Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, as usual, went into overtime earlier this afternoon (Jan. 24, 2013) after the UFC on FOX 6 press conference (watch the replay here), huddling with reporters in attendance on the sidelines to talk about numerous hot topics and emerging issues.
White offered up nearly a half-hour of his time, discussing the new UFC Code of Conduct policy, the fighter-related problems he has to address (Ronda Rousey and her "interesting" Sandy Hook ReTweet is not included), the retirement of Matt Hughes and his new position as Vice President of Athlete Development and Government Relations, Twitter, Anthony Pettis and his decision to fight Clay Guida rather than wait for a 155-pound title shot, the next fight for Anderson Silva (more on that here), the future title chances for Michael Bisping and much more.
Of course, White also went into more detail about the Quinton Jackson drama, saying that "Rampage" is committing "professional suicide" acting the way he was today at the United Center in Chicago, Ill., responding comparatively to reporters' questions and playing mobile phone video games on the dais.
At least his staredown with Glover Teixeira (see pics here), his opponent in the UFC on FOX co-main event this Saturday night (Jan. 26, 2013), wasn't completely awful. However, it certainly wasn't worth his $1.38 million per fight average.
