Dana White Claimsjohn Perretti Is Still In



DANA WHITE CLAIMS
JOHN PERRETTI IS STILL IN


Dana White
Yesterday, after receiving an e-mail from John Perretti, we reported that he was let go of his duties as UFC matchmaker by the new management [ZUFFA] — A report that Dana White flatly denied yesterday on Eddie Goldman’s "No Holds Barred" show. White, the new acting president of the UFC, stated that he has not gotten a chance to sit-down [in person] to discuss the future with Perretti. White claims Perretti is still very much the matchmaker–at this time. Perretti however felt he was no longer the matchmaker after speaking with White a few days ago.

So, as it stands… according to Dana White, John Perretti is still matchmaker for the promotion. Perretti is out of the country on a movie set and unable to be reached for comment at this time. I’m sure he will be happy to learn he [officially] is still the matchmaker today.

From the event’s promoter, an official IFC press release:


IFC Logo
IFC WORLD TOUR

IFC FIGHTING WORLD TOUR PRESENTS
CLASH OF THE TITANS


The International Fighting Championships ("IFC") is bringing the world’s most intense sport back to the land where it was born three nearly thousand years ago. Athens, Greece will play host to the Clash of the Titans on May 26, 2001 when the IFC World Tour makes its triumphant return to Europe!

Greece, who’s ancient Olympic Sport of Pankration was the forerunner to Mixed Martial Arts, will be treated to a night of action that will be sure to match the excitement and intensity of those ancient fights. The card will feature a four-man tournament to crown the IFC World Middleweight Champion, along with a heavyweight super-fight, a four-man heavyweight tournament, a four man lightweight tournament and two preliminary bouts.

It is the IFC, it is in Greece and it is real!
