As the hours tick by, the impact of the UFC’s announced television partnership with Fox on Thursday continues to build in its perceived significance.

That feeling is spilling over in several directions, and it’s something that wasn’t missed by UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, who was flown out to Los Angeles to take part in the announcement.
