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.”


Cerrone Hopes Pettis Lives Up To The Hype

Donald Cerrone recently spoke about this weekend's fight with Anthony Pettis. Here are the highlights…

On Wanting to Fight More: "I was talking to my team about that today. I said, 'You think they'd get mad if I took one at 170 (pounds) or something, just trying to fill one in there?' They said, 'No, you're not gonna do that.' So I don't know. I'd gladly take (a fight before the title shot) – but I don't know how it will work out."

On The Fight With Pettis being a Long Time Coming: "Our managers were trying to work it out back in the WEC days," he said. "And when he came (to the UFC) to fight Clay (Guida), I was trying to rally for that fight. The Melvin (Guillard) fight, I was supposed to fight him there, but his shoulder got hurt. There was just a lot of spots along the way it was supposed to happen and it just never happened. Was it because of him ducking me? That could just be me talking s---. With him being injured, it's just the way it is. But now here we are."

On The Fight Itself: "I'm going to go out there and fight my ass off. That's just what I do," he said. "The pressure and the hype of a fight doesn't matter to me. Me getting a 'W' and going out there and fighting the style I do, it's an exciting style. I just go in your face and nonstop. As far as living up to the hype, I hope Anthony lives up to the hype. I plan on going out there with everything I've got and saving nothing."
