Fedor’s management are the UFC’s April Fools

We’re not the only ones getting in on the April Fools’ Day hijinx. Here’s what has up:

UFC Greenlights Construction of Russian Stadium
UFC President Dana White today greenlighted work to begin on the construction of a new Zuffa-owned stadium in Russia that will be able to hold a number of different sporting events, including soccer, boxing, and of course, mixed martial arts.

“This is a big moment for the company and I couldn’t have picked a better day to announce this monumental event,” said White. “I can’t wait for this Stadium to be finished and we’re even including the fans in the process by holding a contest on the internet for people to choose the name of it.”

Construction is tentatively scheduled to be done in time for UFC 115 on April 1st, 2010.

“A Project like this Reaches millions In the Largest group of Fans in the sport,” said White. “Out Of all the places in the world to put up a stadium, this was the only place for us, and we’re gonna Love Seeing the UFC here.”

Note that the last paragraph’s capitalization spells out APRIL FOOLS to avoid any unexpected consequences. And if you’re wondering WTF, here’s what the joke is all about.
