Dana White Talks Conor McGregor & more!
Dana White recently spoke to UFC.com about the contenders in the UFC Featherweight Division. Here is what he had to say… “Especially with all the excitement in that division with Conor McGregor, Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar – that division is so exciting that people are talking about freaking Nik Lentz and Dennis Bermudez. I told Cub and Frankie, ‘Don’t worry about anything you hear with all the Conor McGregor talk and all the other stuff. You worry about Cub Swanson and you worry about Frankie Edgar.’ Believe me, the fact that people are arguing over who should get a title shot in the 145-pound division isn’t a bad thing. It’s a good thing.”


Pat Curran Talks About His Time Off & Fight

Pat Curran (17-4 MMA, 7-1 BFC) spoke about his featherweight title fight with Patricio Freire (17-1 MMA, 5-1 BFC) at Bellator 85 tonight. Freire hasn't fought in 20 months while Curran hasn't fought in nine months thanks to a broken orbital bone.

The event is Bellator's debut on Spike TV after leaving MTV2. Curran won his title from Joe Warren after a tournament win in 2011. Here are highlights:

On their styles: "We're two different styles. He's an aggressive style, and I'm more of a laid-back, conservative, defensive counter-puncher. But in the last year, I've really been working on getting aggressive and being an offensive fighter. So hopefully I can go out there and show what I've learned in the last year. But it's really hard to say."

On being mentally strong: "I thought about the fight so much during my training camp and in my preparations that now I know I'm ready for it. So all the media interviews, everything that goes along with the lead up to a fight, it's just pretty much a job. It's just what you have to do right now."

On what the result will be: "I'm not losing this belt any time soon, and this is the beginning of a new championship. I'm going to be here a while."
