Nick Diaz Apologizes: Sorry He Didn’t Make The “Beauty Pageant”

Dana White had no other option than to pull Nick Diaz from his championship fight with Georges St-Pierre at UFC 137 when he decided not to show up for the press tour.

UFC steps into the mainstream with JDS-Cain on FOX

Dana White sounded just like a kid on Christmas morning as he announced the UFC's debut fight on the Fox network. The one hour prime time special will feature just one fight, a heavyweight title match-up between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
