White gives his thoughts on the card...
UFC President Dana White appeared on Fuel TV's post-fight show for UFC on Fuel TV 7 to give his thoughts on the card:
White on the card: "The prelims were awesome. We broke a record here, the biggest gate they've ever done. The fans seemed happy. So if they're happy, I'm happy."
White on Barao's performance: "What really impressed me was McDonald. McDonald has sharp hands, has fast hands, and Barao took some big shots from him early and kept his composure and really came back. I thought he looked like a real champ."
White on James Te Huna: "I didn't see it coming from him. I usually hate that stuff, but it was quick and he pulled it off. I'll admit I liked it. Te Huna has a hell of a chin and a hell of a heart. He was hurt bad in that first round, but came back and showed what he was made of."
White on his recent comments on Dominick Cruz: "At the press conference they said, when is he coming back? And I said, I don't know, hopefully soon. They asked if we would strip him of the title, and I said, no we wouldn't. Let's see what happens. Then I said if he gets another serious injury that puts him out over a year again, then I'd assume he'd consider retiring. You can't not work for three years and you can't sit on the belt for three years. That's what I said. Never did I say if he's gets hurt, he has to retire. If he got another serious injury again, he might look at retiring, not me saying he should."
White's thoughts on Cruz: "I love Dominick Cruz. He's a great champion and a hell of a kid, he works hard, and he's smart. At least FOX loves him. He's an analyst, and he can do other things too. I want to see him back here fighting Renan Barao for the championship."
