White: JDS begged me for Overeem fight

by Chris Palmquist | source: The Underground

In a story yesterday, Junior Dos Santos expressed his opinion that he felt Overeem was not deserving of a title shot, that it would be 'out of order'. Also stating that he felt that the UFC was prioritizing fights that sell well rather than choosing those most deserving of a title fight.

Per the usual, UFC President Dana White was open in speaking on the situation, contradicting the thoughts of the current heavyweight champion. White posted this response on the Underground Forum today: 

just an fyi JDS begged me for the Reem fight said he respects Cain very much and thinks he deserves the shot but would like to KO Reem first cause he hates him. word for word what he said.

I am a huge overeem fan but JDS eats him up with striking.I see this fight ending with an uppercut that would make bus drivers proud.

Not at all.I just fully beieve - Like there's no doubt at all in my mind - That Cigano is gonna KO Cain the secound time around - just like he did first time.Well, is that crazy thinking? Yep of course not. But here's facts:Cigano is far and away #1Cain is no doubt AT ALL #2 but his style will always be bad against Cigano.Roidreem and anyone else? Years behind without much chance at all. Cain would painfully destroy Roidareeem. Cigano will make it look not evevn competitive. EASY FIGHTT.CIGANO FIGHTING!!!!

Cigano begs Dana White for the Overeem fight saying he hates him and wants to knock him out.UG logic: "Cigano wants no part of Overeem."What the fuck!?

sal Penis Stonepony should not even be watching mma. He knows nothing, is wrong everytime and constantly fighter bashes. He's some 16 yr old nerd whose scared of women. <img src="/images/phone/droid.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/><br /><br /><br /></blockquote><br />Buddy, you're about as sharp as a pillowcase full of warm cheese. Have never seen you make a comment that suggests you've got an IQ above that of tree moss.<br /><br />If I know nothing, correct me. You won't though will you? You've never tried. You can't. All you ever do is cry, and cry, and cry, and call it fighter bashing when you can't respond to the facts... Explain to me how Overoids has earned a shot at the UFC HW title? Tell me where we have seen Overoid's mythical elite-striking in MMA? Which high-level MMA striker did he get the better of on the feet?<br /><br />This is where your eyes glaze over and you drool on yourself for an hour.<br /> what top striker has he faced in mma since being hw....i can only think of two and he won both those fights....mirko cro cop....not technically a win but overeem was winning before groin shot...and mark hunt which was easy sub win kuz hunt was still shit on ground.....not that hes much better now....ur logic is about as smart as sayin anderson silva is a shitty kickboxer kuz hes never shown any skill against elite level k1 fighters....just cuz the oppurtunity to strike with elite strikers in mma hasnt happened in a while for overeem he somehow has bad mma standup.....his chin....now thats a valid question but overeem since being hw has taken some massive shots and only someone who has never fought would bring glove size into it the difference in force delivered is similar the only possible argument is that the mma gloves focus the force in a smaller area....but i know i just went way over ur head there sorry

u sir are n idiot some people do not understand the difference between being outstruck and letting ur opponenet land strikes because u have no respect for the striking or power and in overeems case in that fight is very worried about the takedown....lol at carwin and cain being top hw strikers cains not bad but there both just wrestlers with power not much technique especially carwin.....but u knowing nothing about striking prolly explains your retarded post
