Dana White does not appear fazed by the UFC's apparent lack of star power; in fact, he believes the promotion is doing better than ever before.
The UFC President went on Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones, where he discussed a variety of topics including the supposed "star crisis" the promotion is facing in 2014.
Instead of answering the question directly, White chose to offer up the same rehearsed line that he has preached over the past few months:
"We're putting on more fight than we have ever put on, and in more countries than we have ever put them in. We had a live event on broadcast television the other night and are No. 1 in all key demo [graphics]. We continue to charge on."
The duo proceeded to grill White for more information and insisted that he respond to the question directly.
"I know what you just asked me, and I told you that you are wrong," White responded. "You are absolutely wrong. It is not the case. We are actually putting on more fights than we have ever put on and the sport is continuing to grow."
Once again, Le Batard insisted on a more direct response, to which Dana said:
"Johny Hendricks just fought Robbie Lawler and the thing sold out with a massive gate down there and did very well on PPV. Quit reading the Internet. If you are going to ask me questions, ask questions that are true."
There you have it. Just another Dana White interview.
