The Ultimate Fighter 18

The Ultimate Fighter 18: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate filming is going “bad,” according to UFC president Dana White. “It’s going exactly the way you’d expect it to be going, bad,” said White on Thursday following the UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson media day in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was originally supposed to coach opposite...

Dana White’s reaction to the Fitch/Burkman fight was pretty interesting.

No bashing, no snide remarks, just a simple observation full of respect to Josh Burkman and cutting down Mazzagatti. Ok, so it wasn’t a completely vitriol-free tweet, Mazzagatti took one on the chin, but what matters here is the fact that Dana was giving respect to the fighters, that’s something I’m happy about. And let’s be honest here, Mazzagatti was just standing there...

Dana White Post-Fight Scrum

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. (Roy Nelson’s) got a hell of a chin, and can knock people out, and he ain’t going to be winning any f@$%king spelling bees any time soon. Okay? Not the smartest man you will ever meet.” Dana White

Dana White Feels No Vindication Following Jon Fitch’s Defeat

Most thought UFC president Dana White couldn’t wait to cut Jon Fitch (pictured) after he was dominated by Demian Maia at UFC 156 because White was still holding a grudge against Fitch for their video game beef not too many moons ago. However, White claimed it was strictly a business decision to release the former welterweight top contender since the 35-year-old had entered ...

Anthony Pettis Out As UFC 163 Headliner

UFC President Dana White posted a tweet earlier today breaking news that Anthony "Showtime" Pettis has injured his knee and will no longer face reigning champion Jose Aldo for the featherweight title. Pettis hurt his knee, Korean Zombie will now face Jose Aldo for the title on the Aug card in Rio Brazil. -- Dana White (@danawhite) June 14, 2013 Chan Sung Jung aka "...

UFC Prez Dana White Rips MMA Ref Steve Mazzagatti in Profanity Laced Tirade

Dana White blasts Steve Mazzagatti's handling of Jon Fitch vs Josh Burkman with a 9 minute f-bomb laced rant that got to that mark because Ariel Helwani likes to make himself part of the... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Dana White on Roy Nelson: ‘Somebody’s Not Telling the Truth’

If UFC 161 marked Roy Nelson’s (pictured) Octagon finale, he sure went out with a bang. Unfortunately for “Big Country,” he was the one who got blasted by Stipe Miocic. The good news for Nelson is that he set a UFC record on Saturday. The bad news is it was because he is now the only man to endure 437 significant strikes without being knocked out. However, it appears Nelson’s...

The UFC’s Million-Dollar Female Star

Ronda Rousey is the first female UFC champ and highest paid female UFC fighter — a milestone in athletics and sponsorships for female MMA. It wasn’t too long ago that UFC President Dana White said women would never fight in the UFC. Dana is now eating his words as Ronda pulls in a new fan base to the most expensive ticket in sports — 40% of UFC tickets are now being bought...

Dana White’s reaction to the Fitch/Burkman fight

Props to Dana for giving props to Josh Burkman

Despite loss at UFC 161 and plenty of fighting with the boss, Dana White wants Roy Nelson back.

Last night Roy Nelson set a UFC record for the most punches absorbed without ever being TKOd or KOd. That’s absolutely wild considering Nelson’s relatively short time in the Octagon. Nelson has taken 487 punches to the head and now, it must be said, maybe it’s affected his decision making progress. Apparently Roy turned down Dana White and Joe Silva’s offer of a newer, more...

Dana White: Anthony Pettis Still in Line for UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Titles

Anthony Pettis (pictured) was guaranteed a UFC lightweight title fight after unleashing his infamous “Showtime Kick” on Benson Henderson to capture the WEC 155-pound crown in December 2010. Fast forward nearly three years and Pettis has still not competed for UFC gold. First, then-champ Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard fought to a draw and an immediate rematch was arranged. Pettis...

Krause, Stout and Jordan Win Fight Bonuses at UFC 161

After a mundane night of MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Sam Stout (pictured) and Shawn Jordan each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson.” James Krause doubled dipped and took home two bonus checks.  On a night where there was a record-tying nine decisions in 11 scraps, the only bonus check up for...

UFC 164: Henderson vs. Grant Tickets on Sale Friday, June 21st
