Found September 01, 2013 on The Flying Knee MMA:
PLAYERS: Dana White
The UFC 164 PPV fight card left fans with an array of violent stoppages, a surprising number of which came in the third round of action. Yet while the majority of the bouts were entertaining affairs, there were a couple of duds including the final Facebook prelim between debuting heavyweights Soa Palelei and Nikita Krylov. The two heavyweights engaged actively for the first three minutes of the bout, where Palelei was in control. Then it appeared that the Australian completely lost his stamina and would spend the remainder of the bout laying on the Ukrainian and expending minimal energy. The UFC president appeared embarrassed by that performance and was highly critical about both competitors’ performances. “You don’t want to hear my thoughts on that fight,” UFC President Dana White said to media members following the PPV event. “That fight was embarrassing.That looked like a toughman fight” White was particularly irritated by the stamina issues and the sloppy performance, stating th...

Dana White post UFC 164 scrum (Video)

Dana's post event and presser scrums are the hottest thing going right now. This one covers just about all of the fallout from 164 and even goes into more about some upcoming fights and events that will close out 2013. And as always, much love to Dana for never shutting up about the sport we love, and even throwing in an expletive or ten to make sure we're still listening.

Dana White delivers impassioned speech to TUF 18 contestants

Season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter is days away and UFC President Dana White takes center stage to encourage the thirty-two contestants to leave everything they have in the Octagon. Sounds obvious, however it is very important advice because the consequence of losing in the first episode is a short lived flash of fame on a reality show and a potential journey into obscurity. Who...

Tito Ortiz likens Dana White to a slave owner, Dana fires back.

Oh, Tito. Slaves don’t make millions of dollars over a decade-long career in the UFC, didn’t you know that? Well, that’s Tito logic for you, he tries to make a good point then utterly screws it up with a strange slavery comment. Tito: you live in a mansion, man. I thought slavery was over a long time ago. It’s just one of those things that you can’t trust a word that the...

Dana White: Benson Henderson Facing Lengthy Wait for Another UFC Title Fight

Despite owning a perfect 7-0 UFC record, which included three straight title defenses, prior to entering Saturday’s rematch with Anthony Pettis, now-former lightweight king Benson Henderson (pictured) will have to wait his turn before sniffing another championship affair. And if Pettis’ reign atop the 155-pound division is an extended one, Henderson’s wait will only be that...

Dana White: Anthony Pettis Not Ready for UFC Pound-for-Pound Ranking

The only thing more subjective than the divisional UFC Fighter Rankings is the pound-for-pound UFC Fighter Rankings. Unless athletes hop divisions or collide at catchweights to face each other, how can one possibly determine which heavier/lighter fighter is better than the other? Nonetheless, the discussion came up Saturday night after Anthony Pettis (pictured) submitted Benson Henderson...

UFC News: Dana White Says Anthony Pettis Injured His Knee In His Title Win Against Benson Henderson

Newly crowned UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis called out UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo after his win over Benson Henderson at UFC 164 last night. It looks like the brakes need to be pumped a little bit on that for now. During the UFC 164 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White said that Pettis’s knee popped during the fight. “Anthony’s knee popped...

Josh Barnett wins UFC 164 return over Frank Mir

Josh Barnett returned to the UFC for the first time in 11 years at UFC 164. Barnett said he was coming to defend his title and while there was no title on the line he did make a statement at the expense of Frank Mir.

Dana White post UFC 164 scrum: Talks Couture, Mir, Barnett and more.

Now that the dust is finally settling on the whirlwind of action we saw at UFC 164, it’s time to settle down and hear what the President of the UFC has to say about all that went down. As always, these post-fight scrums must be seen as a perfect bookend to a night of fights. The most interesting parts come with the Barnett/Mir situations, as well as Ryan Couture, who may or may...

Dana White: Anthony Pettis Already Has Advantage Over Jose Aldo

Sometimes, managers should just simply stick to managing – this according to UFC president Dana White. Seconds after Anthony Pettis captured the lightweight crown by submitting Benson Henderson at UFC 164, he publicly requested a tango with reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured). “Jose Aldo we’ve got some unfinished business. Your belt or my belt,” Pettis confidently...

Frank Mir Faces Uncertain Future with UFC

To say Frank Mir (pictured) was upset with how Saturday’s fight against Josh Barnett concluded would be an understatement. UFC president Dana White even felt the stoppage was premature. However, no matter which way you slice or dice the controversial ending, the defeat marks three in a row for the former two-time UFC heavyweight champion. While White didn’t agree with the stoppage...

Josh Barnett discusses this Mir finish and his return to the UFC.

Mir, Barnett – it was a great example of why heavyweight fights can be great in MMA. Unfortunately, it was marred by a supposed early stoppage which has everyone giving their 2 cents on the situation. I will be above this and hold my opinion. Alright, alright just kidding; for the record I think the stoppage last night between Barnett and Mir was fine, but apparently Mir, Dana...
