Feldman recently went to the UFC headquarters and met with White and what they talked about isn’t known. However, Feldman says he wanted to meet with White and after talking to him, he has nothing but praise for the UFC CEO, who also had kind words for the BKFC founder.

“I’m not dogging other promotions, but why are you going to say you are bigger than the UFC? I mean, come on,” David Feldman said on Just Scrap Radio on BJPENN.com. “The UFC is a juggernaut, it’s the NFL of combat sports right now, it really is so why are you going to take shots at him? What the guy did, yes he did have funding, but what he did to take a company that as 50-plus million in the hole and turn into a $12 billion valuation. He has a great team around him, but to lead his team to that direction, how can you not say the guy did a hell of a job? Really, I don’t care what you say about fighter pay, what you say about all this other stuff, he took a negative $50 million project and turned into $12 billion. That’s incredible.

“Look, honestly, at first, I was like ‘this isn’t going to go the way I wanted it to go.’ The first five minutes. Then, we got into real talk and I really like the guy, he’s a real guy and I like him,” Feldman continued.

What comes from the meeting between Dana White and David Feldman is uncertain, but the BKFC founder is happy with how the meeting tuned out.

BKFC’s next event is set for Saturday as their prospect series takes place in Alberta, Canada. After that, there are several other events, but David Feldman knows the next marquee event is KnuckleMania 4 on April 27.
