UFC Video: In-Depth Dana White Interview Talks His Vision For The Next 5 years

UFC president Dana White sits down with Marcus Kowal of Sweden's MMAnytt for a very interesting interview that cover's Dana's whole history with MMA in pretty serious detail.

Topics covered include:

  • How Dana and the Fertitta Brothers got into MMA, first as students of Jiu-Jitsu, then as promoters;
  • The business philosophy of the UFC: sport over spectacle;
  • How he works with UFC matchmaker Joe Silva;
  • Dana's unsuccessful efforts to book a Dan Henderson vs Mauricio "Shogun" Rua rematch;
  • The UFC's goals for the next five years (notably one of the key goals is letting people know that now they're on Fox, FX and Fuel);
  • Efforts to get the UFC regulated in New York, France and everywhere around the world;
  • The move from Spike TV to Fox;
  • Dana outlines his insane travel schedule at length;
  • Dana's plans to get everything "dialed-in" over the next two years so he can coast for the next five;
  • His plans to appear on every international edition of The Ultimate Fighter.

One last thing, Dana appears to reference this post from Headkick Legend at the 8 minute mark of the interview: The Peoples Prez: The Hectic Benevolence Of Dana White
