It's all about wins and losses...
Dana White spoke with repoters in a media scrum following UFC Fight Night 40 about the return of Andrei Arlovski to the UFC and why Tim Sylvia isn't likely to follow. The reason basically boils down to wins and losses since they left the promotion.
Check out the highlights:
On Sylvia's social media campaign to get back into the UFC: "I heard. Tim Sylvia, I think he's 0-3-1 in his last four fights. It'd be tough to bring him in to the UFC with [that record] outside the UFC."
On Arlovski's return: "He's on a win streak. I like him. I have a lot of respect for him and his people. He left the UFC to go fight somewhere else. People think that because he did that, I have some – I never, ever fault somebody for trying to better their life, and he had a better deal. This ain't f—ing Bellator. A guy tries to better his life, we're not going to try to destroy the guy and sue him to death and hold up his career and do that."
