It was a hectic Saturday night for UFC president Dana White. Not only did he host another successful show in Canada, but the promoter was also forced to cut ties with two fighters after what went down at UFC 113 .

Although Mauricio “Shogun” Rua successfully avenged his controversial UFC 104 loss to Lyoto Machida by posting a vicious First Round knockout to capture the light heavyweight title, it was what took place at the conclusion of the evening’s co-main event that is hoarding all the media attention.

Following Paul Daley's embarrassing loss to Josh Koscheck, he decided to embarrass himself by taking a swing at 'Kos well after the fight was over which prompted White to take swift action.

Ariel Helwani of MMAFanhouse caught up with White to discuss his new 205-pound king, Kimbo Slice’s impending UFC release and Paul Daley’s immediate dismissal.
