New Dana interview

MMANEWS.COM | Dana White Unleashes Loads Of Big News On Ferrall Show

# Says if Chuck Liddell wins tonight without injury he will be fighting Wanderlei Silva in the December UFC show.

# Says he has been working for seven years to get this kind of talent altogether under his promotion.

# Says the difference between UFC and the NFL is that his company is global. Predicts UFC will be bigger internationally than NFL in the future.

# Says he is tired of people asking about Fedor Emelianenko. He says Fedor has a sambo match in November/December and he hopes to have him signed to a deal by December.

# A caller asks about the possibility of Wanderlei Silva vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in the UFC. Dana says it's a possibility now as the two are not on the same fight team anymore.

# When asked about Mirko CroCop, he says he always wanted to put up UFC guys against PRIDE guys. He says he doesn't know what's up with CroCop and thinks he might retire soon.

# Says Shogun is widely considered the number one fighter today at 205 pounds.

# Caller asks about Karo Parisyan getting a Welterweight title shot since he had one scheduled with Matt Hughes before suffering an injury. Says he got injured and couldn't take the fight, and has since had a few setbacks, be he will be back.

# When asked about Ultimate Fighter runner-up from last season, Manny Gamburyan, that he's tough but has serious shoulder problems right now. He is going to have major surgery soon and said Manny is pretty scared about it.

# Caller asks about Mark Hunt. He says Hunt is under contract from the PRIDE deal and they are working some things out still.

# Caller asks about Nick Diaz. He says Diaz is a bit difficult to work with, but there are more difficult guys to work with out there than Diaz.

# Caller asks about doing tournaments like the old UFC and how PRIDE did them across a few shows. He says the state athletic commissions will never let that happen as guys can not fight more than once in a single night.

# Asked about the Matt Hamill-Michael Bisping decision. He says he felt Hamill won and he got a ton of e-mail about the decision. Says he thinks fans believe he's the Don King of MMA, fixing fights and such, which is obviously not true. He says UFC matchmaker Joe Silva felt Bisping won the fight. He has yet to re-watch the fight on tape but felt being there live that Hamill had won. He says he's seen much worse decisions in the past.

# When talking about the upcoming UFC show in Montreal, he says Georges St. Pierre probably won't be fighting on the card as he is waiting out the winner of the Matt Serra vs. Matt Hughes title fight.

# Caller asks about match combinations with guys like Silva/Chuck Liddell/Quinton Jackson/Dan Henderson. He says Wanderlei Silva vs. Chuck Liddell will happen first if it can, and the winner will go on to fight Jackson for the title.

# HBO deal is still in the works.

Hunt's fought at 255-260 in K1. I need Hunt now. As his fights progressed he got harder to control on the ground.

So what's the deal with Shogun and Wanderlei opening a new camp?

So we will see Silva fighting Jackson for the UFC LHW title. I rather see Shogun get a title shot first.

Even if Hunt can't make 265 (I know he can, but it's hard for him) and the UFC doesn't make a Super Heavyweight division, can't they make Hunt fight fights at a catch weight? Even if the catch weight is above 265, I think the NSAC would allow that.
