"You're either lucky or you're not." – Dana White
- Dana White recently spoke about the injury issues in the UFC. Here are the highlights…
On Injury Issues in the UFC: "This year has been great for us, coming off the worst year we've ever had. I'm glad (2012) happened. I'm glad we went through that last year. Because if you would've told me before that was possible, I'd have said that's impossible. You're crazy – there's no way that many people can get hurt consecutively.
On UFC's Staying Power: "How about Calgary? An entire card got wiped out, and then half the second card got wiped out," White said. "I just would have never believed that could happen. Now I know it can happen, I know it is possible, and if there was ever a testament to all the naysayers about the validity of the UFC as a sport and the fact we have staying power, that year proved it."
On Luck Playing a Factor: "You're either lucky or you're not," White told MMAjunkie.com. "This year, we're lucky. Last year, we're not. Even when bad things happen, we slide Pettis in there, and it ends up Pettis-Henderson, in (Pettis') hometown, and that was a great fight, too."
