"Thank God for Dana White. The guy went against what people said couldn’t be done, and it was gonna go away. I thought it was going away, and I was just blown out that we were gonna lose it. And to see it now on Fuel (TV) all the time, I never anticipated that it would go to this and people would be so into it. People gave it a negative rap. They were saying ‘oh, it’s so violent,’ and it’s not any more violent than the movies kids are watching these days. So no, I didn’t think it would come to this, but I’m thrilled it is. When (UFC color commentator) Joe Rogan goes out with laryngitis, I want a shot. That’s how much of a fan I am."

Diners, Drive-ins and Cagefighting. Celebrity chef and Food Network television star, Guy Fieri, talks to UFC.com about following Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which has evolved from a Las Vegas freak-show fight to a global phenomenon under the leadership of the Fertitta brothers and UFC President Dana White. Fieri also makes time for the up-and-comers, hooking up with former top prospect David Terrell for "The Soul Assassin's" regional mixed martial arts (MMA) events in Sonoma County. Food, folks and fisticuffs. Alright Maniacs, who's hungry?
