Quotes from today's live Facebook chat with UFC President Dana White
UFC President Dana White participated in a live Facebook chat via Metro PCS. Here are some of the highlights of that call, and some are very interesting topics! |
Dana White: Iím into womenís MMA now. Weíll see what happens.
Dana White: Of course weíre going to resign Anderson Silva after the last fight on his contract. We will resign Anderson Silva and soon.
Dana White: We tried to get Fedor and he is absolutely retired. He wonít fight anymore.
Dana White: I guarantee you Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones will absolutely happen.
Dana White: Andrei Arlovski will have to beat someone really good to get back to the UFC.
Dana White: The 185 pound division is very exciting right now. I donít know whoís next for Anderson yet. Weíre waiting because he possibly wants to fight Georges St. Pierre. Weíll see what happens.
Dana White: To say GSP vs Anderson Silva doesnít make sense, doesnít make sense. Anderson Silva can fight Georges St. Pierre and Jon Jones. They both make sense.
Dana White: Weíre doing 12 events in Brazil next year. I wish we could do Brazil every weekend. Itís Werdum and Big Nog the coaches for season two in Brazil.
Dana White: I donít know what Mousasiís deal is with Strikeforce.
Dana White: Yes, weíre definitely coming back to Boston. Iíve been working on that lately. Weíll be coming back in 2013.
Dana White: Weíre gonna do it (Joe Roganís podcast) someday.
Dana White: Weíve talked about Tyrone Spong. Weíll see what happens.
Dana White: The first day of filming was interesting with TUF between Jones and Sonnen.
Dana White: I called Dan Henderson the day before yesterday. He doesnít even know how his knee feels yet or if itís 100 percent yet. Heís not healthy yet.
Dana White: Anything is possible if Ronda and Cyborg end up coming to the UFC (coaching TUF)
Dana White: I donít think Jon Jones has any interest in going to heavyweight right now.
Dana White: UFC on Fox 5 sold out already. Iím very excited for it.
Dana White: Nick Diaz has to get through his suspension and get relicensed before we think about who heís fighting or what heís doing.
Dana White: Irish event in 2014 I promise.
Dana White: Yes Fedor is one of the greatest heavyweights ever. Is he one of the greatest mixed martial artists ever? Youíre out of your mind.
Dana White: Weíve got a fight planned for Cowboy Stadium but itís not Jon Jones vs Chael.
Dana White: Ariel Helwani is a pain in the ass. Heís always texting me asking me shit.
Dana White: TUF Mexico is coming soon. Weíre working on Mexico hard.
Dana White: Yes weíre scouting Indian talent.
Dana White: 170 and 155 are the deepest divisions right now.
Dana White: Yeah I love Columbus. It was always a great city for us. Weíll come back soon.
Dana White: Yes Bonnar will be retiring now.
Jon Jones: I killed Chael in picking my team.
Jon Jones: Chael is not too bad. I thought he was gonna be all trash talk but heís been pretty decent and pretty classy. Itís been a great show.
Jon Jones: I got Frank Mir for jiu jitsu, Bowman, Jon Woods, Bubba Jenkins
Jon Jones: I donít hate Chael any more. Heís been okay. Maybe heís setting me up for later.
Jon Jones rolls his eyes and points to Dana when he brings up Jones vs Anderson Silva
Jon Jones: I want to beat Chael at his own game. I want to take him down and pound him out. If he decides to stand up, Iíll kickbox the snot out of him.
Jon Jones: Iíll definitely move up to heavyweight probably around the end of 2013. Iíve got a nutritionist so my weight cuts have been easier. I walk around thinner.
Jon Jones: Iím not disappointed I didnít get the Dan Henderson fight. I think itís inevitable. Heís one of the greatest fighters in history. Hopefully I defeat Chael, defeat Dan Henderson and who knows what happens after that.
Dana White: Once I get my ear thing sorted out, Iíll do the video blogs again. I havenít been in the mood lately.
Jon Jones: GSP vs Anderson Silva will definitely be one of the greatest fights of all time. GSP has all the tools to beat Anderson SIlva. he has the wisdom on the feet and heís got one of the fastest double legs with the best timing in MMA. Anderson is on the level of greatness.
Jon Jones: GSP is a winner and Carlos is on my team right now. Heís working extremely hard to beat GSP. Heís a champion from WEC and UFC. Heís just a champion. I have no comment on who I think will win it.
Dana White: I highly doubt weíll see Batista in the UFC.
Dana White: We plan on bringing Eddie Alvarez to the UFC. Weíll see what happens.
Jon Jones: I like Gustafsson.
Dana White: How can you say Anderson Silva would duck anybody (reference two Weidman). Believe me, he ainít ducking anybody.
Jon Jones: I still donít like Dana. It was very hard to reconcile. (joking)
Dana White: Fabio Maldonado is doing better. Heís tough.
Jon Jones: Cormier is a better wrestler than me but itís not a wrestling match.
Chael Sonnen: Iím absolutely strong enough to hold a stadium show. I was jealous of St. Pierre and Shields 55,000 in Toronto.
Chael Sonnen: I did not attend Anderson Silvaís barbecue
Chael Sonnen: I think Jonís a pretty good guy.
Chael Sonnen: The chicken Jones pizza is for sale right now in West Lynn. Itís actually quite delicious
Chael Sonnen: I havenít spoke to Dan since the fight got accepted. Yes I talked my way into this fight but the word I used was ďyesĒ by accepting it. There arenít many people that want to fight Jones other than me.
Some interesting quotes from Dana, Jones and Sonnen. Anyone else surprised that Jones says he likes sonnen all of a sudden? I think we are going to see just how strong Jones mental game is duirng the full season of TUF not just one film session.
