UFC president Dana White did an interview with Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting after yesterday's UFC 137 pre-fight press conference, and touched on a few interesting topics. He spent a few minutes discussing a some of the combatants on tomorrow's card (most notably mentioning that Nick Diaz missed his initial flight to Vegas, but caught the next one), but the only real piece of UFC 137 "news" that he talked about was something that he had already said at the press conference - Georges St. Pierre's next opponent will be Carlos Condit, regardless of tomorrow's outcome between B.J. Penn and Nick Diaz. He also said Nick would be in line for a future title shot, but wasn't sure about Penn.
The most interesting stuff he had to say was in regards to Strikeforce and Bellator. He stated that he met with Showtime regarding the Strikeforce contract being renewed, and it went "very well". He also went on a long rant about how the UFC is not a monopoly, and the Bellator sale proves that, even though Bellator isn't competition to him. I'd normally spit out some quotes for you, but his description of each matter is a bit long and convoluted, and definitely comes off better out of his mouth than it does written out.
