UFC president Dana White says we’ve probably seen the last of Wanderlei Silva in the UFC.
Tito Ortiz claims he one-upped Jon Jones because he was able to stop Ryan Bader in the 1stRound.
Ortiz almost admits he’s made a lot of mistakes in his career and apologized to White for them. Their hatchet has officially been buried (allegedly).
Urijah Faber claimed he felt fine immediately after the fight, but said he felt like [s***] at the presser.
Melvin Guillard really wants to fight in Houston. The lightweight took White’s advice on getting his life together. He no longer parties or drinks.
Justin Beiber told White he thought Matt Wiman should’ve gotten the win. While UFC co-owner Lorezno Fertitta sided with Beibs, White gave the scrap to Siver.
