3. Dana White’s slow descent in to insanity
UFC president Dana White has proved to be one of the most controversial figures in combat sports history, and that’s a difficult thing to do in times like these. The front-man of the world’s biggest fight promotion is often involved in heated social media beefs with just about anyone who is willing to ask questions of the UFC, and at times it can get very ugly.
He was always a sharp-witted character, but it seems that his patience is wearing much thinner, and a lot quicker in 2015. The man that once labelled Fedor Emelianenko a ‘bum’, and Brock Lesnar the ‘Baddest man on the planet’, is no stranger to putting his foot in his mouth.
Check out some of Dana’s best quotes, as well as some of his less than savoury exchanges with media:
”Dan Hardy’s stand up is perfect” Dana White’s pre UFC 111 comments
”Fedor Hasn’t Beaten No One Since The 90’s”
Fedor made his MMA debut in 2000……….
“This ain’t (explicitive) Survivor where we (explicitive) vote him off, we’ll beat him off.”
“Hey, I don’t want this to be seen as a joke, and it’s not like Herschel Walker or Canseco or any of those guys. James Toney is a fighter. The worst thing anyone can ever say to me is that they were watching one of my fights and they changed the channel. That’s why I’ll never put [expletive] fights on.”
