We just received word from the UFC about a conference call scheduled in a mere twenty minutes at 5 p.m. ET. This is "Barack Obama calling a press conference in the middle of the night" type of news here as the UFC typically schedules their calls weeks in advance.

There is literally no hint at what this conference call is about. The title is "White Expected to Make Major Announcement" and a standard three paragraph description of the Ultimate Fighting Championship

Follow me on Twitter at @Mike_Fagan_13 for live updates from this call. I'll provide a recap of the call when it ends.

So, in the fifteen minutes you have to guess? What is it? Is the UFC just announcing its new Twitter policy? Did the UFC purchase the NHL? Are we finally getting that long-sought UFC network deal? Is this something to do with the upcoming UFC 130? Find out in short order!
