Dana White Calls Roger Huerta A Moron (Audio Interview)

by:  Jack Bratcher

Dana White was on today’s edition of Drive This, a Hardcore Sports Radio daily program.  Dana was in the studio promoting UFC 87 on the Sirius Satellite radio station which also features such programs as Mauro Ranallo’s Fight Network Radio.  UFC 87, this Saturday, August 9th, headlines with a Middleweight Title Fight that has GSP defending his title against Jon Fitch.  Dana says it will be a hard fight for the Canadian; harder than many may think.  Also appearing on the card will be Brock Lesnar against Heath Herring and Roger Huerta versus Kenny Florian.  Dana says it’s going to be a hard fight for Lesnar as well.

As you can imagine, Dana has some thoughts about Roger Huerta and some of the recent comments he’s been making regarding his contract with the UFC and fighter pay.  First of all, Dana makes it a point for everyone to remember who built Roger Huerta.  Then Dana says he thinks Huerta has been reading the headlines about himself and maybe buying into his own hype too much.  He says Huerta must be thinking, “look at all the promotion I’m getting, I must be worth more money.  But he hasn’t fought anyone yet to get the money.  If he beats Kenny Florian, that’s a whole other ball game.  Now we can start talking.”
