Dana White: I will not walk away from MMAPosted on September 16, 2012, 02:12 PM by Anton Gurevich
Dana White shared thoughts about the recent chain of events in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, from the cancelled card in Las Vegas, Nevada, to Jose Aldo's withdrawal from the long-anticipated encounter with Frankie Edgar in Brazil. White declared he's committed to the sport, and not even considering the possibility of announcing "retirement".
To prove he still has what it takes to go toe-to-toe with competitors, UFC President ridiculed Bellator's upcoming reality show on Spike TV. White accused Bjorn Rebney's promotion of copying the Ultimate Fighting Championship product, claiming that Bellator have no tools to catch-up with the UFC. To sum things up, Uncle Dana promised that the Ultimate Fighting Championship will shock the world again in two years time.

"The past month has been a [expletive]," White told MMAjunkie.com. "Canceling our first event and then all the stuff going on in Brazil. But I don't ever think about walking away.
"The way that I look at this thing is I made a commitment, and I'm committed to this. I know what we can do and the things that we're working on – and this might sound f------ egotistical as hell, but it's what I believe – I believe that if I walk away from this thing, I believe it won't happen. I love this s---."
"That Meniere's thing put me down for like four days, and that's it. I've been cranking ever since. I won't let it. … It ain't going to stop me. Nothing's going to stop me."
"We're going to shock the world again in the next two years. When you see these other organizations pop up, they basically copy everything that we do. Now the talk is that Bellator is going to do a reality show. Wonder what that reality show is going to look like and what it's going to be like? Because they have so much f------ fantastic original programming on Spike TV. I can just imagine what they came up with. But they're going to be going in one direction, the copy-the-UFC direction, and then we're shaking s--- up. We're going to change how everything works again in the next two years."
