As a former Boston resident, Dana White admits it's a struggle for him to not talk about this past week's Boston Marathon bombings. But the UFC president is sure of one thing: He's going to try and do something to help those suffering.

"I have a hard time talking about this in public because if I really do talk about it, I'm going to come off like a psycho," White said at Saturday's post-UFC on FOX 7 press conference. "I've really limited talking about it, but I'm going to Boston on Saturday. After [UFC 159], I'm jumping on a plane and flying to Boston, and I'm actually going to go visit some people that were affected by this horrible event."

Things like this make it hard to keep thinking Dana is kind of a dick! Got to love how generous he is with his money!
