Dana White Comments on WWE Using the WWE Network Using Their Model to Broadcast Their Monthly PPVs
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.16.2014



Speaking to reporters at a post-fight media scrum following UFC Fight Night 35, UFC President Dana White talked about the company's goals and aims with the newly started digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Below are some highlights from the scrum:

White on the UFC putting up individual fights from defunct promotions such as Pride FC, Strikeforce, and WEC by March when the free trial ends: "Everything will be on there, and what we're going to do is, even though there's issues we're still going to put it up."

White on how strong the streaming video quality is: "I was on a mountain in Wyoming and I couldn't even get cell service, and I watched a fight from China in Wyoming without one glitch. No audio, no video glitch. It was awesome. The thing's just going to keep getting better, and wait until you see what we have for other stuff we're bringing into Fight Pass."

White's thoughts on WWE's own WWE Network and Vince McMahon's choice to use the WWE Network for their monthly PPV's, causing PPV distributors to threaten to not air the events: "(WWE head) Vince (McMahon) is a trailblazer. Look at the stuff he's done throughout his career with the WWE and where he's brought wrestling. Who knows, maybe that works for him. It doesn't make sense to me. He's an animal and he's a trailblazer. It's hard to doubt Vince when you see what he's done."

White on the benefits and potential of the network: "Thirteen years ago, when we bought this company, this is what we've been waiting for. We've been waiting for this for 13 years. I was saying in old interviews that this thing works all over the world. We're going to bring it to all these different places, and what do you think is going to happen when everything goes online? Millions of people from around the world can watch at the same time."
