[VIDEO] Dana White Talks Edgar/Henderson Rematch and TUF 15′s Dakota Cochrane

UFC President Dana White recently sat down with Spencer Lazara among others for a brief interview, and among the topics to come up was that of a possible Frankie Edgar/Ben Henderson rematch. Edgar, who lost his belt to Henderson at UFC 144, has been bombarding White with talks of a rematch since losing the belt, despite the fact that Dana has outwardly stated a desire for Edgar to drop to 145 and face Jose Aldo. When asked if there was any update on the rematch, DW had the following to say:

No, not yet. Frankie Edgar‘s manager has been blowing me up for the last two days. I know he flew to Las Vegas and met with Lorenzo. They thought I was going to be there too, but I’m not. Frankie owes me a phone call. I called Frankie again yesterday and he didn’t answer so we’ll see what happens.

When asked if Dana was growing discouraged with Edgar’s persistence, White was quick to commend the former champ:

Frankie Edgar has given every guy a rematch that we said deserved a rematch. Again, my only beef is, with him being at a higher weight class, you have these decisions that are so narrow that people are on both sides of the fence. I’d rather see him at 145.

I mean, look at these guys at 125. Benavidez said it tonight, he said, ‘Listen, I used to crack guys at 135 pounds, and it was tough to put them away at that bigger weight class.’ What do you think Frankie Edgar’s going to do? Everybody thinks there’s no competition for Jose Aldo. I disagree…and I’d like to see [Edgar] go there. 

As we all know, it has recently been revealed that The Ultimate Fighter 15 cast member Dakota Cochrane came from a somewhat controversial background, which has in turn caused quite an uproar in the MMA world as of late. According to DW, this controversy was not unexpected, as they were aware of Cochrane’s past before they booked him on the show:

Of course I knew. Listen, the kid’s a fighter. He did what he did. He didn’t break any laws, he didn’t do anything illegal. When we do background checks on guys, we look for stuff that’s illegal, we look for criminal stuff, we look for stuff we just don’t like. You can have your own opinion of him…but the kid’s a fighter, he’s got a good record, and he’s earned his way into The Ultimate Fighter.

Well, at least they perform background checks. We’re looking at you, Strikeforce.

I guess old Dakota let his cat out of the bag a little prematurely. Too bad, I was wanting to see the drama it created when they had a gay porn star in the TUF house.

It's a known fact that Dana White is a misogynist and just look at that head.... of course he likes gay porn.

I am getting sick of the logjam at 155 because the UFC has grown soft and suddenly cares for fighters that lose close decisions...

He called Frankie? And the Answer didn't answer? Frankie "The Callback" Edgar?

So Dana doesn't mind if you do gay porn.

So Chandella got fired for what exactly??
Being nude.

Dana doesn't mind guys banging each other, but doesn't like Girls naked.

@ CCman and BAGHDADBOB, LOL you guys rocked it.

Good to hear that gay porn is not on the list of things Dana White doesn't like.

These hot then not chicks fighting are maddening. Tate was hot in a photo shoot, live I wouldn't buy her a drink after the hummer in my car. Roused looks good next to her but I have 50 employees that are probably hotter live.
As for Hendo getting a title shot, who else should at this point? No matter who wins? 205 is just that jacked up at this point. If they did a double elimination tournament at LHW it would go in a circle for contenders.

Why is Hendo guaranteed a title shot, again?

Unfortunately, Dakota Cochrane will always have a target on his back. And I bet if you aim your load just right you can hit a bullseye.

Bonnar looks like he just took a big fat dump in his board shorts

Glad to hear that Dan Henderson is waiting for the winner of the "Evans and Rashad" fight. Was that a Fruedian slip by DW or has Bones been instructed to take a dive? Also, we never landed on the moon and there were multiple shooters in the grassy knoll.

Geez, none of them could figure out how to do the shaka?!?

That blonde at the begining of this video is a f@#cking butter-face. Yuck - her face looks like a "Garbage Pail Kid"
