12:53 PM ET 12.28 | After Thursday's UFC 155 press conference in Las Vegas, Nev., UFC President Dana White tried to reconcile why his company gives away motorcycles to various winners, yet has had issues with fighters being injured on them. "Let me tell you what, when you own a motorcycle, here's the difference: You take a guy like Cain Velasquez or Junior Dos Santos, right? They've got plenty of transportation," White said. "Junior Dos Santos has got a pimped-out Range Rover and God knows what else he has. Cain Velasquez has a bunch of cars. You don't want [a motorcycle] to be your main means of transportation." White, though, said joy riding on the weekends was no issue. His main grip was with fighters who allegedly make money and yet use a motorcycle as their main form of transportation. "Brazil is the one place on earth that you don't want to ride a f---ing motorcycle," White said. "I've been there. I've seen it. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen in my life. You've got people zipping in and out of these things, bumper-to-bumper traffic, missing trucks [by inches]. Let me tell you what: Jose Aldo has plenty of money. He can buy a car or a bus or an SUV."
