PLAYERS: Dana White
Will the UFC be brought into the Biogenesis drama? UFC president Dana White is hoping that is not the case. He has addressed the possibility, though, after a recent report claimed that UFC athletes were among those connected to the defunct South Florida clinic that has been accused of providing performance-enhancing drugs to players. "Obviously, it's an athletic commission issue, but it's just one of those things," White said, according to USA Today. "It's just another (expletive) headache I don't need." No MMA athletes have been named, but White seems interested in catching up on the issue. According to the story, after Saturday night's UFC on FOX 8 event, White asked reporters questions about Biogenesis and the kind of drugs it alleged supplied athletes. "If a guy signs a contract with me and then comes out on a list, it's not going to be good," he told the site. "It's going to suck." According to the report, White has taken a "hard line on the use of prescribed testosterone, going so far as to say he'd like to stamp out the issuing of therapeutic use exemptions by state athletic commissions to compete on TRT." He pointed out that the role of state athletic commissions that can conduct fight-night, or even outside of competition, testing in the sport. "If you're one of the big guys, you're getting tested," White told the site. "And if you're remotely suspicious, you're getting tested. It's the government. It's how they make their money. They bust these guys on this stuff. That's how they get paid. That's what they're there to do. They want to catch people. Trust me. "Athletic commissions aren't doing me any favors at all, and who is a bigger pain in the ass to the athletic commission than me? All I do is talk about their ... judges and referees."

Dana White: Jake Ellenberger Froze Under Pressure

The spotlight was burning white hot Saturday night when Jake Ellenberger (pictured) took center stage against fellow up-and-coming welterweight Rory MacDonald.

  According to MMA Mania, the UFC signed Benjamin Brinsa.  Brinsa is a welterweight from Germany, who goes by the nickname “The Hooligan”.  His MMA record is 13-0 including 4 KOs and 7 submissions.  These sound like the type of attributes that Dana White would love to have in the UFC, but there is a small issue that hovers above “The Hooligan”: his alleged ties to Neo...

Dana White: ‘Vitor Belfort is Out of His Mind’

A couple of weeks ago, UFC president Dana White said the promotion was trying to arrange a tango between Vitor Belfort (pictured) and Tim Kennedy.

Belfort’s reported decision to decline a bout with Kennedy...

Nick Diaz No Closer to UFC Return

Former UFC welterweight top contender Nick Diaz (pictured) is retired, and no matter what the rumor mill is trying to conjure up, the 29-year-old is no closer to returning to the Octagon today than he was when he re-retired after losing to 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre at UFC 158. There was a report earlier this month that Diaz’s longtime coach, Cesar Gracie, said the UFC recently...

Dana White was not impressed with Rory MacDonald’s performance against Jake Ellenberger.

Sorry, but with all the GSP ties I have to say: “Dana is naht emprezzed with your pear-fore-mance.” Many thought that the fight between Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger sucked. There’s no better way to say it, I’m afraid. But it was fairly obvious to see that when Rory MacDonald fights better talent, he doesn’t really have that killer instinct or want to finish the fight...
