White really fanning the flames on new Fedor-to-UFC rumors

It's usually the moment that UFC PR loves to wrap up any media discussion with Dana White. Why there would be anything wrong with asking Fedor Emelianenko is beyond me but everyone in the room get nervous except White. He gets it and knows the guy draws eyeballs, has an intense fan following and is the one big prize he hasn't been able to land.

The UFC president was livid when Fedor landed with Strikeforce/Showtime in the middle of 2009 but he knew there'd be a day when the Russian heavyweight would once again be free agent. White spoke with Yahoo! Sports Kevin Iole right after the UFC 112 press conference and acted as if he wanted to whet the whistle a bit on the subject of Fedor. White said he's spoken with Fedor's management team more recently than you'd think.
