Dana White was a guest for TSN Podcast Centre to promote the UFC’s first ever Canadian show, UFC 83. In the interview White answers a number of questions on whether or not he puts himself ahead of the fighters, why the UFC is holding an event in Montreal and towards the end he does some word association with the host.

Interesting notes from the interview include White saying that UFC 83 will be the biggest UFC event ever and that he thinks Fedor Emelianenko is the “number 5 ranked heavyweight in the world” which – by going off some other recent comments by the UFC president – technically means he has been promoted.
