Following Saturday’s UFC on Fox 3 event, Dana White was all smiles and caught up with Ariel Helwani for a few minutes for Fuel TV to recap why he was so happy.
A few of the highlights from the short talk:
- White said it was tough for anyone to complain about the event like they have for past Fox shows. “Tonight was the perfect night,” he said.
- He said the fights went just as he expected, except for for Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller. He commented that the show format was running over by 35 minutes but the finish saved the day.
- White said that Diaz has always been talented and that moving around to lightweight and welterweight has been good for him. He said Diaz is waiting for the title shot and they’ll have to figure out what to do with Anthony Pettis.
- He expects Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson II for either August or September.
