The UFC And Strikeforce Like Each Other

Dana WhiteHas there ever been another promotion that UFC President Dana White actually liked? Actually yes. He’s mentioned it before, but here he is again showing Strikeforce and their late Saturday night Strikeforce on NBC show some UFC love.

“I hope they do 10 million viewers next week. Have you heard me say a bad word about Strikeforce? I wish them all the luck in the world. I have nothing bad to say about guys who are running the right promotion.”

And guess what? Strikeforce likes the UFC too.

Says [Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike] Afromowitz: “We have nothing but admiration for what (White) has done. He’s overcome tremendous barriers. I’ve been in the sport for about 10 years, and I’ve watched UFC grow since Zuffa (White’s company) took it over.”

Aww, how sweet.

Of course, if Strikeforce actually ever makes the move to compete for some of the UFC’s market share all of White’s pleasantries will get thrown out the window for curse words and counter-programming.

Oh, and by the way, that day may come sooner rather than later.
