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.
“My career’s been a fun ride thus far, to be able to look back some day and say I was a part of this is something I’ll be proud of. This is probably one of the biggest days in UFC history,” he told MMAWeekly.com‘s Erik Fontanez.
