UFC president Dana White is in Ireland this week for a two-day stay in Dublin prior to this weekend’s UFC event in London, England.
White has been invited to the city’s Trinity College, an old and very respected university, to receive an honorary award for his services to the sport of mixed martial arts. While there, he invited fans to join him in the pub on Monday night. “I’m buying the pints,” he tweeted.
During the chit-chat that ensued, White allegedly told one fan that the UFC is looking at staging a heavyweight double-bill on the UFC 160 card. One fight would feature Antonio Silva rematching Cain Velasquez, the other would have Alistair Overeem against Junior Dos Santos.
Of course, at the end of the day its just a post from a random UFC fan in Dublin so it should maybe be taken with a pinch of salt. On the other hand, if you can’t trust things a drunken Irishman tells you while he is full of Guinness, is this a world you really want to live in?
