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.”


Nick Diaz Made The Most Of His Time Off

Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC) says he made the most of his time off due to a drug suspension for a post-fight drug test failure. He will return to face welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) at UFC 158. The two were originally set to fight at UFC 137 but Diaz skipped two pre-fight press conferences and was pulled from the card. He then later lost an interim title fight to Carlos Condit at UFC 143, which is where he was suspended for marijuana. Here are highlights:

On being healed up in his time off: "I don't feel I've ever been able to make it to 100 percent leading up to a fight. All of these fights I've had in the last couple years have all been pretty back to back. I don't feel like I've ever been 100 percent and healed up before I started my next training (camp) for the next fight. ... It's nice to kind of heal up for a while and take a step back and see what's what."

On getting a title fight: "I didn't think I'd be getting this fight. I figured they'd probably stick me with some hard fights for a while and I'd have to work my way back to the fights I want and the things I want. They way I looked at it, I needed some time to see things out. … But I'm a fighter, and you if you give me the right fight, I'm going to be fighting."

On his future: "I'm just taking it one fight at a time."
