On the rumor floated by MiddleEasy that he might be replaced by Scott Coker next year:
“I have never even seen that site. That’s not true."
On UFC vs. Bellator fighters:
“The UFC has been around for a long time so there is an entrenched belief that the best fighters are in UFC. They are not. Many of the best fighters are fighting in Bellator. I think Michael Chandler is the best lightweight on Earth and he beats every other lightweight in the world. If you had every 145-pounder in the world fight, Pat Curran and Jose Aldo would be the last two standing. This is a marathon, not a sprint. It will just take time, but we will get there.”
On the compensation packages Viacom affords Bellator, vs. those available from the UFC:
“The differences are almost all across the board, positive. Marketing. production, public relations. It is an enormous powerful machine with incredible reach. What we do through a social media perspective is through the roof. If you race NASCAR, the better machine you have, the faster you are going to go, and Viacom gives us that faster machine.”
