Fedor Wanted Dana To Build Him An Arena!
(fightlinker.com)
You’ll remember a few weeks back, Five Ounces of Pain had an interview with Fedor manager Vadim Finkelstein where Vadim claimed there were no crazy demands for Russian events or Russian fighters bundled into a Fedor contract. Now here’s Dana directly contradicting him: “When I first met with these guys, I was with them in the U.K.,” said White. “They said to me, ‘Here’s what we want to do. My brother is the biggest rock concert promoter over there so here’s what we want. We want you to build an arena in Russia.’ I said, ‘Time out. I’m not looking to build arenas.’”

"TUF" outcast Gabe Ruediger looks for fresh start at Gladiator Challenge
(mmajunkie.com)
Gabe Ruediger sat in his dressing room inside the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, several minutes away from his first fight in eight months, and his mind raced. "I'm saying to myself, 'Why am I even here?'" Ruediger said. "I'm asking my corner man, 'Do you think I can win?' He said, 'I can't tell you that. Only you can decide.'" In the previous 16 months, Ruediger had become one of the most controversial fighters throughout mixed martial arts, from his infamous appearance on the fifth season of "The Ultimate Fighter" to a battle with the California State Athletic Commission to surgery that fused vertebrae in his neck. He prepared for the August 2008 matchup with Justin Wilcox in Fighting 4 Kidz hoping for a new beginning, but the decision loss could've threatened his career.

Nate Diaz feels like he whooped Clay Guida’s ass
(mmamania.com)
“I know I lost the decision in the minds of the judges but I really felt I was whooping his ass the whole fight and he was just holding me. Before the fight people were asking me about his pace and if I would be able to keep up with it. I felt he couldn’t keep up with my pace and that’s why he was trying to slow things down by holding on and not trying anything. I even gave him my back so he would try to do something besides hugging me. A couple of times I looked at the ref to ask him if he wanted us to fight or what? Sorry I didn’t listen to my corner and stand with him more but I never thought he would be so happy to just stall like that.”

Dana White Talks P4P & Superfights
(mmaweekly.com)
"I still wouldn't call (St. Pierre) pound-for pound the best in the world. But I would say, yea, he's No. 2. No doubt about it," said the high profile president of the UFC. "Anderson Silva has been annihilating everybody for a long time. Georges has some work to do now. "If Georges takes out Thiago Alves, he's on his way," added White. "The pound-for-pound to me, I would say Georges St. Pierre would be neck-and-neck with Anderson had he not lost to Matt Serra."

Dana White's UFC 94 Video Blog - 1/31/09
(youtube.com)
last Dana's blog. Interesting to see how out of proportion the vaseline thing goes, we can see Liddell talking to Dana and then Dana spoke to Rashad and the Crow and was telling that " the cornerman was putting vaseline ALL OVER the back of GSP " what a joke, i guess Liddell lost a **** load of cash on BJ !! I am sure Dana took a close look at this by now and realized how ridiculous the ALL OVER THE BACK sound.

(sportsillustrated.cnn.com)
Less than two days removed from his successful welterweight title defense, Georges St. Pierre is already in the throes of another battle. Only, this one revolves around Vaseline. B.J. Penn's corner alleges St. Pierre's trainers greased his back in between rounds, and SI.com learned earlier today that Penn's camp plans to file a formal complaint with Nevada State Athletic Commission. St. Pierre sat down with SI.com to tell his side of the controversy, discuss his scientific gameplan and his thoughts on B.J. Penn.
