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.”

Ildemar Alcantara spoke last night following his Submission of the Night victory over Wagner Prado at UFC on F/X 7. Check out the highlights:

On a potential weight drop: "I actually want to fight the best, and that's why I'm here. But I intend to fight in the 170-pound class. ... I intend to do the next fight at 170."

On being nervous for the early part of the fight: "I did feel a little bit of the jitters in the beginning. I was kind of nervous, I'd say, but then once I started getting into it, (I was OK)."

On his win: "It's very, very important to fight in an event such as UFC. To be able to start with a submission, that's even better...When I walked in, I felt those jitters. I'm at the UFC. I got very happy to be in the UFC, and I'm even happier that I made bonus money. I never thought that in my debut, it wouldn't only be my right foot forward – it was both feet forward, so I'm really, really happy. I've lost my words, but I really say thank you."
