Sure, Dana White talks about putting on a fight for the US troops in Afghanistan and says that they might not even film any of the fights. He addresses Anderson Silva talking about moving down to 170lb and fighting GSP, Dana is all for making the fight happen if Silva can cut weight. Dana is asked about whats next for BJ Penn, he said if BJ Penn wins vs Frankie Edgar he is open to vacating the lightweight belt and moving BJ Penn up in weight. He talks about the rumored Bellagio debt and says he dont owe them or any casino in vegas a penny. Also says that he has never even gambled at Bellagio.

Pretty good interview though.

Basically just that how they got to make it possible to be in Abu Dhabi, Dana saying he would consider a fight with anderson and gsp if anderson can go down to 170. He talks about Bj might go to 170 after fighting might or might not vacant title. and Dana white doesn't owe money to the bellagio. There might be a fight in Afghanistan for a fight for the troops thing in the summer.

Very informative video. Welcome to the forum as well. +Rep for posting this as I havent seen it yet.

Very interesting . . . he said he would be interested in seeing Anderson Silva move down to fight GSP. Also said this could be BJ's last fight at lightweight.

I don't see why they couldn't film it the WWE does this every year and films it and comedians have filmed USO tours/shows.
