The UFC has announced a conference call with the media on Thursday at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT to announce a new television deal. No details were provided so it is unclear if the new deal is a renewal with Spike TV or if there is something else that has been agreed upon with another outlet.

Also, Brock Lesnar, Chuck Liddell, and Wanderlei Silva will all be on the call as well.

In addition to announcing the new TV deal, UFC president Dana White will be introducing Lesnar to the media following his recent addition to the UFC’s heavyweight division.

question to wand about the problems other pride fighters had problems fighting in ufc:

wand

"now i only train in the cage in the octagon. fighting is fighting. "

question to wand: after 2 losses, are you ready physically and mentally for another hard fight

wand

"now i train hard. im hungry to win. i wanna come back to the top. and fight with chuck now is the best moment for me. i wanna give a good show for my fans"

question: do you think you got the best years ahead of you being young still

wand

"yeah the next years i wanna come back to the top. next 2-3 years will be the best in my career"

dana talks:

 "the deal was never about fedor. it was about his manager.what they would get. they didnt give a shit about what fedors what they gonna get. theyre full of shit"

"theyre full of shit about the numbers too. you know what i mean. fedors manager is a fucking liar"

dana is working himself up and cursing to the left and right  Grin

yeah that guys was a freakin science experiment back in his wwe days......

my best guess is he'll be strong for the first 2 minutes of his first fight in the ufc and he's gonna be gassed into a state of uselessness

here's some more info

"They are commited to 26 episodes of TUF each year for the next 2 years. 1 season of tuf in 2010 and they are trying to put together a brand new fight show but there isnt much info about what they are trying with that right now. There are other shows in the works that the UFC and SPike think are going to be big hits. "

jesus 26 episodes a year

"-It looks like BJ Penn will possibly be fighting in December "

"-Dana says that every time they have gone to different places they have broken venue records so the reception has been good. "

"-There are plans to go to Chicago next year. As as sson as they are legal in Chicago they will be there. "

"-Dana says that Andre Arlovski has not been forgotten. He is just kind of sittin on the bench right now. Says they are trying to get him back. "

"-DAna says ticket sales for UFC 78 have been great. They plan on selling out. "

"-Dana thinks that they may possibly end up with an HBO deal someday but now is not the time "

"-Brocks first fight will be Superbowl Saturday. "

"-Dana tells a UK reporter that they are working on a TV deal to show live fights in the UK "

"-Dana comments on Frank Warren (UK reporter) saying that the UFC is a flash in the pan. Says Warren is an old school boxing guy and the UFC scares guys like him. "

"-4-5 possible UK shows next year "  Shocked looks like im gonna go again  Cool

-Brock is asked if he is glad to be out of the WWE with all of the deaths happening. Brock replies "Absolutely".

-Dana says the 2 biggest reality shows on TV are American Idol and TUF. None of the other shit matters.

Dana is asked about Kurt Angle. Says that Kurt is a good guy and he likes him. Puts over ANgles wrestlings credentials. Thinks that Kurt just wants to jump right from Pro-wrestling and give it a go. Dana says that if Kurt does that he will "get his f***ing ass kicked"
