More Pro Wrestling

Dave Meltzer reports that UFC has come to an agreement with TNA:

TNA has made a business deal with UFC regarding promotion of UFC's 2/2 PPV show, and in particular the Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir match.

Details aren't known, but it is expected there will be heavy advertising of the next UFC during the TNA shows over the next two weeks. In addition, during the body of the shows will be hype packages to build up the match.

Next week's Impact will include a Brock Lesnar training package, as well as a Kurt Angle interview, where he breaks down the Lesnar vs. Mir match.

Great idea for UFC, TNA has 1.5 million wrestling fans watching every week.  It's hard to say if it means anything for the future, but it may pave the way for that eventual Kurt v. Brock fight that was much talked about in the past.

Hopefully UFC is putting together all the packages, because TNA has a disastrous history of promoting anything.  As good as this is, it's still not as good as a deal with WWE would be for this kind of thing.  WWE may have been asking for a lot more.
