UFC President Dana White is in Chicago for this weekend's UFC on FOX 10 at the United Center and stopped by Comcast SportsNet's AT&T U-verse Lounge on Thursday.

He discussed a wide array of topics, including how social media has changed the landscape of professional sports, what the pre-fight weigh-in stare downs are really like, Theo Epstein's impact on Boston and Ronda Rousey.

White grew up a fan of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots, so naturally, the biggest tie in there with Chicago is the 1985 Bears squad that took down the Pats in Super Bowl XX. White joked that people from Chicago never miss a chance to ask him about that game, but he says he has no hard feelings.

 "When you really think about it, could you ask for a cooler team at the time?" White said. "It was just such a cool team. You look at the Super Bowl Shuffle and all that, those guys were all rock stars and really cool guys."
