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.”
On Fuel TV's Post-Fight show for UFC on FX 7, Chael Sonnen who was serving as an analyst responded to Vitor Belfort's post-fight interviews. Belfort referred to Sonnen as a clown and asked the UFC to give him a shot at Jon Jones instead. Here is what Sonnen had to say:
Sonnen's response to Belfort: "Let me be really clear and speak directly to you Vitor. You have been telling the world that you want to meet Jesus and I will gladly arrange that travel, but first I am going to get rid of Jon Jones, then you are next. Vitor, I accept. Don't make any mistake about that. You have called me out twice now."
Sonnen's answer about Belfort calling for him to get out of the way of his rematch with Jon Jones: "I'm really confused as to what's going on? We're not in the same weight class. I don't know if he knows he's not the champion. I keep hearing him say champion versus the champion. He keeps saying to move out of the way. I wouldn't tell somebody to move out of the way, but I'd damn sure knock them out of the way. And Vitor, that's one thing you're not going to be able to do."
