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.”


Ricardo Lamas Hoping For A Title Shot

Ricardo Lamas (12-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) says he is hoping for a title shot after his fight with Erik Koch (13-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC on FOX 6. He is on a three-fight win streak at featherweight after knocking out Matt Grice in his debut, submitting (and getting "Submission of the Night") Cub Swanson ant UFC on FOX 1 and then defeating Hatsu Hioki.

The event takes place at the United Center in Chicago.

On getting a title shot: "Whenever you get a finish and put on a great fight, it gets you closer to that next shot. You could win 10 fights in a row, but if you're not performing and winning every one by decision and it's a boring fight, the UFC really isn't going to give you a shot right away. You've got to prove yourself and really improve every time you go out there."

On how good his fight will be: "Things are going to get really rowdy in our fight. 'm bringing a ton of people. He's right next door, so I'm sure he's bringing a bandwagon of people, too. I think we could definitely have a 'Fight of the Night' right there."

On wanting a top contender to fight: "I wanted a fight that made sense – I've been stuffing up the competition every time, and I really wanted a top contender to fight. The top five guys are either already matched up or injured. But then they came to me with Erik Koch. I just had to sit around and wait for the right fight that made sense."
