Dana White Says He Was Miserable Over Fedor, Speaks on UFC Negotiations

Source: Sherdog

– Dana White has made some new comments about the failed negotiations between the UFC and Fedor Emelianenko.

“This is going to happen,” White said he told UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta. “It’s going to happen today. We’re going to make this thing happen.”

“I was f—ing miserable, miserable…because we couldn’t make this deal. I was so confident we were going to get this done because we were willing to do it. We were willing to make a deal at almost any cost. People from other countries just don’t walk in and jump in business with the Fertitta brothers. There has to be full background checks and all kinds of crazy sh-t. It doesn’t work that way. It’s impossible; it will never happen.”

“He got offered a f—ing assload of money. A ton of money, everything he wanted. He can go fight in sambo every f—ing Thursday night if he wants to. He can do everything he wanted to. We showed them nothing but respect. It’s insanity to turn down a deal like this. To turn down a deal like this, you don’t care about proving you’re the best in the world. You don’t want to fight the best in the world. You don’t care about money. How do you deal with something like that?”

  • Wrestling/MMA GAWD!

    Im starting to think Fedor cares more for his overall MMA record than competing with the best MMA has to offer i think he’s scared in UFC he knows he’ll lose and won’t be as praised as much as he is he’s taking the highroad by signing with Strikeforce which as SHITTY fighters IF FUCKING DANA WHITE SAID HE COULD FIGHT IN SAMBO IF HE WANTED TO THEN WHY DIDNT HE SIGN TO UFC? ISNT THAT WHAT HE WANTED? that right there shows he is a fucking coward FUCK FEDOR
