He has even bigger plans now that his city is dealing with the long recovery from the events surrounding this year’s Boston Marathon.
White was in Boston this week with the goal of raising money for The One Fund and helping those affected by the tragedy, and he said he hopes to take a more personal approach — something he wasn’t comfortable doing just yet — when he returns in August.
“People are still hurting,” he told The Boston Globe. “When I say that, I don’t mean physically. People still need time. I got money that we are donating for people, but I’m backing off on the whole meeting people. Even mayor [Tom] Menino is still visiting families.

Last Saturday’s UFC event was probably one of the strangest shows in a long time. It could’ve been the final haunting by the ghost of UFC 151, or it could’ve just been one of those nights where nothing goes as planned. Sometimes these things happen in MMA. We saw multiple fights end early, and Gian Villante and Ovince St. Preux. Villante was poked in the eye, and when the...
Michael “The Voice” Schiavello takes on Dana White in an hour long interview airing May 17th on AXS TV. In this clip Dana talks which fighter he is most uncomfortable around. I bet a 20 year old “Iron Mike” would have made dude uncomfortable.

Makes sense what Dana says here how by not being regulated in New York it is hurting the state more than the UFC. Still having an event in MSG would be a big payday for the company. Hopefully this BS can be worked out sooner rather than later. Thanks to MMA Fighting for the video.

UFC President Dana White knew all too well what he was doing by even throwing out the words that Silva called him directly after UFC 159′s Jones vs Sonnen beating. He was stirring the pot for a potential superfight vs Silva and Jones.
In the post fight presser White wasted no time throwing that gem out there to get the anticipatory juices flowing for a possible Silva vs Jones...
It is a rare occasion when you get an inside look at Anderson Silva. Like Water shows a fascinating backstory behind one of the greatest fights and fighters in UFC history yet still left plenty of unanswered questions about who Anderson Silva really is.
After thrashing Chael Sonnen this past Saturday at UFC 159, reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones tied Tito Ortiz (pictured) for the most successful 205-pound title defenses in Octagon history.
While Jones is still one win away from solidifying his spot as the promotion’s most decorated champion in the division, UFC president Dana White believes Jones has already surpassed...
Dana White confirmed after UFC 159 that with a win over Mark Hunt at UFC 160 Junior Dos Santos will fight Cain Velasquez for the third time. Both fighters are clearly the two best in the division and in my opinion will fight five times in their career. In their first match JDS knocked out Velasquez in just over a minute of the first round in the UFC’s debut on FOX. However...
