    **************************************** **********************************
    The special, which has already sold out the 6,700-seat arena, airs 7-10 p.m. Eastern time, preceding the debut of the new season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. The show, featuring coaches Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin, has about a week left in filming. After it concludes, Jackson will defend the light heavyweight title against Griffin on July 5 in Las Vegas. The hope is with 13 weeks of the two competing with each other, which will include one episode where the two nearly get into a fight, that it will be the biggest pay-per-view event up to that point of 2007. The formula has worked in building big matches in the past, most notably in 2006 when a Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock match coming off the series did 775,000 buys, still the second best figure in company history.

    Diamond said they will take the Ultimate Fight Night shows on a case-by-case as to whether to go three hours or the previous two hours.

    White also said that Brock Lesnar, whose debut on Feb. 2 led the company to one of its most successful pay-per-view events in its history, losing to Frank Mir, will have his second UFC fight in August. No opponent has been named but the leading candidate appears to be Justin McCulley.

    He also said the most anticipated WEC match thus far, a featherweight title defense by Urijah Faber against Jens Pulver, will take place this summer from Sacramento as a live special on Versus.

    Not really looking forward to this season. I know Rampage and Forrest are funny, but the guys in the house are getting dumber every season.

    I like Rampage. :o

    Agreed on the participant's level of conduct, though.

    Ummm theyre not saying that they got into a fight. Theyre just explaining the usual formula for the Ultimate Fighter shows, and how they build hype for the coaches fight. "The hope is" that the coaches will almost get into a fight on the show, but i doubt that they will; they seem more likely to become friends.

    Nope

    The hope is that people buy PPV's after seeing them compete against each other for 13 weeks.

    I also suspect fake drama. I think that the show would probably try to setup a scenerio where people tune in just to watch the B.S.
