A interesting quote from UFC President Dana White came out of the UFC 91 Press Conference, he announced that the winner of Kenny Florian vs. Joe Stevenson will get a chance at BJ Penn’s lightweight title after he take on GSP for the UFC welterweight title in January.

“This fight is going to be amazing, and the winner of this fight will face B.J. Penn for the lightweight title after B.J. fights Georges St. Pierre,”

White also revealed on an interview with ESPN’s MMA Live that he is not apposed to promoting the much anticipated female matchup between Gina Carano vs. Cris Cyborg.

“I wouldn’t be opposed to it,” White responded when asked by Anik about promoting Carano vs. Cyborg. “And if I did do it, I’d probably do it in the WEC.”

This is interesting because Dana White has been a very vocal opponent to female MMA, swearing it would never happen in the UFC.
