With UFC on Fox 7 coming up on April 20th, UFC bossman Dana White held a conference call for reporters with Lightweight champ Ben Henderson, challenger Gilbert Melendez, Strikeforce Heayvweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier and former heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

MMA Mania's Brian Hemminger live blogged it, here are some highlights:

Daniel Cormier: We're all UFC fighters now. I don't feel like I'm carrying any weight on my shoulders to carry the Strikeforce organization. I don't feel any pressure. I will fight like I normally do.

Gilbert Melendez: I'd love to avenge my friend Nate Diaz and represent my team.

Dana White: If we end up doing one of these superfights, Cowboy Stadium is what we're looking at. The super fights all involve George St. Pierre, Anderson Silva or Jonny Bones.

Dana White: We were blown away by Jordan Mein. That's why he got this fight against Matt Brown.

Dana White on Matt Mitrione: It's one of those things it's just a pain in the ass. He didn't even need to be doing an interview. The only time these guys need to be doing interviews is leading up to fights. It ended up being a nightmare for him. What was the point of that interview? What's the point of it. It's causing all these problems for no reason whatsoever. What was the point of doing that interview. What was the upside to that interview? There was none. No upside.

Gilbert Melendez on possibly bringing home a title to the Cesar Gracie gym: I hope to win the title for my team. I really try not to put too much pressure on myself again. I try to fight my fight. I think it's a great accomplishment for my team to get title fights. It's an accomplishment for the team and I'd love to bring the title back to the gym and share it with those guys but it's no added pressure.

Dana White: We're working on China, India, Russia and Canada for international seasons of TUF.
