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.”


Troeng Looking Forward To Representing Sweden

TUF 17 contestant Tor Troeng recently spoke about being on the show and more. Check out the highlights:

On his first fights in MMA, against the likes of Mamed Khalidov & Lucio Linharet: "I had really tough fights in the beginning. I fought a lot of tough guys. I just wanted to fight. I didn't care who I fought or anything. I didn't have a manager or anything set up for me. I just took every fight I got and went from there."

On being introduced to MMA at 16: "We didn't have MMA in Sweden. When it came, I wanted to try it out. I really didn't know what it was. No one did. I just started training, and I was hooked."

On his early career vs. where he is now: "I just wanted to fight, and I would get a phone call and go fight...I think I train more seriously now," Troeng said. "I have a manager, and I have a team around me to help me with everything I need. Now I feel like I'm doing it for real. Before, I was training seven or eight sessions a week. Yeah, I trained hard, but not as hard as I needed. Then I started for real."

On not being interested in TUF initially: "At first, I didn't want to go. I wanted to fight. I didn't want to watch the show, but I had a lot of friends fighting there, so I went and watched it. I think it was one of the best MMA experiences I've enjoyed. The crowd was so great. The Swedish MMA fans, they know MMA. They weren't just cheering for the home fighter. They know about technical aspects of MMA, too, and I think they appreciate it."

On representing his homeland: "Since I'm the first guy from the north of Sweden, I kind of represent that part of Sweden. I consider myself a hard-working guy, I've developed a lot since the beginning of my career. I'm confident if I fought some of those guys again, things would be different."
