Dana White on Johny Hendricks’ win over Matt Brown: ‘I didn't love it’
DALLAS -- Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks used a steady diet of takedowns and ground and pound to drown Matt Brown for three rounds and score a much-needed decision win on Saturday night at UFC 185. But despite the lopsided nature of the fight, Hendricks' first reaction was to criticize his own performance as lackluster, and in that, UFC President Dana White seemed to agree.

White: Rafael dos Anjos injured, but likely to meet Cerrone-Nurmagomedov winner
Newly minted UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos’ performance against Anthony Pettis was shocking to behold, but it might be all the more impressive considering an obstacle he overcame to make it to the fight. Dos Anjos (24-7 MMA, 12-5 UFC), according to UFC President Dana White, tore his medial collateral ligament (MCL) two weeks prior to his title-winning headliner against champ Pettis (18-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) on Saturday at UFC 185. White, speaking to MMAjunkie at the post-event news conference at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, joked: “Just my luck, guy who wins the title is hurt.” Pettis, of course, emerged from a title winning performance in August 2013 with an injured knee that kept him sidelined for more than a year. Dos Anjos’ injury, however, might not be as severe. An MCL injury is considered less severe than a tear of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which Pettis suffered.

Chris Cariaso: If Henry Cejudo doesn't make weight, I'm not fighting him
If Henry Cejudo doesn’t make weight, Saturday’s UFC 185 event is going to need a new pay-per-view opener. Chris Cariaso (17-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who meets Cejudo (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in the first PPV bout at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, is putting his foot down when it comes to the former Olympic gold-medal wrestler, who’s repeatedly struggled to make the 126-pound limit for the flyweight division.

Munoz: Hard to speculate if Rousey can beat men
"Someone in the UFC said that Ronda can beat 50% of the men, but it's totally different man," Munoz explained during a live chat with ABS-CBN Sports. "It's totally different. It's hard to say, and you can speculate all you want. She can definitely compete, but I don't know if it's true." "She is truly unbelievable though. She's great and she's an amazing person," he said. "She can definitely match them technique per technique (in grappling)," Munoz said about Rousey's chances. "I definitely believe she can compete with them, but it's too hard to speculate if she can actually beat (most of the men) in MMA."
