11 Famous Actors and Their Embarrassing Early Film Roles

Saddest/Truest Quote of the Day

Dana White, during a UFC 80 press conference today:

“Look at the NFL. There’s nothing bigger in this country than the NFL. They’ve been spending billions of dollars trying to break into Europe and they can’t do it, because nobody gives a (expletive) about football in Europe. They didn’t grow up playing football, they don’t know about it. I take two guys and put them in the Octagon and they can use any martial art they want. It translates through all different cultural barriers, language barriers… people love fighting.”

In other words, the thing that drives us apart will be the very thing that unites us. I kinda like that. Can that be the tagline for Red Devil?

During the press conference, White announced that the UFC would be doing an event in Scotland as soon as possible, and is working to get events authorized in New York and Hawaii. He also described the Matt Serra-hosted UFC 79 viewing party at Madison Square Garden as “a very successful event.” I’d love to get independent confirmation of that claim, but I haven’t been able to find anything online. If you or someone you know attended the MSG party, holler at us and let us know what it was like. We’re guessing “poorly attended and awkward” — is that about right?
