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.”
Vitor Belfort appeared on Fuel TV's post-fight show for UFC on FX 7 following his knockout victory over Michael Bisping. Belfort discussed his win and his insults toward Chael Sonnen who he called a clown and said should get out of the way so he could fight Jon Jones in a rematch instead:
Vitor Belfort on his win: "It's amazing. I thank god every day for my life that I have. I thank Jesus for the strength to keep doing this for 17 years. I'm the only guy from my era and I'm still doing it. Now I'm looking for bigger challenges. I thank my coaches, the Blackzilians, my wife and my kids. Without my family I wouldn't be able to do what I do."
Belfort on predicting the win at the weigh-in: "That's what the lord told me. I'm a victor, not a victim. That's something I live for. I challenge people - the toughest battle is not in the Octagon, it's outside the Octagon - to live in your principles, with morals and integrity. I tell people to fight with faith. My god has a name and a fingerprint. You live by what you preach. Don't be a hypocrite. Have a moral stand and that's what I bring."
Belfort on his comments on Chael Sonnen: "[Sonnen] is a clown. Get out. Get out of the way. He just got knocked out pretty bad by Anderson Silva then he fights Jon Jones. He doesn't deserve the reality show. Let me fight - real champion versus real champion. I know he's a good athlete, but he needs to go to the back of the line. Let me fight the rematch."
