SACRAMENTO – At Thursday’s UFC on FOX 9 press conference, veteran lightweight Mac Danzig revealed he was competing without the benefit of financial sponsors. UFC President Dana White found the timing extremely relevant, as he says a plan is in place to revamp the sponsorship structure for UFC fighters.

“It’s actually interesting that that came up today and that [Danzig] said that because, as usual – in typical UFC fashion – we’re working on that,” White told USA TODAY Sports. “We’re working on a deal that’s going to work for everybody. It’s going to help everybody, whether you’re the guy who just walked in the door at the UFC or you’re Cain Velasquez. We’re going to have this put together soon.”

White declined to reveal the specific for his plan but remained confident the idea will come to fruition in the near future. And when it does, he believes every fighter on the roster will benefit from the shift.

“There will be a structure for sponsorship where everybody makes money and everybody is going to be happy,” White said.

White also gave an update on Georges St-Pierre‘s fighting future, explained the price change for this month’s UFC 168 pay-per-view and revealed why he’s still leaving the door open for a future Anderson Silva vs. Roy Jones Jr. boxing match. Check out the video above.
