Video: UFC Executives Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta talk MMA success

It's not every day that the head honchos of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) get to talk shop with the top financial media outlet The Wall Street Journal.

Speaking with reporter Lee Hawkins on the show WSJ Live, both UFC executives Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta discussed some of the specifics of the MMA business. Sure, there's plenty of the same talking points, but it's a nice glimpse into their partnership up top.

White called Lorenzo Fertitta a "meeting machine" and Strikeforce lightweight Gesias Cavalcante definitely agreed, saying on Twitter that he's one of the hardest working men in the business.

The bold claims were there as well with White saying he's not competing with the NFL, but more globally with the likes of soccer.

Is he blowing smoke or do you agree?
