For the first time in five years, tomorrow starting at 12 Noon ET, the official Ultimate Fighting Championship® web site UFC.com will fade to black, as it prepares for the moment when it will officially relaunch.
Fans won’t be denied for long, as the brand new UFC.com will come back to life before the live UFC.com broadcast of the UFC 117: SILVA vs. SONNEN pre-fight press conference, which starts Thursday, August 5th at 4:00pm ET.
Fans visiting UFC.com after 12 Noon ET tomorrow will discover a temporary page with a clock ticking down to the opening of a new chapter in UFC history.
UFC fans around the world – check back Thursday afternoon to experience the power of the new UFC.com.
