Ufc Uk Press Conference Tomorrow

From Josh Hedges of Zuffa/UFC:

UFC UK Press Conference Tomorrow

Join us tomorrow at the Sports Cafè in London as the UFC invades the UK. At 11:00 am, the UFC and Sky Sports will hold a press conference to officially introduce the UFC.

Everyone has landed in London and they are all gearing up for the history-making day ahead of them tomorrow.

Since the first rumors of the UFC coming to the UK several months ago, the response has been astounding. Several members of the British media attended UFC 36, including journalists from Front Magazine and The Sun, the UK’s biggest selling tabloid. The media is all over the UFC. Early expectations were for about 50 members of the media to cover the event, but now we’re expecting well over 100 to show up.

Fighters attending the conference will be former UFC Welterweight Champion Carlos Newton, and British stars Ian Freeman, Mark Weir, and Leigh Remedios. UFC President Dana White will also be on hand to host the press conference and answer questions.
