    A few notable parts:

    - ESPN will now be covering the UFC on a regular basis, including weigh ins and results.

    - "I'll go out on a limb here and guarantee that we will have a huge TV deal for PRIDE in the United States and Japan."

    - Question: Shogun said he signed a contract for two UFC fights and two PRIDE fights, is that true?
    Dana: I have no idea what he means. It's not true.

    - The UFC is currently working on figuring out Fedor's status. Fedor's contract isn't exclusive to PRIDE, while Zuffa won't accept non-exclusive contracts for its fighters. (To clarify, Fedor does have a contract with PRIDE currently, but Zuffa won't accept it in its non-exclusive state.)

    - Chicago, Washington D.C., Boston, and Atlanta are all being looked at to host UFC events in the near future.

    - If Arlovski wins, he will probably fight winner of Cro Cop/Couture.

    - PRIDE should be coming to the United States for an event this year still.

    - Regarding Jerry Millen: "No hard feelings. I told him what was comin, he didn't want to listen. *laughs* I don't just say shit and not have it happen." :rofl:

    yup- i love how he has this air or seriousness to him, but then you see/hear him joking around makes him even funnier...
    the joke crocop played on mauro renallo was one of the funniest.

    I wonder if Dana was mad that he was saying those things, or more just pleasantely grinning because its actually pretty funny.

    I like how he talks about Zuffa, Himself and Fedors contract. And how Zuffa doesn't allow fighters to have non exclusive contracts etc.

    I thought that Fertita was running the pride side, not Zuffa. It really shouldn't be a conercern of Dana's. I guess saying "zuffa and Dana" are not part of pride was all a big front.

    Yea...you kind of have to take what Dana says with a grain of salt some times.

    PRIDE will stay exactly the same!
    Well, except for the weight classes...
    And, it will use unified rules...
