Dana White, As Only Dana White Can, Fires Back At Haters

Dana White, As Only Dana White Can, Fires Back At Haters

UFC president Dana White isn’t your typical leader of a mainstream sports promotion.

White likes to post video blogs showing him at work and behind the scenes, routinely takes to Twitter to engage in “discussions” with his critics and fans, and even hits up underground MMA forums from time to time.

Recently, White did just that, using The Underground forum to answer back at those calling for his head after the recent Georges St-Pierre fiasco.

“Sometime text me today and said there were a ton of (expletive) crying so i popped in to answer some questions and tell some people to (expletive) off,” White wrote. “I wanted to make sure it was VERY clear to the world that we have NOTHING to do with the judges and refs. You the hard cores know that but the rest of the world that tunes in to a big fight like that does not.

“Anyway, thats all i got. Those of you that are crying and (expletive) for me to leave are going to have to go watch Golf cause we are working on big things and i am just gettin started (expletive).”

So, there you have it; White giving it like only he can.

For what it’s worth, White also wrote that he still feels Alexander Gustafsson defeated Jon Jones earlier this year for the UFC light heavyweight title, adding that he just loves “talking fights, watching fights and everything else that goes along with it. I am just as much a fan as everyone else and love the sport, the UFC, the fans and most of the fighters.”

    He thought Gustaffson won? Well, now we know the issue. Uncle Dana knows fuck all about judging fights.

    If and when the commission gets around to reviewing MMA scoring rules, maybe they should leave Dana out of it. He proudly knows nothing.

    I took no issue with White complaining about the judges, why doesn’t he address his treatment of GSP?

    The way he threw his number one star under the bus and the speed he did it at was astonishing! He talks about loyalty all the time yet proves it’s a one way street with him.

    I love the sport but Dana White is every bit as dispicable as Don King, only difference is King has quite the vocabulary.

    Dana can say he has responded to his detractors, despite the fact that he has only responded to the ones concerned about judging. It’s weasel-y, but it’s true.

    Dana isn’t really in the apology business, so we might as well accept that one isn’t coming. He has more confidence than sense, we all know that, even those of us who generally like him. Sometimes it leads to him making statements that need saying, and sometimes it leads to him looking like dickish clown.

    Fertita said in an announcement that GSP owes them nothing, and that if he want’s to retire then it’s fine.
