White: Coker a better fit for Bellator


Earlier this week the UFC's biggest rival, Bellator MMA announced that President Bjorn Rebney would be leaving the company and former UFC employee and Strikeforce President Scott Coker would replace him. UFC President Dana White had remained quiet about the change, but recently spoke to AXS TV:

Regarding Bellator, White was diplomatic about Coker taking over for Rebney, whose first name he often took jabs at by calling him “Bjork” instead of “Bjorn” – which apparently will continue.

“Not only do I know Scott very well, I know the guys at Spike (TV) very well,” White said. “I was in business with them for a long time, and I think this is a much better fit for them than ‘Bjork’ was.”

You don't need to explain to us why you get turned on when you see Dana White. It's 2014 man, nobody is judging you anymore.

This girl is over 30 now.   She was 18 when I started dating her. One of my first "serious" girlfriends.  We broke up many years ago but have remained friends. I even introduced her to her first husband.   Anyways, her name is Dana, and I ALWAYS think of a young innocent petitte woman when I hear the name Dana.

My experience has been quite the reverse, I think the point is that in no way is Bjorn originally anything other than a man's name where Dana is both so he... really needs to work on the thinking thing

Dana should have told him to move to MW then. It's stupid to fight in one division while asking for the champ in another.

Dana has always seemed more like a man's name to me. I've known way more men with the name, than women.
