Is it true, is our ‘Fearless Leader” really planning to retire? Say it isn’t so. Well it isn’t so, right now anyways. In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, the two spoke of several things including Jon Jones, UFC 146, and most notably, White’s possible retirement from the organization. But fear not fight fans, Dana isn’t leaving us quite yet.
“It’s not that I have this plan that I’m out in seven years. I know what the seven-year plan is with the FOX deal and I think my place in this sport and in this organization, I’ve always known what I wanted to do and I absolutely know that we’re gonna do it in the next seven years. I know where this thing’s gonna go and where it’s gonna be and I think that in seven years the sport, the athletes that are competing in this sport, building all the weight classes, doing all the things that need to be done, we’re gonna get this stuff done in the next seven years. The one goal that we did set out to do was to get this thing in every country. We’re gonna be there in seven years. I’m not saying I’m retiring the day this FOX deal is up, or anything like that, but it is what’s kinda on my mind.”
