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.”

Jorge Santiago (25-10 MMA, 1-4 UFC) will replace Justin Edwards (8-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) against Gunnar Nelson (10-0-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in a welterweight bout at UFC on FUEL TV 7. Edwards suffered an injury but the extent was unknown.

The event takes place on February 16 at London's Wembley Arena. The main card is on FUEL TV after preliminary fights on Facebook. Nelson vs Santiago will be on the main card.

He returned to the UFC in 2011 before back-to-back losses to Brian Stann and Demian Maia. He then had back-to-back first round wins in TItan FC over Leonardo Pecanha and Justin Guthrie.
