Dana White Interview on Versus.com

http://www.versus.com/blogs/mma-beat...t/most-recent/

We already know a lot of things he said here but nonetheless:

* says Australia could very well be the 3rd biggest market for them soon after the US and Canada.

* says he thought Penn won the fight but understands people who had Fitch won.

* says that he is disappointed in Bisping and that the knee was intentional. He doesn't know at that point what's next for the Count.

* says he doesn't understand Rashad and his "friends" policy. He backed himself into a corner here. How can they (Jones & Rashad) be good friend anyway? They just met.

Well there you go.

I was always under the impression, that the British market would be huge thing for the UFC and that they are 3rd? Mmm appereantly thats not the case?

I remember reading an article by Metzler where he said Australia was the UFC's best PPV market outside of North America.

From reading quite a few British posters on here, the UFC is on a premium subscription channel, so they don't have to buy individual events. Maybe that's what is making Australia a big market for them.

Obviously, it's also very popular there. There was even talk after UFC 127 of hopefully being able to do a stadium show.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Bonner isn't made for television, don't know if its just me, but he doesn't have a voice for it and kinda comes off uncomfortable asking the questions...maybe because it was Dana?

Ariel Helwani on the other hand is a great interviewer. Like his style.
