Dana White Thinks Overeems Injury Will Be Gone Once Junior Has A New Opponent

UFC President, Dana White this week said that he expects the Overeems rib injury to clear up as soon as Junior dos Santos has a new opponent.

Dana, speaking to reporters on Thursday said:

“I have a feeling this rib injury is going to last as long as it takes for dos Santos to get another opponent. That’s what I’m willing to bet. This is going to be the longest rib injury ever. As soon as we get dos Santos a fight that rib is going to heal right up. You say you want to be the best in the world? You want to be the world champion? This is the No. 1 guy. This is the guy. This is the f–king gatekeeper. You beat this guy, nobody is going to question you. Shouldn’t he be chomping at the bit for a fight like that? Especially when you told us how much money you deserve and how you’re going to be the next champ.”

“[Overeem] marches his f–king ass in here, tells us how much he’s worth. He’s worth all this money, he’s the best heavyweight in the world, he’s going to be the champion, and he doesn’t want to f–king fight anybody. I bet you his f–king rib wouldn’t be hurting if we got Brock Lesnar, bet you his rib would be fine. … Did anybody hear anything about a rib injury until I offered him dos Santos two different ways? You guys come to whatever conclusion you want to on that, I know what the truth is.”
