Dana: I have no idea what he means. It's not true. - The UFC is currently working on figuring out Fedor's status. Fedor's contract isn't exclusive to PRIDE, while Zuffa won't accept non-exclusive contracts for its fighters. (To clarify, Fedor does have a contract with PRIDE currently, but Zuffa won't accept it in its non-exclusive state.) - Chicago, Washington D.C., Boston, and Atlanta are all being looked at to host UFC events in the near future. - If Arlovski wins, he will probably fight winner of Cro Cop/Couture. - PRIDE should be coming to the United States for an event this year still. - Regarding Jerry Millen: "No hard feelings. I told him what was comin, he didn't want to listen. *laughs* I don't just say shit and not have it happen."
