That's according to Dana White.

The UFC president spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) after the two-and-a-half-hour season debut, which included 16 live elimination-round fights on FX.

"Going into this thing ... you're always nervous when you do something new and do something different," he told MMAjunkie.com. "We worked long and hard on this show to make sure this came off with no hitches. I'm very happy to with how it came off. It was perfect. Everything went according to plan. There were literally no hiccups whatsoever.

"It's not easy doing this live. Nobody's even done this before, and it could have gone any more perfect."

MMAjunkie.com was on scene for the debut, which took place at the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas. After 14 taped seasons on Spike TV, the UFC's long-running reality series went to a live format with its move to the FOX-owned FX.

He deserved it with that performance as far as I'm concerned.

He had 5 minutes to get it done and all he wanted to do was dryhump the dude's leg. At what point do you realize, "Hey, my gameplan isn't working. Maybe I should try something else so I don't lose this fight?"

oh I'm not questioning the outcome, though he did control the octagon and was the aggressor in a match that featured next to no striking, but I was hoping on seeing what kind of jokes and pranks would be made during the season

I didn't like the first episode at all.

The forced banter between Dana, Faber and Cruz was painful at times, and during the fight it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop for long stretches.

I'm also not a big fan of the new host. Hopefully its better next episode.
