There’s a lot of buzz amongst uneducated MMA fans about “evil” and “abusive to the fighters” Dana White is. Let me tell you something; it’s a whole slew of hogwash when it comes down to it.
Popularity and public image creates criticism, time and time again. Celebrities, movie stars, singers, etc. all face tomatoes hurled their general direction no matter how much good they do.
For those who oppose Dana and the UFC while supporting “real MMA” in Japan and the likes (you know who you are), I offer up the following excerpt from a recent USA Today interview…
“I’m sure they’re going to put on some good shows, and hopefully, they can make that business model work for them,” White says. “I’ve got nothing negative to say about them whatsoever.”
