DANA WHITE SAYS KOPPENHAVER AND ELITE XC/CBS DEAL NO BIG DEAL

Sorry, this took so long to post. Computer access has been a little tricky in Columbus.

Here is the audio from the Q & A portion of Thursday’s press conference.

I tried to cover the issues of War Machine’s future with the UFC after the booked was closed in his San Diego assault case. You can listen to that around the 10:55 mark. White says Koppenhaver seemed sorry for his mistake and he’s accepted the apology.

At the 5:30 mark, White addresses CBS + Elite XC and said it was no big deal. He knew it was coming and that Elite XC better be ready or it could be a disaster.  He also says Elite XC and HDNet are failing and viewership is dropping.  

Other Cofield observations..

*Not sure why the “media” is clapping at times during the conference

*White said this is the best 185 fight ever

*White is stoked to get Evan Tanner back

*Is Andrei Arlovski coming back? White says he wants him in the fold

*Cheick Kongo was a weirdo. Nervous? Focused? He had little to say

*Bud will be the sponsor on the center of the mat
