Dana White – Tyron is full of shit. He couldn’t be more wrong. It is absolutely not true. Our lawyer called Tyron’s manager and told him to stop making false claims. Dos Anjos won a great fight against Robbie Lawler. He is next. Nate has turned down every fight we offered him. I told the L.A times that the Nate Diaz rumour was not true. But, they just like to print stuff.
UFC 222 is a great card. It is stacked. I think Mario is disgusting. I never want to see him referee again. Priscilla did not tap. The reason this sport is big is because most fighters don’t tap. But, the ref is in there to protect fighters no matter what.
I know that TJ wants to fight DJ. But, I am not sure if DJ wants that fight. So, if that fight does not happen, we could see Cody Garbrandt vs TJ Dillashaw 2.
Floyd said that he would fight both in the ring and in the octagon. It only makes sense if he comes to the octagon. I won’t be shocked if Brock returns. Anything is possible. Brock has always shown interest in fighting in the UFC.
Rafael Dos Anjos – I think this makes no sense. Dana dismissed the fight. The match is not official. I heard from a friend that I am next. Nate Diaz has not won any fight at welterweight. He has beaten McGregor who was not a welterweight. I feel like most of the guys want to keep their status as champion but you can’t forget about contenders who are working hard to fight for the belt. Tyron Woodley first asked Michael Bisping, then GSP and now Nate Diaz. The other day it was Conor. I deserve to fight for the title next and he knows it.
Dominick Cruz – The title should be my next fight but they want to give TJ an easier fight. He wants to fight someone so that he can keep the belt. I fought TJ, Urijah and Cody and lost the belt. Silly Dilly should fight me again. Does he not want to get that back? Stop going down to 125 and fighting baby boys. Everybody wants to see if he can beat me and they know that I can beat him. I don’t hate them. I want the guy who is champion. If I fight TJ and beat him, I would fight Cody after that.
Mark Hunt – I don’t mind airing my grievances at all. I like to speak the truth. It never cost me. I want to compete on an even playing field. This is how I get ahead. If it costs me, so be it.
Fabricio Werdum – Daniel Cormier is a friend of mine for a long time. He was just wrestling guy. I take him down 3 times during first training 8 years ago. Now, he is complete. But I think Stipe Miocic will win on points.
Rose Namajunas – I admire her for showing her face in the press conference after losing. I expect that a better version of Joanna will show up. I am not expecting the silent killer type. She is welcome to come as the boogey-woman again. I don’t really care.
Khabib’s Manager Ali Abdel Aziz – The UFC is very smart. These guys are 4-3. If Khabib or Tony don’t show up, they will bring Conor back in May/June. I am a former promoter. They will strip Conor during fight week or else Khabib will not show up to fight. I was told that Khabib was fighting for the undisputed belt.
