The full audio of Dana White's comments about Chope's release can be seen above or over at MMAFighting, and here are a few choice quotes:
"It seems like a great guy and he's got his stuff together, but a few years ago he didn't sound like such a great guy," White said. "You put your hands on your girlfriend or your wife and you're accused of it. You beat her three times or whatever you did, that's a tough one to overcome."
"Believe me, if there is anybody on this planet into giving second chances and we all make mistakes, we're all human beings ... we will give guys second chances, but first of all, we've got sponsorship partners, we have television partners, and the list goes on and on. As tolerant as I may be, some of our partners may not."
