Dana White is still has mixed feeling out what happened at UFC 100. In spite of all the buzz, excellent media coverage and pay-per-view numbers off the charts, the UFC president still sounded pre-occupied by Brock Lesnar sponsor rip during an interview ESPNRadio1100.

He also had a problem with Lesnar getting in Frank Mir's face after the win. Although he did admit seconds later that he's got a similar personality and may have done the same thing.

White was pleased to see bigger television outlets finally arguing about the potential of the sport and not the legitimacy. He also said one radio show was calling Lesnar the Mike Tyson of MMA. People are going to tune into fight to see what the guy does next.
