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.”


Bisping Talks #1 Contender’s Bout With Belfort

Michael Bisping recently spoke about his bout with Vitor Belfort this weekend. Here are the highlights…

On Fighting For a Title Shot: "I've been in No. 1 contender matchups before, and I lost them. But I truly believe those things happened for a reason. I'm certainly a better fighter than I was back then. Maybe if I had won those fights and fought for the title back then, I would have lost. Now I won't."

On Why He is a Better Fighter Now: "Experience has taught me to focus on what I'm going to do and not what my opponent is going to do," Bisping said. "I used to do that early on my UFC career, and you don't perform to the best of your ability. So for this fight, I've worked hard on my boxing, on my kickboxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu and just tried to take my skill set to another level. I've done that. I'm certainly physically better than I've ever been, mentally better than I've ever been. My skill set is there."

Is He Looking Past Vitor Belfort?: "I'd be a fool to look past Vitor Belfort," Bisping said. "He's a very, very tough opponent. If I beat him, I do get to fight Anderson, but I can't think about that right now. I'm just thinking about Vitor."

On His Goal: "I'm ready for this fight," Bisping said. "Every minute of every round, I'm going to be trying to finish Vitor. I've got more desire in my heart and will to win than any man in this world. I plan on winning on Saturday night, and I plan on taking the title from Anderson later this year."
