Dana White: Two hours before UFC 187, we didn't think Andrei Arlovski was going to fight
As if Andrei Arlovski's roller-coaster first-round upset over Travis Browne at UFC 187 wasn't impressive enough, an ill-timed fight week injury threw Arlovski's status on the card into question right up until Saturday night, according to UFC President Dana White. "Two hours before he came out, we didn't think he was going to fight," White revealed on the FOX Sports 1 post-fight show. "He popped something in his calf the night before, could barely walk, was limping. The doctors checked him out and I guarantee you, he gritted it out to show the doctors that he could fight. So the doctors said it's up to you, do you want to fight? He said yes.

Daniel Cormier says he's the real champion because 'I didn't disqualify myself from competition'
After his victory over Anthony Johnson to become the new UFC light heavyweight champion on Saturday night, Daniel Cormier made it clear that he felt like the real champion. Cormier said in the UFC 187 post-fight press conference that just because he didn't defeat erstwhile champion Jon Jones -- who was stripped of his belt in April after a hit-and-run felony charge in Albuquerque -- doesn't mean the gold around his waist isn't legitimate.

John Dodson: It's a 'no-brainer' that I should get next shot at Demetrious Johnson
Dodson defeated Zach Makovsky via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Saturday night at UFC 187 here at MGM Grand. But it was a relatively uneventful fight with little action -- far different than what we're used to seeing from the electric Dodson. However, "The Magician" still thinks he should be granted the next title shot against Demetrious Johnson.

"The fighters aren't thrilled about it," White told Power 106 Los Angeles Wednesday. "I don't know, man. These guys don't get it. These guys are short-sighted sometimes. It's good for the industry. It's good for everybody. You want to have a deal like this.
