Quick Shots: Dana On ‘E:60′ Tonight, Sherk Talks Diego, Rachelle Leah Pictorial

* UFC president Dana White will be profiled tonight on ESPN’s “E:60″ news magazine show. The show airs Tuesdays at 7pm ET. We had reported last week that Dana White doesn’t expect it to be a positive story. You can see a preview of the episode in our ‘Videos’ section by clicking here. Here is ESPN’s program description: “At 39, Dana White, the president of Ultimate Fighting Championship is both czar and star of one of the worlds fastest growing sports mixed martial arts. He is at the epicenter of an enterprise that has moved from spectacle to sport in less than a decade. Mostly, White is outside-the-box, and at times, out of control. Last month, he created a national stir after posting a three-minute, profanity-laced tirade on his website aimed at MMA reporter Loretta Hunt. Premieres Tuesday, May 12th 7pm ET on ESPN.”

* has some interesting quotes from Sean Sherk talking to MMA For Real about Diego Sanchez and his upcoming fight with Frankie Edgar. Speaking on Diego, Sherk noted that he’s “tough. That’s why I want to fight him. He was a top guy at 170 for a long time. He looks good every time, including his most recent win against Joe. It was a good first fight to introduce him to the lightweight division, I think. It’s funny because some people took it as disrespectful that I mentioned him as an opponent, but I asked to fight him out of respect for him. We’re both great fighters and I think a fight between us would be exciting.”

On what’s next for him if he beats Frankie Edgar at UFC 98, Sherk noted that he would like to fight either the winner of the BJ Penn – Kenny Florian lightweight championship fight or the winner of the Clay Guida – Diego Sanchez fight at the TUF 9 Finale.

* In addition to the Gina Carano spread we talked about earlier this week, the latest edition of YRB Magazine also has a pictorial on ex-UFC Octagon girl Rachelle Leah, who also graces the cover. You can see a photo from the magazine below. For more on YRB Magazine, click here.
