Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Dana White is a Dr. Phil Fan

(I knew Dana reminded me of someone, I just couldn’t put my finger on who.)

Filed under the "Now I’ve heard everything" category, UFC president Dana White revealed in a recent story in the Vancouver Sun that he’s a big fan of self-proclaimed self-help guru Dr. Phil McGraw. White admits in the interview that he didn’t know much about McGraw before appearing on an episode of his daytime talk show last year, but he says now he really respects Dr. Phil.

Responding to reporter Dave Deibert’s request for White to name the celebrity who he has met who most left him in awe, the Baldfather responded:

"I’m gonna have to say Dr. Phil. I didn’t even know who he was. (“I had to talk him into it,” says UFC PR director Jennifer Wenk.) I knew that he was one of those talk-show guys. We go in, her and I go into this green room, and they come in like, ‘Here you go. Here’s your Dr. Phil T-shirt and your Dr. Phil mug.’ I look at Jenn like this (raising eyebrows): ‘Oh thank you. That’s nice.’ I’m polite and whatever. Then I throw the f***ing thing. Like I want the Dr. Phil mug and T-shirt. Then I go out and we do the show. We meet Dr. Phil. Then we go backstage and we start talking to him and s*** — the coolest f***ing guy you could ever meet. Real guy, down to earth, super cool. The way that they do his show, they film the show and then they get you the hell out of there. They bring in a whole other group and start filming another show. So they’re getting us out the door and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. I want my Dr. Phil mug. Where’s my Dr. Phil mug?’ Before we left, I wanted that Dr. Phil mug (laughs) . . . I didn’t know who he was. I didn’t care. And then once I met him? F***ing he was the man."

I wonder if this means that Dana has been reading some of Dr. Phil’s books in an effort to curb his public fits of anger displays of emotion. I’m just  hoping he starts throwing out some McGraw-like cliches when conducting interviews and doing business.

Imagine the sheer awesomeness of Dana taking care of shit Dr. Phil style:

Ariel Helwani: I disagree with your proclamation that Fedor is not the best fighter in the world.

Dana: Well Ariel, it’s like I always say to Joe Silva, ‘If someone out there doesn’t agree with me, then somewhere a village is missing their idiot.’
BJ Penn: I swear Dana; I looked over the book before it went to print, but I didn’t read it THAT carefully. 

Dana: This ain’t my first rodeo son!
BJ Penn: My family told me to write the book.

Dana: Why on earth would you look to your parents for advice? If they were happy, prosperous and intelligent, you wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place!
Randy Couture: Dana, I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Kim.

Dana: Randy, what are you doing? A man can’t ‘just be friends’ with another woman. Period.
Tito Ortiz: I don’t know what to do about this Jenna thing.

Dana: She has your balls in a Dixie cup, buddy. I don’t care how flat you make a pancake, it has two sides.
Anderson Silva: I don’t know why everyone is so mad. I put on an entertaining show and I won the fight.

Dana: So your theory is, ‘We’re gonna go up there and have a donkey barbecue,’ and you’re going to furnish the ass.
Dan Henderson: I wasn’t appreciated by the UFC and they ignored my feelings.

Dana White: Your feelings? To hell with your feelings! You don’t get a say in things.
M-1 Global: You can have Fedor, but we want to co-promote and we want half of the pay-per-view money

Dana: You keep talking about how you want the flowers and the cake and everything that goes along with it, but you’re planning for the wedding and not the marriage.

Dana White has no testicles. If he did, they would be sitting right below his chin like some enormous elephantiasis infected thyroid glands coming out of the sides of his neck.

How much more douchey is Dana gonna get? Venus razors..., Pinkberry..., and now Dr. fucking Phil. Be careful Dana, I think your testicles are ascending...

God I just want to punch "cockter feel" everytime he opens his stupid mouth, nothing he says is right, and he is a 2 faced cum-bubbling fucktard.
I can't believe Dana likes that douche, geez.

I for one welcome our new hyper-dimensional 2 sided pancake overlords.

Lmao, that pic is creepy
I respected Dana White until he said Dr. Phil was the man. i'll spare you guys the 2 page i hate Dr.Phil rant. At least Dana didn't say that he thought Nancy Grace was cool, otherwise i'd have to boycott the ufc.
lol nothing in 3d has only 2 sides... mmm i could go for some 2d pancakes right now, not very filling though

This whole thing was awesome. The pic, the article, even the comments seem to fuse together into one larger entity. Until I made this observation in a post. Let me try to recover:

Well, shit, dog - I want you to be fuckin' be happy about your mothafuckin' life. Take some fuckin' ownership of that bitch and discuss it with the mothafucka that's causing you to have all your shit fucked up all the time.

Oh damn - I got carried away again.

I can't stand doctor Phil of shit. He's Phil of Shit.

I don't care how flat you make a pancake, it has at least a minimum of three sides (probably many more considering surface irregularities of the minimal three surfaces) unless we all exist in a two-dimensional geometry. You know, just sayin'.

That Dr. Dana picture is damn eerie. We're talking uncanny valley here.

"I don't care how flat you make a pancake, it has two sides." is the ultimate argument against everything, all the time, and forever

Birds of a feather flock together.

In this case of the bird happens to be the rare Pretentious Asshole, common to North America, it is now for its puffing out its chest and being wiser than anyone round it.

First? say that these Dr.Philism's are great!...On a serious note, why the fuck do you know what Dr. Phil says? Btw...I know I wasn't first on the post..but thought I would be cuz there were no comments yet when I got on...but I was still the first to appreciate the Dana being more like Dr. Phil.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 5, 2010 at 12:37 pm
Dr. Phil: "So, fuck yeah dog, I use a home made mixture of furniture wax, neem oil, and goat semen and I polish that mother fucking bitch right up. It gives a motherfucker of a fucking shine you wouldn't fucking believe, if I tilt my fucking head at the wrong fucking angle I can fucking blind bitches in the cheap seats with the fucking reflection. Shit shines for days motherfucker."

Dana: "No fucking shit? For motherfucking days?"

There must be a club for self-loathing balding white men whose heads look like giant beluga penises.

I wouldn't be surprised, you can find anything on the internets these days.
