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.”


Matt Hughes Doesn’t Want To Be UFC’s Policeman

Matt Hughes, Dana White and UFC General Counsel Lawrence Epstein recently spoke about Hughes's new position with the UFC. Here are the highlights…

Matt Hughes on His New Position With The UFC: "The first thing I'd say is, I'm not considered a policeman and I don't consider myself a policeman. I see myself as more of a liaison. We're going to use the Jones incident, where he wouldn't take the fight against Chael. After digesting all the facts, maybe I'd go to Jones and say, 'Hey, I think you need to take this fight. There's nothing wrong with taking this fight.' Or I could look at all the facts and say, 'He's got a point here. If it was me, I wouldn't take the fight.' So that's going to be my role: Go into a situation, look at the facts, talk to the parties and come up with my conclusion."

UFC General Counsel Lawrence Epstein Added the Following on Hughes' Job: "He's going to be the mentor to all of the 400-plus UFC athletes that are with us and that will come in the future," Epstein said. "He comes with a very unique set of experiences. He's obviously been at the highest levels of our sport, being a champion. He understands what it takes to go from a virtually unknown person to someone who's incredibly famous, and also the challenges that come along with it. He's going to be providing that experience to our athletes."

Dana White On Hughes' Job: "His job is going to be to come to events, start to meet these guys, immerse himself back into the sport watching these guys and knowing these guys," White said. "Hughes is going to help dive in and create relationships."
