McGregor|Good in violence, Dana White speaks on the attitude of UFC Fighters.
source Dana White, president of the UFC, appeared on the Australian news program "The Project" on Tuesday, It was to promote UFC 234 in Melbourne, Australia. The main event, which will be held on February 11 next year, is a fight between Australia's Robert Whittaker (28) and Calvin Gaselum (27, USA). About three months later, the two players will have a showdown over the middleweight title. Question were thrown at Dana and The recording didn't flow as planned. The wrong topic heated up the recording studio. It was a story that had nothing to do with the Australian Games.he was asked the violence caused by Connor to which he replied " Connor McGregor (aged 30, Ireland) committed a bus disturbance in April, and is now in the hands of panels, hosts and guests." The MMA News, a U.S. mixed martial arts news site, was not in the mood of questioning (White representative), but the question of the host was somewhat offensive. "It was definitely a reproachful tone, and we ended up covering the studio with a sort of fighting air." Dana White "Let's talk about a series of events that MacGregor and Khabin Numagomef have done," the project organizer said. It's almost a novel. McGregor attacked a bus that was occupied by fighters seven months ago. After the game, Hahm jumped Cage and caused violence. You commented that as a team leader you are very angry at the actions of both players. Are you right?" The main argument was: The presenter said, "In my view, as a third-party, I think you're not angry. I have not been told that Khabib and McGregor have received any 'grace' from the UFC. I never heard of the fact that I paid for it. Let's be honest. Don't you like their behavior? Since we can gather huge issues without a moment's sleep, what better way to promote ourselves than this? Don't you think so, Dana?" White immediately rebutted. Not only is it not true, but such violent exposure is not conducive to business growth at all. ``Many people ask the same questions as you. 'Hey, but inside, is that good? It's bad, but it's good for a box office,' he asks secretly. But I can say for sure. Khabib and McGregor behavior have no positive impact on business. "We don't think such actions are necessary to sell PAVs." Then the host said, "Well, why don't we take any action? Did you know that there is a controversy over the manipulation of the bus case? There are suspicions about the over-balanced camera structure and open-screen views that viewers can see clearly. All of this is planned by UFC." White is also a tough opponent in the fight. He punched a counter at a socialite. The UFC Imbedded video crew responded sternly, saying, "Although cameras were installed at various stadiums, manipulation of the video is nonsense at the association level." "The voice of White who refuted the second question has become higher and the tone has become more aggressive," MMA News said. White said, "We always put a cameraman around (played by players) in order to capture every aspect of the UFC fighter. If necessary, install cameras. Through this process, UFC embedded images are created. There were many players sitting on the bus that McGregor visited. "There was a professional cameraman around and a good screen was available." "I don't know if he knew it, but McGregor was arrested (the New York police). He went straight to prison! He later appeared before the New York Court. Under such circumstances, what punishment can I impose? Suspended business trip? He was already locked up in prison and couldn't get hung up. I hope you know exactly what happened and ask questions." The same goes for the case." While waiting for a decision by the National Sports Council of Nevada, the UFC stressed that it is not desirable for the UFC to make punishment gestures first. Nevada's laws, of course, are more 'greater' laws and principles than UFC regulations, and ask what and how to punish them more. White said, "We were taken to the police immediately after the violence in UFC 229. He is also under detention and cannot be paid. In this situation, I hope you will think about how useful it is to give them disciplinary action such as suspension.
Could we see Khabib vs Mayweather?

Aside from banter from both fighters, that's the first real acknowledgment of the rumored fight we've heard from White. Because Nurmagomedov is under contract with the UFC, he'd need clearance to compete in such an event, but White insists the bout must be fought in the UFC's Octagon under mixed martial arts rules, not another boxing match like the one between Mayweather and Conor McGregor last year. “We went over there, we boxed him and if he wants to do it again, he’s gotta come fight in the UFC,” White said. “I don’t think it’s very realistic at all but I didn’t think the boxing match was either and it happened so we’ll see. “There will no be a boxing match. Obviously, if it was something that Khabib really wanted to do, we’d sit down and talk about it but I don’t like anything about it. I haven’t talked to Khabib about it at all. His interest needs to be defending his title over here. That’s what he should be focused on.” Mayweather scored a 10th-round TKO over McGregor in the bout and both men enjoyed a mammoth payday for their efforts. Clearly, the UFC gained monetarily as well as the co-promoter of the event. A similar arrangement would likely have to be made for a Mayweather-Nurmagomedov bout. “There’s a reason why Floyd Mayweather wants to fight my guys,” White said. “Because there’s big money there for him. Obviously, there’s big money there for us but I’m not into making those kinds of fights. If Floyd wants to come over here, he said he’s been wrestling and doing this and that, if he wants to come over and fight in the UFC, he’s more than welcome.” It's difficult to imagine Mayweather agreeing to an MMA bout with anyone. let alone a fighter with Nurmagomedov's style. The fight is going to go to the ground, and that is obviously where Mayweather has had little-to-no training. As a businessman who always looks to chase low-risk-high-reward opportunities, an MMA bout with Nurmagomedov doesn't seem like it matches the profile. Then again, this is combat sports and we've learned you can never rule anything out.
'One-man Wolfpack' Darrion Caldwell on how wrestling prepped him for Bellator title
Bellator bantamweight champion Darrion Caldwell goes backto work Friday night – but his title won’t be on the line. Instead, Caldwell (12-1 MMA, 9-1 BMMA) will move up to featherweight for a non-title bout against Noad Lahat (12-3 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) in the Bellator 204 main event. It’s Caldwell’s way of giving himself a challenge, and a win almost certainly would have him wanting a title fight at 145 pounds. Bellator 204 takes place Friday at Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. The main card will air on Paramount following prelims on MMAjunkie. Caldwell won Bellator’s bantamweight title in October 2017 with a decision over Eduardo Dantas. In March, he defended it with a first-round submission of Leandro Higo. Now he’ll move back to featherweight for the first time since October 2014. His 135-pound title won’t be on the line against Lahat in what for now may amount to a stay-busy fight. Lahat has won three of his four fights for Bellator since signing after a 2-2 stint in the UFC. He has submissions of Scott Cleve and Lloyd Carter, and most recently took a decision from Jeremiah Labiano at Bellator 188 in his native Israel to bounce back from a decision loss to Henry Corrales. In the video above, Caldwell talks about his journey to MMA and how it started with his wrestling background.
