Dana White: Financial crisis helps our business

UFC president Dana White and co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta say America's troubled economy actually helps the UFC.

"I think we're fortunate from a business perspective because while everybody seems to be suffering, we're actually up, significantly over here, " Fertitta told "Because at the end of the day, we're still a cheap form of entertainment. People still want to be entertained even in bad economic times."

White agreed, explaining that a group of friends can chip in for a pay-per-view and "its a cheap night of entertainment where everybody can hang out and have a good time and kind of forget about what's going on here economically in the United States."

The prices for UFC pay-per-views are currently $44.95 for standard definition and $54.95 for high-definition.
