Dana White Talks UFC on Fox 5; Says Hendo Knee Not Ready, May Do Gustafsson vs. Machida (Video)


UFC president Dana White went on Fuel TV on Saturday night, getting in a quick interview before watching Juan Manuel Marquez knock out Manny Pacquiao.

White touched on a number of subjects, particularly on the lightweight title situation and future prospects to challenge Benson Henderson following Saturday night’s dominant performance over Nate Diaz. He also divulged that Dan Henderson’s knee may nut yet be up to snuff and that it’s a possibility that they could match Alexander Gustafsson in his place against Lyoto Machida.

Henderson, after hearing of White’s comments, however, later tweeted, “Not sure where @danawhite thinks he’s hearing that my knee isn’t doing ok. It’s doing great. Slowly picking training up just like I do for every training camp.”

Check out all that and more in Dana White’s UFC on Fox 5 post-fight video interview on Fuel TV…
