Dana White’s “Presidential Address” on one of sports’ biggest superstars: “First of all, what [he] said, I think, was racist. He’s made a couple of racist comments. And yes, you’re racist with the stuff you’ve said. … you dummy. Don’t worry about what all these other guys are doing, and shooting your big mouth off on Twitter. … And I know I speak for millions and millions of other people. Shut up …”
“UFC Tonight” Analyst Kenny Florian on Edgar vs. Henderson: “I can’t wait for this fight. These are two aggressive, lightweights going at it. Edgar is very fast and aggressive. Henderson is from a great wrestling background. These are two very dangerous lightweights.”
Exclusive interview, Frankie Edgar on training for his upcoming fight: “It’s nice to be training for a different technique and different style. It’s refreshing training for someone different. I think I can’t beat myself. I’ve got a great training camp.”
Florian on the key to Edgar’s game: “He’s fast. He can get four punches off in less than two seconds. His footwork and his speed make him very dangerous.”
