As UFC 230 decends upon the mixed martial arts world, UFC president Dana White is doing the media rounds, and on Thursday, that meant a stint on First Take on ESPN, which in 2019 becomes the new home of the UFC. 

White addressed a number of topics, including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor’s upcoming day of reckoning before the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Derrick Lewis’ short-notice return to the Octagon to fight Daniel Cormier for the heavyweight title, and the ifs, ands, and buts of Jon Jones’ legacy.
