Dana White Says Strikeforce Alumni Are Impressing Him in the UFC
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.24.2013



Dana White spoke last night about Robbie Lawler's win over Josh Koscheck at UFC, the performance of the Strikeforce alumni since that promotion's folding and more. Check out the highlights:

On the bout: "The people were booing at the beginning of that fight. None of us like the up-against-the-fence bulls---. But those dudes were working. If you know wrestling and you know this sport, that was a war. That was a wrestling war between those two. That was fun. I liked that fight, and I liked that fight going into this fight."

On Lawler's return to welterweight: "He looks good at 170 pounds way better than he did at 185. He looked slow and lethargic and out of shape. He looked like he didn't give a s--- at 185. He looked like the old Robbie Lawler at 170 pounds."

On the Strikeforce alumni success in UFC: "Strikeforce had hungry fighters. These f---ing guys are hungry. Most of them haven't fought in a year. They didn't know what was going on with their career. Couldn't pay their bills. All this s---. Now they're in here and they know what it was like to be (over there). They're hungry, man. I love it. The Strikeforce kids, they're going to raise the bar on all these other guys."
