Ho. Lee. Shit. Dana White is upset with Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt. Like, really upset. So much so that he spends the final three minutes of his Fight Night 18 video blog bashing her with language that would make Nixon blush. Not that it’s surprising to hear the UFC prez throw around a handful of f-bombs (though it’s kind of funny since he just warned tonight’s fighters against swearing on Spike TV), but to hear him call a female reporter a bitch…wow. If his mother is anything like mine, there’s going to be a very stern voicemail message on his phone tonight.
Apparently Hunt’s article about some managers being stripped of backstage credentials really touched a nerve. White says it’s all crap and offers an explanation for why this is a non-story, while also pausing to go off on a tangent about Hunt’s comments in that Matt Lindland documentary. Clearly some old hurts are rising to the surface here. You can’t keep those feelings bottled up forever. It isn’t healthy.
I don’t know if all this means we should pay more attention to the allegations in the article (made by anonymous sources, who are apparently pussies for not wanting to bring the Danawrath upon themselves) or less, but either way it’s kind of a bizarre accomplishment to get your name mentioned so much in one of D.W.’s video blogs. Kind of like getting punked in a Jay-Z song. At least people know who you are afterwards, right Prodigy?
