The UFC has announced that it will hold a media conference call tomorrow. Expected topics to be addressed at the conference call include: the announcement of a new TV deal, discussion over the Brock Lesner signing, and the UFC 79 fight between Chuck Liddell Wanderlei Silva.
Interestingly the call is set to take place at 4 p.m. ET, a mere thirty minutes before Randy Coutures scheduled press conference at Xtreme Couture which will be broadcast live on HDnet. It is unsure whether the this was an intentional move by the UFC or not, but we’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
Couture is expected to go into detail about why he left the UFC, the UFC’s current salary structure, including rumors that he made between 3.25 and 3.5 million per fight, and his intensions for the future regarding his contract, Fedor and M-1, and his movie career.
HDNet will carry the press conference live beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET as part of a special live edition of “Inside MMA”.
