Dana White Discusses Zuffa Sale, Brock Lesnar's Health, Edgar vs. Penn, More

MMA Fighting spoke to Dana White Tuesday about Flash Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi government, purchasing a stake in Zuffa, the parent company of UFC and WEC. White talked about what this transaction means for the future of the organization, how it all came about it, and why he and his partners, Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, eventually pulled the trigger.

White also announced that the UFC will hold a press conference to announce Brock Lesnar's health status and his future in MMA. He added that Frankie Edgar, not Gray Maynard, will face BJ Penn for the lightweight title next and that he hoped to see Anderson Silva fight at UFC 112 as well. Check out the video interview below.
