    I didn't have time to do a transcript so this is just me paraphrasing or adding cliff notes to Dana White's crazy-as-usual full interview on TSN today; (Added the full audio over at soundcloud, source at the bottom of the page)

    • On the tone deaf optics of having Rachael Ostovich and Greg Hardy on the same card

    Greg Hardy will absolutely remain on the card, he has rehabilitated himself and rebuilt his life. Rachael is totally cool with this. Rachael gave me 75 reasons why she needed to be on this fight, if you want to make it an issue you can make it and issue but this is NOT an issue with Rachael and that is all that matters to me.

    Adds that Hardy didn't do ANYTHING to Rachael Ostovich so it doesn't matter anyways, different story and that the UFC has her complete support because she believes in second chances and her story is not his story.

    • On moving Dillashaw/Cejudo from UFC 233 and into UFC Brooklyn

    We've been working on all these cards and moving people around, this was perfect, absolute perfect time for the fight.

    • On whether Dillashaw/Cejudo could save the division

    Listen I don't know, we are going to China and Mexico, building performance institute after performance institute and we are going to find ALOT of smaller people, men and women OK? and who knows, we'll see how this thing plays out... If someone turns into a huge star maybe, who knows...

    • On Woodley nursing an injury and 'refusing' to fighting

    Listen, just tell me when Woodley wants to fight, this is always an issue with Woodley, UFC is going to move on because the division is stacked and it doesn't matter whether Woodley fights or not, yes there could be an interim title.

    • On Colby Covington not taking the big opportunities and missing his shot

    I could care less what Colby's reservations are, you either want to be a world champion or you don't, and if you get an opportunity in this business you need to take it IMMEDIATELY. He shoulda took it, he didn't it, we'll see what happens with him, shoulda taken the opportunity when he had the chance.

    • On Joanna and Shevchenko

    This was the fight to make, we didn't rush it, it's the fight that needs to happen.

    • On Max Holloway and Brian Ortega

    I love everything about this fight, biggest win streak in the division BOTH STUDS

    • On rumors that this is the last season of 'The Ultimate Fighter'

    No, listen, we are not scheduled for another season on TV but will continue to do the ultimate fighter and put it on fight pass, maybe it will be on TV maybe not, who knows, we'll see...

    • On Chuck, Tito and Oscar De La Hoya

    They were in over their heads when they started, Oscar De La Hoya is not a very bright guy, and Tito *laughs* let's not even talk about Tito. I felt bad for Dhuck dealing with those two dummies, it is what it is you know? Chuck is a grown man and can do what he wants, I did talk to him, he is grown.

    • On Zuffa Boxing

    I've been taking my time and doing the right moves, I AM GETTING INVOLVED IN BOXING and will not do it like Oscar did, I will not dive in headfirst, it will not be the disaster that was Chuck vs. Tito. At the end of the day I can do a better job than they do, all of them at boxing.

    • On whether UFC should move away from the PPV model

    We have nothing but stacked cards to fill up every PPV, why would we be going away from the PPV model when we are still killing it and having the biggest PPVs in the history of PPVs EVER. Listen, YOU let ME worry about that OK?

    • On whether he feels betrayed by Sage Northcutt leaving the UFC

    Listen, this wasn't the Sage Northcutt decision to leave on his own, this was a decision on BOTH SIDES, it was the right thing and right move for him and me, he is going to do well financially yeah, but listen I can keep anyone I want to keep OK? This was the right move for both of us, definitely the right move for him, definitely the right move for me, I like the kid, great move by both of us.

    • If he thinks there is a great Canadian talent out there that can be champion

    I can't think of anyone off the top of my head, can't answer that question. GSP is not interested in fighting, he is sitting back thinking about his perfect fights and that is just not what we do.

    • On the rumored 165lb division

    Not even thinking about it, not gonna happen, absolutely false.

    Still taking shots at Georges....

    That's how you thank your former PPV king Dana?
    22 fights in the UFC, 16 were Titles fights.

    Go F*ck yourself bald goof....

    Wait, wasn't Romero supposed to headline the first Espn card? He says Cejudo/Dillashaw has been moved from UFC 233 to headline the Espn card instead.

    An interim title for the guy who defended 3 months ago? And has the most defences out of ALL current champions.

    While some are literally chilling.

    An absolute JOKE

    The 165 lb division will probably be added. Why not move welterweight to 175? It only makes sense.

    It probably sucks for Dana right now with no few PPV stars to promote.

    DC is retiring soon, Conor has 2-3 fights left, Jones's reputation is tarnished and is looking at boxing, no female superstar to promote.

    “GSP is not interested in fighting, he is sitting back thinking about his perfect fights and that is just not what we do.“

    Wow he does not even try to cover his own BS. That is exactly what you do and have done.

    This was a good interview for Dana. I agree with him on almost everything for once.

    He just fucked his hand up fighting Till less than 90 days ago and has fought 4 times in within 12 months.

    Where was his bitching when Conor wasn't fighting? It's just Dana being a hypocrite as always.
