In support of UFC 161 this Saturday, UFC President Dana White made his customary appearance at the "media scrum" session—a lengthy free-for-all Q&A with the MMA press—and it did not disappoint. The interview spanned over 30 minutes, with White covering topics ranging from this week's UFC 165: Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson headliner announcement, the new season of The Ultimate Fighter, and the power of social media. Here are some of the highlights with video courtesy of The Fight Network. —Carleton Curtis

ON FAIRWEATHER FANS
"We have a bunch of fans who like to bitch about sh-t."

ON FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS. SAUL ALVAREZ
"I think Floyd's too fast and too defensive for Canelo."

ON DESIGNING A SAFER UFC GLOVE
"There's no way we can cover the fingers. Guys just need to start closing their hands."

ON NEW YORK AS THE LAST MMA HOLDOUT
"I don't even wanna talk about New York anymore. Who gives a sh-t?"

ON THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER: ROUSEY VS. TATE
"Miesha and Ronda hate each other. It's literally crazy drama every day. It's Ken/Tito type stuff. I don't even know if some of that stuff will make TV."
