White thinks Demetrious Johnson looks better and better...
UFC President Dana White appeared on Fox Sports Live last night to give his thoughts on last night's UFC on Fox 9 event. Below are some highlights and a video clip:
White on Demetrious Johnson and his knockout victory: "The kid looks better and better every time he fights. It's an explosive and exciting division. Nobody will be talking smack about it now. The fights have been unbelievable. I don't know how he won't get respect now."
White on Faber's victory: "He reminds me of Vitor Belfort, the older he gets, the better he gets. He's the number-one contender in the division now."
White on Georges St-Pierre taking a leave of absence: "He didn't walk away. He's going to come back. He has some things he has to handle. He did the classy thing and vacate the title. He did the right thing. He's going to be gone a while. Somebody will win that belt and then he'll be back."
White on what happened with trying to make Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz for UFC 171: "I was going to do Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz and Nick doesn't want the fight. He's not thinking about a fighting right now. Maybe he'll come back in May. I've got to figure out what to do with Condit now."
