    Fucking fail. From sherdog...

    Today on CNBC Dana did not make that "Big Announcement" that has been discussed over the past several days. He was on the show to announce that the UFC was coming out with a line of UFC action figures and accessories. While on the show the interviewer asked him to eliminate some of the possible rumors that have been circulating. Dana confirmed that the announcement had nothing to do with Mayweather, a TV deal, going public or WWE. If the action figures were the big announcement the CNBC interviewer would have asked questions about the big announcement. He would have asked questions like, "Why is this such a big deal for the UFC?".

    Bottom line there is still an announcement to be made later this week.

    For the people that are discrediting the action figure announcement, it is still quite significant. The UFC/MMA supporting demographic has been 18-34, with the action figures they will be tapping into a younger audience. This will help push MMA into the mainstream.


    As far as a source is concerned, I watched the segment on CNBC.
    I would buy a Gabe Rudiger figure if it came with a plastic cake and enema machine.

    Thanks to our good friend David “Jaeger” Andrest, it looks like UFC President Dana White and Brock Lesnar will announce on CNBC today at 12:45 p.m. ET a new merchandising deal with toy maker JAKKS Pacific

    This announcement likely isn’t going to be the same as what will be announced on Thursday. That is, unless Dana is like the Steve Carrell character in the “40-Year Old Virgin” and is so excited action figures that he needs a company-wide meeting to discuss

    Dolls........You've got to be fucking kidding me. **** you, Dana White!!!!

    And, he debunked all of the things that could've made his "big announcement" later this week worth a ****.

    No Mayweather. No network fights. Then, who gives a ****? Eat a dead man's dick, Dana.

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."
