To say the UFC has been known to counter-program their opposition would be an understatement.

Competitors from Elite XC to Strikeforce to Affliction suddenly found UFC shows popping up on the same night as their own events over the years.

But according to UFC president Dana White, the company has no plans on countering Bellator MMA's first foray into the pay-per-view business. Asked point-blank at Thursday's UFC Fight Night press conference at the Wang Center whether the company would run a show on Nov. 2, the night of Bellator's event in Long Beach, Calif., White simply said "Nope."

Another point White made clear: He was among those watching last week's Bellator press conference featuring co-headliners and former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Tito Ortiz.

"I'm sure you guys saw, when they did the press conference, all they talked about was me," White said. "What are they going to talk about, the fight?

White imitated reporters asking Jackson and Ortiz questions. "Well you guys have lost your last 10 fights, who do you think this fight is going to go?' ‘Well I can tell you this, one of us is going to win. Someone's 0 must go.'"

When asked why the company won't counter Bellator the way he has other competitors, White remained dismissive.

"My video blog does more f--- viewers than their television show does," he said. "I'm not feeling very competitive."

Still, he couldn't resist taking a shot at Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney.

"Those guys, I saw Bjork was talking some smack, I'm like, dude, just shut up and run your business," he said. That's what you should have done when you started and you had some legs to stand on. They're hurting."

Love Dana, such a cunt. I mean that in the nicest possible way, his dismissiveness cracks me up.

There is always someone who has more than you.

Yeah. Its funny to hear Dana saying his blog draws more viewers.

Can you imagine Roger Goodell being asked about the UFC and saying, "We sold more Tom Brady jerseys than they did tickets last year".

No. You can't.

Imagine if Bill Gates responded with "That's cute" when Floyd Mayweather posts his gambling slips.

Someone always has more than you or does something better and I think the deal should be to keep that in mind when talking of those who have less.

Dana should not have to point out that he is so much bigger than Bellator.

Everyone ought to know that already.

Let everyone else say you are bigger because that sounds better than you saying it yourself. Phone Post

Why are you comparing completely separate things? Terrible analogies.


It's not about having more, it's about direct competition. It's nuts how far some people reach to find some fault with what Dana says.




[[[["Let everyone else say you are bigger because that sounds better "]]]


Well he did exactly that


[[["I'm sure you guys saw, when they did the press conference, all they talked about was me," White said. "What are they going to talk about, the fight?]]]

At least your douchey comments are consistent. Your name as a closing solidifies that....especially since your screen name or whatever already has your name.

Your comparisons are silly.

Agree with your point to an extent. Bjork was talking some smack though, so I consider Dana's wise cracks fair game. Phone Post
