Here are some of the very best things he exposed.

On UFC’s Battle Island

“It’s gonna be interesting how this thing plays out over the next year or so. which is exactly why the investment into fight island makes so much sense for me. who knows how sports will change after this pandemic… it’s gonna be an interesting year. Fight Island is going to be around for a while. Can’t send location yet.”

Dana White’s preferred KO of all-time

” Hmmm. Due to the fact that I do not like Ben Askren, when I provide you this response everybody is going to believe it’s. And it’s simply not true at all. I do like Ben. It’s hard not to select [Jorge] Masvidal vs. Askren.”

On the greatest battle he never ever got to host

” It’s got ta be Tony [Ferguson vs.] Khabib [Nurmagomedov].”

Who is the very best fighter to never ever win a UFC belt?

” Cowboy [Cerrone], [Urijah] Faber, Wanderlei Silva, [Joseph] Benavidez, [Carlos] Condit … long list.”

How positive are you that Khabib and Tony will battle eventually this year?

“Not very, I’m afraid of what will happen next if we try to make that happen again.”

What rematch does he desire the most?

” I understand everyone is gon na go ‘isn’ t he incredible’ however it’strue I would need to state Conor [McGregor vs.] Khabib … Conor desires that rematch so bad and I would like to see it.”

On seeing battles in a bar

“First of all, ESPN has the broadcast rights for another six years. UFC Fight Pass is fucking awesome and only getting better. You should definitely check that out and a great place to go hang out and watch the fights is to go hang out in bars, we’re at bars all over the world. I have actually never gone to see a fight in a bar… I wanna go see a Conor McGregor level fight at a bar.”

On the hardest part about being UFC president

“I would say the toughest part of the job is making decisions that could affect your employees and your fighters”

On which battles were the greatest disappointment

” Yoel [Romero] vs. Israel [Adesany], [Derrick] Lewis vs Francis [N’gannou] and [Tyron] Woodley vs. [Stephen] Wonderboy [Thompson].”

On what he ‘d alter about the UFC

“I honestly wouldn’t change anything. Every decision we made got us to where we are today… and we’re in a really fucking good place.”

What does he consider the Reebok offer?

“I love the Reebok deal and I believe it helped us get to where we are today. Cleaned up the look of the sport I would do it all over again.”
