Here's the new trailer from Showtime for the Fedor-Werdum fight. Showtime deserves some credit for making a compelling trailer with little in the way of footage (thank you Sherdog for the photos). Then again Mauro's hyperbole goes crazy for Werdum at the end there, e.g., "HE'S SO FAST!" That's an awkward line to end your voice over with.

Dana White reacts to the news that Fedor vs. Rogers will be on CBS. For those that can't watch the video the money quote is below. "Now if you look at all the competition that has tried to come after us in the last five years. Do you think Strikeforce and Showtime are the one's that are going [expletive make a difference? Showtime has been second rate at everything they've ever done. When you talk to these guys who are the exectutives at Showtime. They are the most cocky, arrogant, pompous, dicks you've ever met in your life. Okay? Now if they were like that and had something to be cocky and arrogant about that would be one thing. They're second rate in television. They've been second rate in sports, boxing or whatever. And they are going to second rate in Mixed Martial Arts too. We are going to kick Showtime's ass."
