Reed Harris comments hours before landmark WEC PPV:
As you can imagine, this is a big night for us...and so you know, Dana has stepped up and given this thing everything he has,,,and we couldn't be more grateful. We are a team at Zuffa... all we want is for the event to be as big a success as we know it can be. Dana helping out has been huge!
As you know, Dana announced the largest fighter bonus's in the history of the company (he wouldn't even tell me prior to the meeting...I was blown away)... you should have seen the fighters faces... I felt pretty emotional as these are guys that have given the WEC everything... and I know in my heart that they will go out there tonight and do what they always do, make us all proud to be able to work with them and know them.
I feel really good about tonight.... Ill tell you what, if you could have seen the fighters faces when Dana announced the bonus's, it was actually a pretty emotional moment for me... they started yelling and clapping.... and as they left every single guy shook my hand.....
So, I can tell you this...theres not going to be any goofing around, lay and pray or guys playing it safe tonight...this thing is going to be On!
Like I said [earlier]...If you can afford it and buy it tonight, I appreciate it...if not but you still watch on Versus....thanks for that as well.
It's been almost 10 years of work, always tried to do the right thing, do the fighters right,,,,,,and hopefully this thing will do what I think it can.
Putting the suit on...getting ready to head over.... hope you guys all enjoy the show..and if your at Arco... come over and say hi...
