Dana White chatted with Carlos Arias from the Keep Punching blog.  Here are some excerpts:

On the UFC's plans to hold an event in Mexico:

"It's going good, actually. We could end up pulling off something this year in Mexico City. We're working on that right now. It's almost ... I don't want to say, 'Yeah, we're doing it.' But pretty much we're doing it.

On if Cain Velasquez would end up on that Mexico City card:

"That wouldn't suck, would it?"

On the rumors about Tito Ortiz's health and whether he will still be a part of "The Ultimate Fighter 11":

"Obviously, anything that's going on with 'The Ultimate Fighter' it's simple questions that we can't answer anything about 'The Ultimate Fighter.' Everybody wants to know, you know. If people think that there's (blank) going on with Tito and this and that, (blanking) watch and see what happens."

 

On Roger Huerta signing with Bellator to compete in the lightweight tournament:

"We didn't even try to sign him. You know, he's had a couple of losses. Let him fight in one of the smaller shows and see what he wants to do. You know, we'll go from there. We never tried to sign Roger. We let him go."

You can read the whole thing here.  White talks about attending the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight this past weekend, and how he's had talks about Jerry Jones about holding a UFC event in the stadium.  That he doesn't have anything scheduled for April 17th, plus more.
