VIDEO: UFC President Dana White Talks FOX Deal, Programming, Travelling & More

UFC president Dana White sat down for an extended interview with Marcus Kowal of MMAnyytt to talk about the organizations goals for the coming years, international expansion, the amount of traveling the UFC president has done so far this year and much, much more.

On People Not Knowing About The FOX Deal
How many people that I still talk to on Twitter that have no idea we are on FOX, FX or FUEL…it’s crazy man, it’s crazy.

On The Development Of Programming In The Coming Years
In the next five years I will have this sh*t so dialed in that we will be coasting, coasting.

On The Amount Of Travelling He Has Done This Year
Since the beginning of this year I’ve travelled more than an NBA team would all season, a major league baseball team will all season or the NFL. I’ve already put more miles out – over 40,000 miles three weeks ago in flights.

    Holy crap. Dana is a beast with all that travelling. You would have to imagine his body and mind is going to break down at some point.

    Two straight years of endless travel can’t be healthy. Here’s hoping he can find a better way to make it work.

      At this point, I’m pretty sure that the UFC would save a lot of trouble if FOX could pick up the slack on some of the production across all the networks.

      Still, the real problem is that Dana White personally likes to oversee every broadcast event that he can. At some point, he’s going to need a second promoter to help him out.
