UFC 168: Special press conference



UFC 168 has arrived, and we are only hours away from the action. Before the most anticipated event in UFC history actually begins, the UFC has a ‘special’ press conference scheduled beforehand. Among the wild rumors swirling this week regarding Brock Lesnar’s return, and Anderson Silva’s possible retirement, many hoped that the conference would deliver some big news. Well, it looks like the press conference is simply the official launch of the new UFC digital network. Sorry Brock Lesnar hopefuls.

The press conference can be seen in the video above, live at 6/3pm ET/PT. One hour after the conference, the UFC 168 early prelims begin right here on Fansided. Remember to stick with Fansided all day as we will have around the clock coverage of the event.
