San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis will not be headed to the UFC ... that we know of ... yet. The article stating that the mixed martial arts organization had agreed to a deal with 49ers All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis, was indeed an April Fools story brought to you by 49erswebzone.com.

The staff of 49erswebzone.com would like to once again thank you for making April Fools Day enjoyable and for helping to spread the article around. It was even mentioned on NBC Bay Area's website.
Also, we tortured our forum members a bit by messing with their minds. Some saw the viral music video 'Friday' by Rebecca Black automatically inserted into all of their posts. Others, through some additional trickery, thought everyone within the Parking Lot portion of the forum were talking about them when the word "I" was replaced with the viewer's username everywhere. And then there were those that had the word "49ers" replaced with "Cowboys" within our Niner Talk forum.
It was all in good fun and we appreciate everyone putting up with our self-entertainment.
