Dana White Says He's Glad Other Bantamweights Are Stepping Up
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.31.2012



MMA Junkie spoke with both Eddie Wineland (20-8-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and Dana White about Wineland's win over Brad Pickett at UFC 155. Picket won by split decision. Two judges voted 30-27 while Mark Smith gave it to Picket 29-28.

Wineland on his split decision: "You never know what the judges are going to see. I don't like to let it go three rounds just for that simple fact. I feel that it was unanimous on my side, but they may see something different than you see or anyone else sees."

Wineland on if he wants a bantamweight title shot: "I see myself wherever they want to put me. Yeah, I'd like a shot at the belt. But keep me fighting and keep me happy. Wherever they want to put me."

White on the Wineland/Pickett fight: "I'm a huge Pickett fan. But (Wineland) looked good tonight. Pickett's a tough guy, and he stays in the pocket. He keeps throwing. He keeps moving forward no matter what you hit that kid with, and Eddie fought a perfect fight tonight and beat him."

White on the bantamweight division: "It's awesome – it's great. Nobody's had more bad luck than (Cruz) has. But we've got guys who can keep the division cracking and keep it exciting until we can settle that."
