    - Dana White confirms that they have signed Vitor Belfort. Belfort will fight Rich Franklin at UFC 103.

    - A 3 year deal has been signed with ESPN UK. Free, Hi-Def starting with UFC 101

    - Tito Ortiz is officially back in the UFC. Dana White says "Tito will retire in the UFC"

    - Tito: "Time cures everything. Dana apologized to me....It was about competition...financially I'm ok...Dana stuck by his word."

    - Ortiz states that there was no one to fight if he went to Strikeforce and that he feels totally healthy.

    - Tito is working with Freddie Roach and says he expects to fight in November or December.

    - It is confirmed that Vitor vs. Franklin will be at light heavyweight (205 lbs)

    - White confirms Tito's first fight back could be against Mark Coleman and expects some ring rust.

    - Dana says they are always working to complete a network deal but need "the right deal" which they don't yet have.

    - Tito says it was an offer he couldn't refuse and you'll never hear him complain about money again.

    - Dana claims that Dan Henderson is next in line for a title shot at 185.

    - Dana says the UFC is going to come to Japan and it "can't be stopped"

    - White says that no one wants to watch Mayweather vs. Marquez, they want to see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

    - Dana says he has no interest in bringing back Tim Sylvia or Andrei Arlovski.

    - White claims that M-1 can call him right now if they're ready to make a deal. He was very confident this was going to happen.

    White: the deal that White said "would change the UFC forever" is "very close" to happening and NOT the Tito Ortiz deal.

    - White claims they were willing to make a deal at almost any cost to get Fedor but he doesn't want to fight the best.
