http:www.MMAWeekly.com/ -- Bellator MMA used the recent UFC on Fox 5 event to blast out advertising to several local markets to promote its rebranding efforts and move over to to Spike TV in January.
UFC president Dana White says he doesn't blame them at all, "I'd be looking at everything I could to make myself look like the UFC... I don't blame them."
Last week, UFC fans around the country may have been caught of guard by the Bellator advertisements during the TUF finales. It looks as though FOX did a poor job of defending itself intelligently at all times, and the end result was a catchy jingle equipped advertisement for the UFC's biggest competitor. As MMA fans, we don't care as long as it means more ask-kicking contest on free TV, but from a business standpoint, it certainly looked like a bold move by Bellator's parent company, Viacom. more
http://www.MMAWeekly.com/ -- Randy Couture has signed a partnership with Bellator and Spike TV, and that, or perhaps more particularly how the deal went down, leaves sour taste in UFC president Dana White's mouth.
"Randy Couture can't buy a ticket (to the UFC)."
But Randy's son Ryan Couture, who is one of the Strikeforce fighters making the move over to the Octagon, and White puts his full support behind him, telling Ryan "this is your house." more
Why doesn't the UFC reveal the exact amount their fighters are paid?
Well, according to UFC President Dana White they don't put out exactly what their athletes make because once that figure becomes public knowledge, his fighters become the target of every hanger on in the world.
White spoke about the subject on Thursday, and compared the recent signing of former Milwaukee Brewers first basemen Prince Fielder to a multi-million dollar deal with the Detroit Tigers.
"All I have seen for the past 3 days is that Prince Fielder is making $214 million dollars over the next 9 years. That sounds awesome right? Everybody would love to be Prince Fielder. (Expletive) no, you don't want to be Prince Fielder over the next three years," White said.
"His whole life is going to change. He thought it was bad before with the (expletive) he had going on in his life? Everybody and their mother is coming after that 214. Believe me when I tell you. Mark my words, Prince Fielder talk to me i more

http://www.MMAWeekly.com -- UFC president Dana White is pressing to have surgery done to correct a recent health condition. If he does so, the rehab could put him on the sidelines for a month or more. What would happen if the UFC head honcho were to be out of commission for such a lengthy duration? And would it give us a taste of what the UFC would be like if Dana White wasn't around to run the show? more
http://www.MMAWeekly.com/ -- UFC president Dana White has long said that the women's side of mixed martial arts is still lagging too far behind to include women's weight classes in the UFC Octagon.
He's still of that same mind, although his stance has softened quite a bit with the emergence of Strikeforce women's bantamweight Ronda Rousey.
There's no question that Rousey has both the ability to dominate in the cage and the personality that translates such talent into star power outside of the more
