Dana White interested in adding Metamoris to Fight Pass: 'People are going to be absolutely surprised' at what pops up a


Dana White says people are going to be 'absolutely surprised' at the things that are going to pop up at Fight Pass.

UFC Fight Pass launched a few months ago to mixed reviews, and while they have sorted any of the initial bugs or complaints, Zuffa has even upped the ante recently by adding other varied content from streaming live events of Invicta FC, to commission hearings on Wanderlei Silva's drug testing issues.

They're not stopping there though, as Dana White says that we can expect many things and other sports to be featured on the site. As the UFC president states, they're also interested in striking a deal with grappling promotion Metamoris, who are about to feature UFC stars such as Chael Sonnen and Josh Barnett on their next event.

"Absolutely, Metamoris is something we'd look at for Fight Pass," Dana White exclaimed as he spoke to MMA-in-Asia, "I think people are going to be absolutely surprised at what are going to pop up at Fight Pass."

"It started out as a way to give the library to all our fans so they'll have full access, but now it keeps evolving and it keeps getting better and better."

Metamoris has hosted 3 events so far, and were made available for an online PPV stream. Their 4th event is on August, with Chael Sonnen reportedly headlining the event against Andre Galvao, it's really something White has zero problems with.

"Chael retired. He's doing his thing on Fox, and what he wants to do on his spare time is up to him."

As for the Metamoris side of the table, Ralek Gracie told MMA Fighting that Sonnen's presence on the card doesn't mean that a Fight Pass deal is close, but he did say that they are "open to just about anything".
