UFC President Dana White spoke during the UFC 178 post-fight show about Conor McGregor’s star power. Heres what he had to say:

“Conor McGregor is the real deal – he is legit. He is a force that I have never seen ever. Bigger than Brock Lesnar when he was here. Bigger than any of the fighters we’ve ever had. Yes, (he’s bigger than Georges St-Pierre). I’ve never seen anything like this. I’m a believer. He did exactly what he said he was going to do. Did I think Conor was going to win? I had no idea. Did I think he was actually going to go out and stop Poirier in the first round? I did not. This whole Conor McGregor thing has been very fascinating to me. (When) I went over to Ireland, I received that award from Trinity College, and literally all I heard was Conor McGregor the whole time I was over there. I came back here and I was like, ‘Who the hell is this kid? Let’s get this kid signed.’ So we signed him and he came out to Las Vegas, and we went and ate and hung out a little bit. I told (UFC CEO) Lorenzo (Fertitta), ‘If this kid can even fight this much, this much, if he can even throw a punch, this kid is going to be (something special).’ It’s bigger than anything I’ve ever seen before. It’s crazy. It’s bigger than anything I’ve ever seen. Was a nation behind GSP when GSP started? Let me tell you this. We’re way over (projections for UFC 178). The numbers, Lorenzo and I were talking about it, and we contribute it all to Conor McGregor.”

Donald Cerrone isn’t one to back down from a fight or stay on the sidelines for any amount of time so its no surprise that he wants a quick turnaround after his UFC 178 co-main event win over Eddie Alvarez last night.

During the post-fight press conference he said this:

“I, of course, want to stay very busy, so taking a fight on November or December would be great for me. Waiting? I don’t know. I want to fight.”

Conor McGregor Talks About How He’s Surrounded By “Rookies”

Following McGregor’s win on Saturday after knocking Poirier out in the first time in his UFC career he will likely gain himself a spot in the top five of the featherweight division rankings and there’s a high possibility of getting to face the winner of the upcoming UFC 178 main event between champion Jose Aldo and No. 1 contender Chad Mendes.

Dana White may not be ready to make the call yet but McGregor is already talking about what could happen. Heres what he had to say:

“At the end of the day as long as I show up and my check is what it says it’s going to be, then I’ll show up and kill whoever they put in front of me. Of course I want that gold belt. Don’t tell me that that gold belt sitting up right there on this table would not look great to go alongside this ivory elephant trunk suit that I’ve got on me right now, I know Dana wants to see it. I know Lorenzo (Fertitta) wants to see it. Shout out to Uncle Frank (Fertitta), I know he wants to see it. It’s what the fans want, it’s what I want. I said I was going to put him away in one round, no one’s ever knocked him out. No one has ever done that to Dustin before. He’s a great guy, I have nothing but respect for him. I don’t just knock them out — I also pick the round. I believe I will dismantle both of them, Chad’s a 5’6″ overblown, he should be a 135er, but he’s gone past that limit now. Now he’s just a little small bodybuilder that’s stuck in the 145-pound division, he gets tired quick. He’s 5’6″, a 65-inch reach, I have an eight-inch reach advantage on him, I would tower over him. So I’d maul Chad. Jose, again, I feel he’s in that pattern of deterioration, so again another easy win. The division seems to be full of rookies and has-beens. So I’m just enjoying myself, collecting these checks on my way, eliminating each one.”

The UFC’s return to Sweden has had another last minute change. According to sources unbeaten featherweight Charles Rosa has been signed to the UFC to face off against Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 53.

Just days ago it was announced that France’s Taylor Lapilus would replace Robert Whiteford against Siver, but it seems now that the Swedish MMA Federation wouldn’t let that fight happen. SMAFF President had this to say on the fight:

“The SMMAF has previously approved the match-up between Dennis Siver and Robert Whiteford for an event in Stockholm on Oct. 4 to be hosted by the American promoter UFC. Since then Mr. Siver’s opponent has withdrawn due to injury. On Sept. 24, the SMMAF received a formal request for a change of match for Mr. Siver and the request has not yet been processed. Reports in the media saying that the match is already approved is incorrect.”

UFC Fight Night 53 takes place Saturday, Oct. 4 from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. The entire fight card will stream live on the UFC’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass.
