Before this season of “The Ultimate Fighter” started UFC President Dana White said that this season had the most brutal knockout he has ever seen in the UFC or an any other promotion. That’s a pretty big statement from a guy who has seen hundreds of knockouts so it was taken with a grain of salt.
After the knockout Hall became the most feared man in the competition according...
When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture put pen to paper last week and joined the ranks of Spike TV, UFC President Dana White said he was happy.
Not happy as in "Good for him," happy as in "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."
As it turns out, the Las Vegas fight boss already...

No fight team had more on the line at UFC 156 than the talented Blackzilians. The squad’s top two superstars were on display: Alistair Overeem (Pictured) returned from a nine-month steroid suspension would have earned a shot at Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight crown with a win over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, while Rashad Evans could have found himself in a tango with middleweight...
In case you missed it last night, UFC President Dana White was Tweeting like crazy about a knockout in the fight on last night’s The Ultimate Fighter on FX.

After losing another championship fight via decision where he thought he had done enough to win, a disappointed Frankie Edgar (Pictured) said it was too soon to decide whether he’d return to the lightweight division where he recently held the title or remain in the featherweight class.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) for “The Answer,” UFC president Dana White saw enough in Saturday’s...
Uriah Hall was everyone’s pick for the guy to beat this season and after episode 3 of The Ultimate Fighter Season 17, he is the guy that everyone will be scared of as well.

When former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight champion Randy Couture signed a multi-year deal with Bellator MMA, UFC president Dana white was elated because that meant he never had to work with the Hall of Famer who, in Dana's words, "stops being a man when his big toes step out of the cage."
So why the animosity?
According to White...

Wow. Just, wow. The roundhouse kick that Uriah Hall planted right on the side of Adam Cella’s head was one of the worst looking KO’s we’ve seen in a long time. The fight was aired during last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 17.
Hall, who has already been impressing UFC brass, showed no hesitation. A mere :06-seconds into the match and he had already connected with...
