Earlier this week reports surfaced that the UFC's return to Boston may be in jeopardy due to some language in Massachusett's law that all athletes must have a social security number. However, UFC President Dana White today told the Boston Herald that everything has been resolved:

But when a state law, demanding social security numbers for licensed fighters, put multiple fights, including the main event, at risk, White thought he might have to look elsewhere for a card that is chock full of foreign fighters,

“You know, when it gets down to the fact, do you want to change the card? You know, do you want to move fights around and switch fights?,” White said. “When that starts happening, it’s like ‘Yeah, maybe we can’t do the fight here.’ But, you know, we figured it out.”

Though the plans for Boston created some uncertain moments, White said the UFC won’t think twice about coming back to the city.

“No. We ended up getting everything straightened out. The fights will happen. The card will be great. It’s going to be good,” White said. “There’s always something. It literally never ends. There’s always something, something that pops up or whatever. We’re pretty used to dealing with this stuff.”

If I were to own a company I would want a clone of Dana running it. Say what you say but the UFC is his life and he's relentless at it. Phone Post

Me too. That's what he meant last week about how another company won't surpass them because to be top dog you have to eat, live and breathe the hustle and daily grind. Who else is willing to do that?

Little tidbit for you; DW didn't open his gifts from Christmas 2011 until the third week in January. He didn't do much better for 2012. The responsibility to run and advance the UFC requires nearly everything. I know of no one else willing to make a sacrifice anywhere close to that for anything other than a family member. And DW has done it for 12 years. Guys a trooper and LOVES the sport and treasures UFC fans more than they will ever know.

Legislation of the night bonus to Mass officials?

By any means necessary, keep Conor McGregor on that card
