UFC president Dana White was all over the New York City media scene on Tuesday promoting the release of THQ's UFC 2009: Undisputed video game. One of his last stops was at the Nasdaq MarketSite at Times Square to ring the Nasdaq Stock Market closing bell, and that's where FanHouse caught up with White to talk about the video game, this weekend's UFC 98 event and ESPN's controversial E:60 story on him.
