Dana White Slams Press Over Claims of UFC’s Slow 2017: “Best Year Ever!”

(Subscribe to MMAWeekly.com on YouTube)

When a reporter at the UFC 217 Post-Fight Press Conference questioned UFC president Dana White about the off year his company was having, he was incredulous.

“Whose indications (that pay-per-views are slumping) are that? People who don’t know what the (expletive) they’re talking about,” White said.

“If you don’t know what’s going on in our business, how can you speculate that we’re having a bad year? This is the best year, by a long shot, in the company’s history. Boom!”

Dana White UFC 217 angryThough the company has reportedly had several pay-per-views that have struggled to reach more than 200,000 to 300,000 sold, White wasn’t discounting the importance of the Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match. It may not have been MMA, and it may not have had UFC as the primary promoter, but it’s an event that the UFC dumped numerous resources into making happen, which they received revenue from.

“You can’t take that out; it happened,” White said. “And if that didn’t happen, Conor would have fought twice this year. You can’t take it out. Who cares if it’s a boxing match? It’s revenue that the company made that we spent four months of our resources promoting.”

The company, at least on the MMA side, frequently found itself without its top stars throughout 2017, but White said that didn’t matter.

“Ronda (Rousey) didn’t fight, Conor didn’t fight in MMA, Jon Jones fought once, and Anderson Silva, Chuck Liddell… the list goes on and on and on. The business is kicking ass. Best year ever, by a long shot.”

Two Bouts Added to UFC Fight Night Winnipeg

Two new bouts have been added to the Dec. 16 fight card in Winnipeg, Canada. UFC officials announced on Tuesday that a pair of light heavyweight contenders and two rising welterweights have been added to the UFC on FOX 26: Lawler vs. Dos Anjos event at Bell MTS Place.

Jared Cannonier (10-2) was expected to face Brazilian legend Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, but Nogueira was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test. Instead, Cannonier will face No. 14 ranked Jan Blachowicz (20-7) in a 205-pound scrap.

Jan Blachowicz - UFC weigh-inBlachowwicz is coming off a Performance of the Night submission win over Devin Clark in his last outing on Oct. 21. Cannonier last fought in July, finishing Nick Roehrick by TKO.

Former TUF Nations finalist Sheldon Westcott (9-3-1) will take on England’s Danny Roberts (14-2) in welterweight action. Westcott last fought in January 2016 and will be looking to make up for lost time when he steps into the Octagon with the Englishman. Roberts is hoping to build on his knockout win over Bobby Nash in July against the Canadian in Canada.
