UFC president Dana White spoke Saturday night about Brock Lesnar’s loss to Cain Velasquez. Check out the highlights:

On what Lesnar’s loss means for the company: “It’s not about that. This is fight business. Whoever wins, wins. I don’t look at how he is a huge draw and we should do this or that.”

On Brock’s difficulty with striking: “He has been working with guys on his striking. It’s one of those things where Brock has fought, what, five times now in the UFC? We’ve seen fights where he’s standing up and … he doesn’t look like he’s going to win a boxing title any time soon, but his standup looks good when he’s throwing punches and landing. When he’s getting hit, that’s when his hands start to fall apart.”

On whether the loss will bring Lesnar back earlier than planned: “I personally think the competitive side of him is going to come out. We’ll see what happens. Brock and I have been fighting a lot over the last month and a half. We’ll see how it goes after this.”

On whether Lesnar’s lost value in the UFC: “This is mixed martial arts, and every dog has his day. Tonight was his day. I think people are always going to be interested in Brock, and I think a lot of people are going to be interested in Cain now, too. It’s just the sport. It’s the way it goes. I honestly never even think about stuff like that. Just like when people talk about Frankie Edgar – ‘Oh no, Frankie Edgar.’ Frankie Edgar is badass. He beat B.J. Penn. People either feel it or they don’t, and you know what my philosophy on that is. If you don’t, don’t [expletive] watch it.”
