Dana White might own the biggest mix martial arts combat platform in the world right now, but there are only a select few fighters that he really likes seeing in the Octagon.

It’s a platform where fighters who show expert showmanship and fighting skills, so it isn’t exactly hard to understand why so many people subscribe to UFC to get their dose of action.

White’s formula for making UFC a successful venture is by bringing loud-mouth, brash and daring people who are exceptional in the arts of fighting as well. It’s a formula that engages people as well as elevates some of the fighters to unbelievable heights of fame.

While Dana White appeared on the Mike Tyson podcast to discuss many things such as the upcoming Logan Paul vs. Ben Askren fight as well as making crazy million dollar bets on who would win. When asked by Tyson about who his favorite fighter is, White gave the answer without a second’s thought.

I mean it’s hard not to say Conor McGregor. McGregor comes out and puts on a show, the world goes crazy, the whole world is buzzing when that guy fights.

Even though The Notorious Conor McGregor is certainly a moneymaker for the UFC founder and CEO, he doesn’t make it easy for everyone to like him. After McGregor leaked his DMs with White talking to him about Diego Sanchez, the two had a bit of a strained relationship for a while. Since Dana fixed the misunderstanding between the three and buried the hatchet, all is well for now.

It wasn’t because he put out private messages. We were talking about another fighter. And I like Diego Sanchez. I have a lot of respect for Diego Sanchez. I care about Diego Sanchez. I talked to Diego face-to-face about it, and being the great human being he is, we’re all good. I was really upset with Conor, but we fixed that and now we’re all good.
