Dana White: 'I used to beat the living s--t out of Tito Ortiz'
Dana White might be (mostly) done with the boxing business, but that doesn't mean he doesn't still love the sport. White treated the media on Wednesday to a screening of his new boxing reality show 'The Fighters', which will air on the Discovery Channel on January 23rd. After the screening, however, White took questions from the media and addressed an old incident with former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz.
Michael Johnson replaces Ross Pearson, meets Melvin Guillard at UFC Fight Night 37
Michael Johnson (14-8 MMA, 6-4 UFC) continues to volunteer for every lightweight fight available, and this time, the UFC granted his wish.
UFC officials today announced that Johnson has replaced an injured Ross Pearson (15-6 MMA, 7-3 UFC) and will meet former Blackzilians teammate Melvin Guillard (31-12-2 MMA, 12-8 UFC) in the co-main event of March’s UFC Fight Night 37 event.
Featuring a light heavyweight fight between Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa in the night’s headliner, UFC Fight Night 37 takes place March 8 at London’s O2 Arena. The event streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
Dan Henderson discusses his new contract, moving to MW, testing and more
The UFC has suffered two heavy blows to their roster over the course of the last three months. With Georges St. Pierre stepping away from the sport and Anderson Silva very likely facing a year layoff or a possible retirement, the small handful of big PPV draws they had -of which Silva and GSP were included-have taken a big hit. There are only so many times Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones can fight in a year, so many have been left looking for a solution.
The answer, at least in part, has been there all along, though. Dan Henderson, despite the recent dents on his fight resume, still carries the power of name recognition, experience and skill. His career is far from over, and to look past him as an opportunity to beef up those PPV numbers would be foolhardy. The interest in the rematch with Shogun has fans excited and just goes to show that he can still create excitement and anticipation for the UFC.
