Ariel Helwani caught up with UFC president Dana White for an extended interview following UFC On Fuel Wednesday night, discussing a slew of topics related to the card itself, Nick Diaz's situation and the political issues around it and his thoughts on a former UFC champion trying to get back in the Octagon.
Here are some of the topics covered in the 11-minute clip, one of the better ones Helwani and White have done in recent events:
- The future of both Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez
- Whether five round fights on Fuel will now be mandatory
- What he would do if he was Carlos Condit
- His thoughts on the Omaha, Nebraska, crowd
- Dave Herman's week and what drove him nuts about his entrance song
- Aaron Simpson, Ronny Markes and not being "the blur"
- A rant against the Nevada State Athletic Commission and "being consistent about being inconsistent"
- What White has said to Diaz about marijuana use
- UFC Japan and if there will be any nod toward PRIDE on that show
- His thoughts on Tim Sylvia
