All the notes you need from the UFC on FOX press conference today

In honor of Cliffnotes enabling me to consistently pass English Literature throughout high school, I’ve compiled a list of a few notes of the UFC on FOX press conference that happened at the W Hotel in Hollywood, California today. I’ve been doing this MMA stuff for a while and I’ve never been in a press conference with fans that were this boisterous. They were literally going nuts at every mention of Cain Velasquez and when someone from the audience screamed ‘I love you Dana,’ the entire room reverberated with cheers.

  • Dana says the UFC on FOX show will have a few added ‘bells and whistles,’ production wise.
  • When Junior Dos Santos entered the conference, the fans screamed ‘culero’ which is apparently Spanish for a very dirty place on the human body.
  • Dana says they’ve had more meetings with FOX than any other television entity they’ve ever dealed with. Admits the pressure is on them to deliver, but JDS and Cain will do what they always do.
  • Still working on broadcasting/streaming the other fights — mentions Facebook or
  • The ad sales are really, really high for the event.
  • Dana says the UFC has already received more credibility being associated with FOX.
  • When discussing advertisers, someone yelled ‘Pinkberry’ and everyone went nuts — again.
  • Josh Gross from ESPN made it to the front row of the UFC on FOX press conference. Looks like Dana and Josh finally squashed their beef from the entire TUF 4 debacle.
  • Eric Shanks of FOX said that MMA is a sport that he always wanted to get into.
  • Dana opens the questions up to the fans, one person asks if Cain thinks Junior Dos Santos hits harder than Cheick Kongo.
  • Another fan asks Cain if he can envision himself fighting Alistair Overeem. The crowd goes nuts, again.
