Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen trains MMA and compares Dana White to Kanye West (Video)

After the interviewer asks him who in the music industry has a "big mouth" like the UFC President. Nice.

"Well, there's plenty of them ... (long pause) ... Kanye gets into trouble a lot, Kanye West ... uh ... (long pause) ... there's loads of 'em! And some of 'em it's a front as well."

The 53-year-old guitarist feels like "Superman" now that he quit drinking and started training in mixed martial arts to stay fit when he's on the road touring with Def Leppard. And why not? Training MMA is the "hip" thing to do if you're a celebrity.

Anyone out there agree with Collen and think Dana White is the Kanye West of MMA because his mouth gets him into trouble? Or has the Brit poured a little too much sugar on himself over the years?

Any Def Leppard fans out there care to weigh in on this debate?
