UFC 167 Video: Dana White interview on injuries to Pettis and Velasquez, Miesha Tate being unknown, Dan Henderson's contract and more

New, 6 comments

Will UFC re-sign Dan Henderson? Was the promotion surprised that Miesha Tate beat out Ronda Rousey in a fan vote? How long will Cain Velasquez be on the shelf? Answers to those questions and more in the video above.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few days away from its stacked 20th Anniversary pay-per-view (PPV) event, UFC 167: "St-Pierre vs. Hendricks," which takes place on Nov. 16, 2013 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC President Dana White spent a few minutes talking about all the relevant storylines heading into this weekend's big bonanza, but also touched on a few other key topics, including the untimely injuries to his heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, as well as to his lightweight titleholder Anthony Pettis.

More background on those boo-boos here and here.

In addition, White also shares his reaction to the news that UFC 168 co-main eventer and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 head coach Miesha Tate beat out her bitter rival Ronda Rousey in the first round of the EA Sports UFC Video Game Cover Vote.

See how that went down here.

And, of course, no Q&A with the head cheese would be complete without asking about Dan Henderson, who is without a contract following his UFC Fight Night 32 knockout loss to Vitor Belfort (watch it). Is UFC still interested in employing the 43-year-old ex-champ?

See for yourself in the video above.
