The UFC Promises A Big Announcement During Tonight’s WEC Event

According to the UFC’s official twitter account we should expect a big announcement at tonight’s WEC Event on Versus.

“We heart the next 48 hours: WEC, UFC Fight Night, and a fight announcement on Versus during WEC to blow your mind (in the good way).”

Don’t get too excited though.  We can’t say for sure, but it’s not likely to be some completely out-of-the-blue earth-shattering news that no-one was expecting.

The smart money is on it being an official announcement of the first of  two UFC events that Versus will air in 2010, which is believed to be Ultimate Fight Night 21 on March 21st.  The headline bout for that card has already been widely reported as Brandon Vera vs Jon Jones.

Having said that we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that we’re wrong, and it is something else that does indeed blow our minds (in a good way!).


As predicted the announcement was the Vera Vs Jones fight which will headline the UFC’s first live event on Versus.
