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.”


Guymon Talks About The Early Days Of Bellator

Mike "Joker" Guymon (14-5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) talked about the early days of Bellator and a meeting he had with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney when he gave him advice on the promotion. He was running Tapout at the time. He will meet Savant Young (10-9 MMA, 0-0 BFC) in a Spike.com preliminary fight for Bellator 85, before the main card on Spike TV. Here are highlights:

On the initial meeting: "I meet Bjorn, and he's like, 'I have this idea. Tournament style and tournament based. What do you think? What do you think I should do?' We had this huge long talk, and to see him take it from a thought, an idea, and turn it into a working platform and then a platform that's getting a lot of steam and recognition with great fighters, it's so cool to see. It puts a smile on my face."

On fighting close to home: "It's always a mixed bag (fighting close to home). It's always great to fight close to home, and it's such a great feeling. But at the same time, you have added pressure to you. For me, this one has even more pressure [than] when I fought at UFC 121 at the Honda Center. That sucked because I fought in my hometown in the biggest of all stages and grounds and lost because – one of the big factors in that fight was the medications I'm on. I was so flat and not performing.

On how he'll be fighting: "This time here, I know how to ween off the medications. Now it's going to be a full 100 percent me. So now, I really need to answer these expectations."
