Dana White at UFC 123UFC president Dana White sat down with Fox 11's James Koh recently in Los Angeles to discuss all things UFC.

Of particular interest, White defended the number and quality of events that the promotion is putting on, as well as UFC fighter salaries compared to the big names in boxing.

“In no way shape or form is there anywhere in their contract that says they couldn’t come out and tell you what they make,” said White in the interview. “If a Georges St-Pierre was sitting in this chair or Anderson Silva and they wanted to tell you what their last payday was they absolutely positively have the right to do that. There’s no gag order or anything. They don’t want you to know… I don’t want it to ever be about the money. It’s about the fight.”

Check out what White had to say about fighter salaries and keeping it “all about the fight”…
