Dana White UFC

Despite landing a watershed broadcast deal with FOX in 2011, the past couple of years have not been too friendly to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The injury bug has done a number on several cards – most recently UFC 151, which forced UFC president Dana White (Pictured) to cancel his first event since taking over the company in 2001.

Are the fighters taking advantage of the free health insurance the UFC is offering and bowing out of scraps they would have taken otherwise? Is Octagon action getting stale? Are the cards too watered down because of the volume of events the promotion is now pumping out?

Those are just a few questions that have come across White’s desk over the last year. As the promotion enters UFC 152 fight week, its first card since UFC 151′s debacle, White has released a video thanking his hardcore fanboys for their loyalty.

“This if for u the REAL fans. We love u guys!!!” White tweeted Monday accompanied with the following video.
