At the press conference of one of these events, Dana White made a claim. He stated that his contender series holds the second-best fight library in the world.

“I was thinking about this tonight. You know, we own a few libraries you know in combat sports. This is the second-best library in combat sports. I mean, you can make the argument for PRIDE because PRIDE had some classic unbelievable fights, but they had a lot of shi**y fights on there a lot of mismatches and things like that too but this thing in four seasons top to bottom I mean every single fight is excellent, it’s crazy. This is the second-best library in all of combat sports, it’s unbelievable,” said Dana White.
