Here’s the sweet intro Fox put together to open the press conference today for those who missed it.

I’d like to note that this deal is with FOX’s sports division and not the entertainment division like EliteXC and Strikeforce worked with at CBS. I think that’s important because it signifies that FOX sees the UFC and mixed martial arts on par with mainstream sports like football, baseball and basketball, whereas CBS more or less viewed it as something akin to the WWE or “sports entertainment.” That’s a pretty big deal.
