In an interview today with MMA Fighting, UFC President Dana White discussed today’s announcement that a 10-percent stake in the UFC was recently sold to a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi government, confirmed that BJ Penn will face Frankie Edgar in April, likely at UFC 112 on April 10 in Abu Dhabi, and said that Anderson Silva is also expected to appear on the card as previously reported.
White also announced that the UFC will hold a press conference next week in Las Vegas to provide an update on the health of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, who will be in attendance. White said the update isn’t good news or bad news, and is instead “just news,” but that he is hopeful Lesnar will fight again.
