Talking to reporters at the UFC 116 pre-fight media event, UFC President Dana White was extremely talkative discussing a wide-range of topics. He talked about the future of the heavyweight division after UFC 116, confirming that Cain Velasquez and the winner of Junior Dos Santos vs. Roy Nelson will be the next two world title challengers. He also discussed the future of Chuck Liddell, saying that the former light heavyweight champion would never again fight in the promotion even if that resulted in Liddell leaving the UFC and fighting for another organisation.  He expressed hope that a deal would be reached quickly with Jake Shields, making it clear that he would prefer the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion to fight at 170Ibs.
