Dana White talks UFC 144, Nate Marquardt, hits back the Culinary Union and Floyd Mayweather's manager


UFC President Dana White related to a number of topics in his somewhat traditional pre-fight interview with MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani. White shared thoughts about this weekend’s UFC 144 fight card in Saitama, Japan, Nate Marquardt‘s return to Zuffa, the ongoing war with the Culinary Union, and the most recent “beef” with Floyd Mayweather and his manager.

    “that’s not really how we operate, we don’t customize cards for the place we’re going.”

    Unlike some, I’m a fan of Dana. But seriously, look at the card. are you ****ing kidding me???

    thats not true , try explain why palharis gets a can like massenzio in rio, fukuda gets cantwell.

    the only reason they didnt cut cantwell is because hes a dead men walking now in japan

    Yes, that is some bullshit, there are more Japanese fighters on this card than all the 2011 cards combined, not to talk about the Brasilian cards, Gsp in Montreal and the list goes on and on….

    I hope the Japanese crowd shows up. They have to put Japanese fighters in there. Let them know they care about their fighters, country, and fans. Later they’ll see the more diverse fight cards and be fine with it.
    Hopefully in time they will embrace the UFC as well and start seeing the best Japanese in the UFC instead of maybe flipping them off.

    Look to the top right, there’s a UFC media player running. hold your mouse over it and the time bar comes up click stop and your main player will work much better. It kills me too. It usually depends on how much bandwidth you have not necessarily your pc though.

    Yeah, and on a somewhat related note given the typical audience I notice its always ring girls and never ring boys.
