Dana White On Fedor Emelianenko “Believe me, I’m trying to make it happen”



Now that Affliction is no more, where do the fighters go next. Strikeforce, UFC, Japan?

UFC President Dana White On ESPN Radio 1100 in Las Vegas,

“My job is to put on the best fighters and to give you, the fans, the fights you want to see … I’ve been trying to get Fedor in the UFC. I want it because you want it. Believe me, I’m trying to make it happen.”

“He’ll fight for the title first …. What does he need, a tune-up fight or something? … To argue where this guy sits in the heavyweight division, we can argue that all day.”

Dana White on Fedor vs Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture,

“I don’t know …. Fedor has a ton of experience. The guy’s been around forever. But you can’t take anything away from Brock Lesnar. … It’s an interesting fight. It’s a very good fight.”

“Fedor’s got to come to a deal first … If Randy can go out there and cut that deal with Fedor, then Randy, get to work, buddy.”

Their is not that many good fights left for Fedor outside the UFC. Maybe his management will come to there senses and work with the UFC.
