UFC 136 Press Conference Highlights
If you didn’t get to watch the Press conference live, here are a few of the highlights. Well at least a few of my favorite highlights. They aren’t direct quotes, just recaps of what was asked and answered.
The UFC Press Conference for UFC 136 featuring Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard in a rematch of their last draw and a Featherweight Title fight between Kenny Florian and Jose Aldo (the reigning Champ).
It started with some rambling stupid questions, like asking if Edgar and Maynard who was more motivated to fight. Brilliant.
Any and all questions about Chael bring a smirk to Dana White’s face and chuckles from the audience of journalists.
Does Guillard get a title shot if he beats Lauzon? Dana says it will be difficult to determine, alluding to the notion he may get the next shot. Interesting.
Lots of questions about how big MMA is, then the correlation with Boxing.
What’s next for the UFC was asked
UFC Rio is next, 350k people tried to get tickets for 14k arena. He’s meeting with leaders in Brazil and scouting all the cities for more events.
Dana avoided answering questions about the FOX deal.
All in all, it was a fast press conference with more promotion than actual information.
Rumble young man Rumble.
