UFC on FOX Press Conference Observations.


Some quick notes on what I noticed:

- I had goosebumps hearing the Fox Sports theme song and then seeing the UFC and Fox logos together. Christmas has come early.

- Joe Rogan looked nervous.  He seemed to have trouble talking without saying "cunty" or "rape choke."

- Dana apparently thought Ariel Helwani was breaking the news, cause he left his suit at home.  Therin lies his charm, I suppose.  At least it was a FOX shirt.

- Chuck looked awake and conscious (sort of).  That was a plus.

- Looks like Frankie Edgar is the new GSP.

- After years of crusty old white guys bashing MMA, how fucking awesome was it to see FOX's crusty old white guys talk about how awesome MMA the UFC was? 

- TUF edited the week of, with a live fight at the end.  The coach's training camp during the show. Awesome.

- 32 weeks of live fights on FX.  Cool beans.

- lol at Josh Gross asking the first question.  It'll be interesting to see main stream media dealing with Dana Fucking White.

- Nov 12.  1st show!

- No Gladiator! YUS!  Robots maybe? Hmm... not sure if like...

-  I kept hoping Joe would say, "The UFC is FOR REAL!"

- There will be so much more scruitiny wih the UFC by the media.  Everything from the stuff Dana says, to the fighters and how little much they get paid. I hope Dana and crew are ready for it.  I hope the hardcores are ready for it.  Our baby is all growed up and is about to go through the gauntlet.

- I know there are a lot of haters out there - of Dana, of the UFC, etc.  But if you're genuinely not excited about this deal, then I don't know what to tell you.  It's one thing for Strikeforce to flop on CBS.  It's another if the UFC flops on FOX.  We gotta support this.  This is a great day to be an MMA fan.  I am buzzed.
