Dana White: I will die if Velasquez or JDS gets hurt

source: mmamania.com

A number of major fights fell through this year due to injuries. With only a single fight scheduled for Saturday's UFC on FOX debut, what would happen if one them got hurt?

"I'll die," explained UFC President Dana White. "I will die if something happens to one of these guys. Don't even ask me that. You and me are fighting now because of that.

"Oh yeah, I'm a mess over this thing. It is what it is. This is a full contact sport and that's how they train and you roll with the punches, pun intended. It happens.

"If you look at our history, when it happens, we fix it. We figure it out and we find a way. That's the business we're in and that's what we do. It's Wednesday, I'm feeling good that nothing can happen between now and Saturday."

I hope it's a 10 second KO by JDS. I pay damn near 50 bucks a month and they repay me back with a 1 fight event. I fucking Love watching fights on my tiny computer monitor when I have a 47 inch flatscreen in the same room. Bett yet, I hope they both get turf toe and you have to step into the cage with Joe Rogan and get your ass KTFO !

I'm sure Overeem or someone like that was told to be as close to fighting shape as possible just in case something happened.

In my experience, anytime that there is some White House nonsense, or "breaking news", if there is only one network not showing it that network will be FOX 10 times out of 10...even if all that is on is some Seinfeld rerun.Would not be concerned about that one.

FORCE MAJEUREthere's a lot of chatter everywhere, what is the worst case scenario with this live event. Everything and anything under the sun up to "death" has been mentioned.Bigger question would be is this particular channel of FOX subject to "breaking news" ?There's nothing worse being interrupted with "breaking news"Or even worse, "we break to the white house...":-(

It was about likeness right. If I recall correctly, Dana either cut or threatened to cut Cain; this was the same ordeal where Fitch was momentarily cut. It was all of the Zinkin/AKA guys except for Swick.
