Dana White Talks About 2014 To Date: Been Impressive Run

Ronda Rousey

For UFC president Dana White, 2014 has been a year of impact performances so far.

White was recently asked during his weekly UFC Download interview what fighter has impressed him the most to date. And while the boss was unable to pinpoint on just one person, he explained that’s a good thing.

“It’s hard to pick one because there have been so many,” he said. “I’m totally blown away by Robbie Lawler. Not just on how he’s fought, but how many times he’s fought back-to-back.”

Lawler will face Matt Brown this Saturday night for a shot at the UFC welterweight title. Earlier this year, Lawler lost to Johny Hendricks in a bout to crown a new champion after Georges St-Pierre vacated the title.

“Coming off that Johny Hendricks fight, that five-round (expletive) dog fight war,” White said.

He continued, stating, “I’m very impressed with Ronda Rousey. She continues to get better and better. I’m impressed with Matt Brown and the win streak he’s on.”

White also noted Conor McGregor, T.J. Dillashaw and Donald Cerrone as having runs in 2014.
