Dana White: 'We deliver great fights'


"The one thing no one can ever say is that we don’t deliver good fights. People always look at a card and say it’s not going to be any good. Then it ends up being the best card of the year. Just because Brock Lesnar is not in the main event doesn’t mean there won’t be great fights. If you’re a fight fan you want great fights. We deliver great fights."

UFC President Dana White responds to some of the recent criticism over his rapid-fire pay-per-view schedule that unfortunately has been ravaged by fighter injuries and other various illnesses and maladies. White contends that headlining bouts of Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin for UFC 106 and Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva for UFC 108 are more than deserving of main event status -- despite being promoted to that spot only after it was left open by Zuffa's first choice. Any card that isn't headlined by a current champion tends to draw the fans ire, but is the UFC simply a victim of its own success?
