believe it will have to do with network television. But what if I’m wrong and the announcement had to do with Mayweather signing a contract to fight for the UFC?

    Sounds a bit far fetched, doesn’t it? Well, the idea of Mayweather walking away from a $20 million payday is equally far-fetched. For him to walk away from that kind of money likely means he’s walking towards something that could be even more lucrative. I’m just not 100 percent sure what it is.

    Because you said he'd get his a$$ kicked, and my reasons for my response was clearly written in my statements under that which followed, ok...

    That is where I agreed with what you were saying, with the assumption if he fought MMA rules

    And I also disagreed that he would get his a$$ kicked, if somone, of the same size, fought him in a boxing ring

    When you made your statement, it was blanket, mine was specific. I see no need in your vulgar approach to this conversation...if that' is your attitude, then fail = your personality.

    When he says its an indicator of where they are going for the next 5 years, I just dont feel he means any specific guy has signed. Things that come to mind maybe Wec and UFC will combine, maybe the weight classes are changed or some added. Maybe they signed on with HBO and will have less PPV and more bigger events on HBO, Maybe adding a team type competition. Just speculation, but I cant imagine he would refer to someone being signed as a new direction for the next 5 years.

    And I also disagreed that he would get his a$$ kicked, if somone, of the same size, fought him in a boxing ring

    When you made your statement, it was blanket, mine was specific. I see no need in your vulgar approach to this conversation...if that' is your attitude, then fail = your personality.
