Dana White Says Zuffa Didn't Buy Strikeforce In Order to Shut it Down
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.28.2012



Dana White recently spoke with MMAjunkie about Strikeforce's impending closure and more. Check out the highlights:

On rumors that Zuffa always planned to kill Strikeforce: "I see a lot of this s--- on the Internet, people saying, 'Oh, I knew this is exactly what we knew was going to happen. They bought (Strikeforce) to bury it.' Any of you guys who were around me at the time know that was absolutely not the plan. I was pumped up about it and looking forward to getting into it."

On his struggles with Showtime over the promotion: "I'm still not the guy (in charge). I could keep you here for four and a half hours and you'd go crazy you'd have some real good stuff. I'm so glad it's over."

On the purchase of the promotion: "None of the companies we've bought have been perfect except the WEC. The WEC was a great move, a great transition. Everything worked out great with that. All the other ones, they were what they were."

On whether he'll ever by another promotion again: "It would depend I'd never say never on that."
