UFC president Dana White gave his honest opinion over the weekend when asked about Saturday’s Bellator 120 card. The event will be the first pay-per-view for the promotion, which is considered No. 2 in the MMA pecking order behind the UFC.

The event, though, lost its planned main event when lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez went down with a head injury. White, during his media scrum following UFC Fight Night 40, called the Alvarez-Michael Chandler contest “the legit fight on the card.”

From there, the brash boss gave his thoughts on Bellator, including CEO Bjorn Rebney.

“I don’t care about those guys,” White said. I don’t see them as competition whatsoever.” He went on, calling out Rebney, who he refers to as “Bjork” for discussing the legalization process of MMA in New York, something the UFC has been the driving force behind.

“He’s done nothing,” White said. “He’s done completely zero. Zilch.”

As for the pay-per-view adventure, White simply stated, “good luck to him.” He’s previously said money is normally lost when a promotion decides to venture into the PPV world.

Bellator attempted to put on a pay-per-view last November with Tito Ortiz and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson meeting in the main event. Days before the card, though, Ortiz suffered a neck injury and they moved the event to Spike TV. Chandler fought Alvarez in the main event, with Alvarez winning back the title.

Now, both Ortiz and Jackson will be part of Saturday’s card. Ortiz, a former UFC champion, faces Alexander Shlemenko, while Jackson meets Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in the main event.
