Below, you can find White’s comments from the UFC on ESPN 52 post-fight press conference.

Tom Aspinall wants Jon Jones stripped of title

“The Stipe fight has to happen. Both of those guys deserve it. You have the greatest mixed martial artist of all time vs. the greatest heavyweight of all time. They’ve paid their dues, they’ve done their things. These two want to fight each other, and it’s going to happen. Whoever wins, we’ll see what they decide to do after that, and then we’ll go from there.”

Arman Tsarukyan’s hotel altercation with Bobby Green

“I’ve been on the road for like two weeks, so I think I found out when I was in Boston. Sh*t happens, man. Somebody caught that on film and it got out. You guys have no idea how much sh*t goes behind the scenes. It’s only the stuff that ends up leaking and getting out.

“This is the business we’re in. We’re in the tough guy business where some of the toughest human begins on earth run into each other backstage, things are said and things are done. It’s our job to manage and control all that stuff and make sure that it doesn’t blow up and get out of proportion and people don’t get hurt. We deal with this every Saturday on some sort of level.”

“Taking the fight on nine days’ notice, incredible night for him. Yeah, I guarantee – I mean, it’s up to you guys – but No. 13 vs. No. 12. No. 12 beats No. 13, but I’d say he moves up in the rankings the way he finished that fight tonight. It was a great night for him. Rough week, but a great night.”

“Tonight was a big night for him. I don’t know how you guys felt, but I know a lot of people felt Rob Font was too big for him and hits too hard for him, and he went out and looked great tonight.”

Clay Guida’s 62nd professional fight

“I was literally saying to (Joe) Rogan during the fight, ‘How about the chin on him still.’ The wars that guy has been in, and he still has a chin and is still willing to mix it up and stand in the pocket and trade. He looked great tonight, especially against a young, well-rounded stud like Silva.”
