New, 2 comments

From UFC.com:

The UFC hits Los Angeles on Tuesday with a full slate of events to get fans ready for October 24th’s UFC 104 event at STAPLES Center. First, at 8am PT, fans can tune in to hear UFC President Dana White on KROQ’s Kevin & Bean show. Then, at 9:20am PT, White will be joined by UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and challenger Mauricio "Shogun" Rua on KTLA’s morning show. And finally, it’s the big event of the day at noon, as Machida, Rua, Cain Velasquez, and Ben Rothwell meet the media for the UFC 104 press conference. This event, which will be held at Nokia Plaza on 800 W. Olympic Blvd, is open to the public.

Dana White had a scheduled meeting in Los Angles according to MMAWeekly:

At the post-fight press conference for UFC 102 in Portland, Ore., White told MMAWeekly.com that he was flying to L.A. on Monday for another meeting with an undisclosed network.

 

When asked if he was finalizing a deal, White said, "I hope so... I really hope so."

Of course we covered the potential for a showdown between BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez to take place on network television.  So let's hope that meeting was fruitful, and that an announcement will be made shortly.  In the meantime, if the UFC ends up signing a network TV deal, who do you see it being with?
