UFC president Dana White provides an update on the middleweight title picture, as well as Georges St-Pierre’s return to fighting.
The UFC’s middleweight title picture is as murky as it’s ever been.

After all is said and done, Ronda Rousey is still the biggest UFC superstar in Dana White's book.

It provides structure for how contracts should be negotiated between a fighter and a promoter; regulations for financial disclosures, oversight, and keeping the roles of manager and promoter distinctly separate.
