ESPN The Magazine has an interview posted with Dana White where he tells the world that the UFC will be making a visit to Atlanta, Georgia in September with Chuck Liddell as the headliner and also hints at a huge announcement to be made in the coming weeks:
DW: The fight is going to be in Atlanta, Georgia—that’s something we haven’t said publicly yet. There’s something no one else has heard. 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.
Let the speculation begin. Network TV deal? Premium cable TV deal? Only Dana knows and it should be interesting to hear about this “mind-blowing” announcement. This summer is heating up, ladies and gentlemen.
