There was news to be announced at the press conference following this Saturday’s UFC on Fox show in California.
For example, Ben Henderson will get his shot at Frankie Edgar’s belt. According to UFC president Dana White, the fight will take place February in Japan.
Hardly having a chance to revel in wearing his new waist accessory, Junior Cigano already knows his likely adversaries. The Brazilian will wait to find out the winner of the Brock Lesnar-Alistair Overeem fight on December 30.
What’s more, Dana said they’re close to holding the Brazilian version of the “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show and Brazil has come to the forefront as a market as though it were the new Canada, where the UFC has met with great success and financial gains. Also regarding TUF, White revealed that the rumors circulating that Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort would be coaches are false, saying he hasn’t decided who will coach yet.
