"A great fight is, at heart, a conversation between two talented athletes, and Alvarez and Cerrone communicated beautifully."
Just things that interest me

"[Johnson] is not the guy I wanted. But pretty much everyone else was booked, so it wasn’t a huge surprise, but it was like, I’ll take it at this point. I mean listen, it can be any combination of things that get you a title shot. Apparently fighting Roy Nelson and then fighting Pat Cummins gets you a title shot. Maybe beating no one in the top 10 like Glover did gets you a title shot. There’s no rhyme or reason to getting a title shot. So, beating the number one contender does not get you a title shot. At this point, I don’t really care, I think I’m in the best in the world so I’ll just keep fighting whoever they put in the cage."

"It says, ‘Dana, my manager said you guys talked and are getting a contract together for me,’" Sonnen explained. “‘I think you should be aware of my demands. First, Jello Biafra replaces Bruce Buffer as ring announcer. Secondly, every fight I’m in must be a No. 1 contender fight or a title match. If I lose, I get an immediate rematch until I win. No media can look me in the eye, or they will be removed from the room.
“‘No. 5: Headset legalized through the commission so I can call my own fights. No. 6: No longer will I walk to the ring. I need to be carried. No. 7: Keys to your least favorite Ferrari - I’m not asking too much. No. 8: I can Skype or FaceTime my fights if I feel like flying. No. 9 - and it’s non-negotiable: tell ‘GSP’ to stop being such a dick. I’ll return his truck when I’m done with it.’
"See, I’m not all about money, people. There’s more to these contracts. They’re very sophisticated."
Dana White on Ronda Rousey & Miesha Tate on The Ultimate Fighter 18:
“It’s going exactly the way you’d expect it to be going, bad! I’m dead serious. Miesha and Ronda hate each other. It’s literally crazy drama every day. It’s irritating. It’s Ken-Tito type stuff. I don’t even know if some of the stuff will make TV. It’s bad. Those two do not like each other and their camps do not like each other. And it’s just pure f**king mayhem every day.”
