Dana White Surprised By Ratings And Says The Fights Will Get Better On TUF 10

New, 7 comments

It seems as if UFC president Dana White can't understand why people tune in to watch Kimbo Slice fight.  White said he was blown away by the record ratings for the third episode of TUF 10:

“These numbers are beyond huge,” White said. “I’m blown away. I honestly am blown away. I knew it was going to be big. This is massive. Do you understand how significant these numbers are, getting more viewers than CBS?  It’s hard to say why, but some people have it and some don’t, and Kimbo definitely does."

“It’s a really good season,” White said. “The fight (between Slice and Nelson) sucked. I wasn’t happy with any of the fights the first three weeks, to be honest. I was disappointed by the way we came out of the gate in terms of the fights. But the fights really get better. By episode 8, believe me when I tell you, you’re going to be going wild.”

“Hang in there, man,” White said when asked if Slice were going to fight for the UFC in December. “The season’s not over yet. Stay tuned is all I’ll tell you.”

This could be one of two things from Dana White:

1.  He's in all out promoter form with the last two statements

2.  The fights do actually get better. 

I agree that none of the fights up to this point have been spectacular, so I mean they could only get better right?
