WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Canada
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
