As news of FOX scheduling a press conference for Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles to discuss a major deal, several of the elite in the UFC have taken off for Hollywood.
UFC President Dana White confirmed via his Twitter account that he has flown to Los Angeles, and reports say Georges St-Pierre, Frankie Edgar and Rashad Evans are all on their way to L.A., as well.
While no one from FOX or the UFC would confirm a deal has been agreed to, it would seem all the pieces are falling into place.
The press conference is set for 1 p.m. (PT). Currently, the UFC is signed with FOX Sports Latin America for broadcast rights to those countries.
John Ourand of Sports Business Daily says the press conference will announce ‘one of the biggest announcements in FOX Sports History.’
