Dana White at UFC 144
Both Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Lyoto Machida came away with impressive victories to cap off UFC on Fox 4, but ultimately Dana White opted to give the next title shot to Machida.

Why did White make the decision for Machida over Shogun?

Check out the video below to hear what the UFC President has to say about it:

    EXACTLY…short, sweet, and to the point. If True, can’t argue with that…


  • longtime fan

    I’d like to see shogun and Rashad fight then.

  • elguapo

    No doubt at all who deserves the shot after those fights.

    …Shogun has not been terorizing me about a title shot. Dana White

    Well if I was Weidman, I would call Dana White every day, sending him tons of text message to terorize him in giving me a title shot.

    Apart from that, everything he said makes perfect sense!! Man I love the UFC!!!!
