Jul 14, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
As noted earlier, Dana White conducted a conference call talking about the UFC 133 main event change.
- “I did not expect that from Lyoto Machida (asking for Anderson Silva type money). Tito didn’t ask for more money,” said White.
- “I wish I had this Tito Ortiz seven years ago,” White said. “It’s an interesting cool thing on how Tito’s turning things around.”
- Dana said option C was Matyushenko.
- White on Rashad’s take on possible opponents for UFC 133: I don’t care who you get. White said Evans didn’t need to approve an opponent.
- For Davis, he needs rehab and rest, but doesn’t require surgery.
- “It’s the perfect fight for Tito Ortiz,” said White.
