UFC President Dana White Introduces MMA to Germany

Dana White's latest UFC 96 video blog shows him addressing the German media, officially announcing UFC 99, which will take place in Germany on June 13.

"There's this perception of Ultimate Fighting that it's gruesome and brutal and dangerous and barbaric and these guys just rolled in off bar stools," White said. "It couldn't be further from the truth. Some of the mixed martial artists I've met over the past 12 years are some of the greatest people I've met and some of the most educated people I've met."

White later complains that the German reporters asked him nothing but negative questions. I would expect fairly negative treatment of the UFC in Germany, where boxing is very popular and some might see MMA as encroaching on boxing's turf.

Bonus: We get to see Wanderlei Silva do his Borat impression.
