Retired fighter Nate Quarry takes UFC to task on potential uniform, fighter treatment

By Steven Marrocco

Retired middleweight and onetime UFC title challenger Nate Quarry remembers an unpleasant conversation he had several years ago with UFC President Dana White about a patch on his shorts. It followed one of many notices he received about the clothing he wore on his walk to the cage.

“This was back when Dana called fighters themselves to talk to them about sponsorships,” Quarry…

RONDA ROUSEY • The World’s Most Dangerous Woman

At the age of 28, she has in four years become the most dominant mixed-martial-arts fighter in the sport’s history and was in fact recently named “the most dominant athlete alive,” beating out names like LeBron and Mayweather. On the fight scene, there’s never, ever really been anyone quite like her. “She’s a beast, man,” says UFC president Dana White. “She’s the greatest athlete I’ve ever worked with. With her, it’s like the Tyson era, like, how fast is she gonna destroy somebody, and in what manner? Ronda’s one in a million.”

Dana White: Ronda Rousey vs. Cris Cyborg would sell over 2 million PPV buys

UFC president Dana White believes the promotion has a fight that would be MMA’s version of Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao so long as one of the participants can cut the weight to make the mega-bout official.

White spoke to Jim Rome on Wednesday about UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her long simmering fued with former Strikeforce champion Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino.

‘Cyborg’ has been itching for a fight with Rousey for the past few years, but the Brazilian currently fights at 145 pounds and the UFC has stated on several occasions that the only way they would make the matchup happen would be at bantamweight.

Despite his mixed emotions about ‘Cyborg’ based on previous interviews, White says he wants nothing more than for the fight with Rousey to happen and he’s hopeful that she will make the 135-pound weight limit for the first time later this year.

If ‘Cyborg’ can hit the mark and win her fight, White promises her next stop is the UFC and a showdown with Rousey.

Morning Report: Dana White believes beating Vitor Belfort could be 'the launching pad' for Chris Weidman it was for Anderson Silva

Morning Report: Dana White believes beating Vitor Belfort could be ‘the launching pad’ for Chris Weidman it was for Anderson Silva

If he’s advertising, there’s still plenty of room on the Chris Weidman bandwagon. The UFC middleweight champion voiced a bit of frustration in the Octagon after dolling out a first-round TKO of Vitor Befort at UFC 187, telling fans it was his ‘last invitation’ to ‘join the team.’ UFC president Dana White doesn’t sound too worried. “It takes time,” White told UFC.com. “You look at Anderson Silva…

UFC 189 Offical Commercial Will Get You More Excited for This Match-up

If you watched UFC 187 you got the chance to be one of the first to see the new commercial for the very anticipated match-up between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor at UFC 189. We had to rewind to watch it again when it came on. UFC President Dana White said it cost a fortune to put those chills that went down your spine when watching this.

“It’s the most expensive commercial we’ve ever shot, but without a doubt the most bad ass commercial we’ve ever done,” White told the media in a scrum.

The commercial was produced by Digital Domain which is a visual arts studio that has won several Academy Awards and has done special effects for Hollywood movies like Transformers. Music by Kanye West’s No Church in the Wild with Frank Ocean’s intro making for a spine tingling sixty seconds as both men square off in a deserted city scene.

(This story first appeared in Tuesday’s USA TODAY.)

He gets beaten up in the cage, announces his retirement while the bruises are still fresh, then changes his mind a few months later, only to repeat the painful cycle all over again.

But no more, Penn says. After suffering through an ugly, one-sided TKO loss at…
