The former light-heavyweight champion recently revealed that he would be very interested in facing the long-time middleweight kingpin, even going so far...

Dana White has never been one to mince words. If there is one thing that the UFC prez has always hated it’s fighters that run away from fights. Which is why his support of Ronda Rousey not fighting Cyborg Santos is incredibly odd to say the least.
Dana’s first vlog for UFC 156 is a behind the scenes look at UFC on FOX 6.

As a matter of fact, White is glad the UFC Hall of Famer has joined forces with Spike TV and Bellator MMA, the UFC’s biggest rival, because that means he no longer has to deal with “Captain America” – wait up, don’t call Couture that.

Remember last weekend when UFC president Dana White said he had something planned for middleweight king Anderson Silva that did not involve top contender Chris Weidman?
“We’re waiting on something and want to see if this thing pans out,” White stated. “When we’re ready to announce it, we’ll announce it. [Silva] will defend his title, but it won’t be a super fight...

Alright, let me first introduce this as a new weekly staple here at
HOV-MMA. Every Monday I will write an
editorial piece about what moves me. It
might be an amazing fight recap, interview or news item, but by and large it
will be a forum for me to mouth off about whatever I want. God bless America.
