Dana White’s ESPN Appearance: Just The Important Shit

If you watched Dana White on ESPN “E:60” last night, you may be asking yourself, what happened to that hatchet job he was so convinced they were doing on him?  Turns out it was a pretty fair, though not all that groundbreaking a look at the UFC president, focusing on the evolution of the UFC and some of his more aggressive business strategies.  Here’s him going back and forth, yet again, with Tito Ortiz, in which Ortiz’s verbal dyslexia rises to the surface and Dana screws up the phrase ‘I couldn’t care less.’ (Dammit Dana, when you say ‘I could care less,’ you’re implying that you care and are thus using it to mean the exact opposite of what you intend.  Come on, you’re better than that.)

There’s more after the jump, including DW’s take on boxing, why he’s not a pro fighter himself, and the internet war with Loretta Hunt.

Christ what a lying pompous asshole Dana is...

I like Dana's response to the reporter giving him shit about his harsh language, when he says "I mean, we're all grown-ups here..."

Does Dana not realize that grown-ups don't use a different swearword every other word in a sentence? Maybe from the ages 15 to 21 that is acceptable. You are a 40 year old business man, act like one. Its called class, it can do wonders for your image.

If people want others to start showing respect for MMA fighters, they need a representative that will show that they aren't a bunch of meat-head red-necks, and Dana isn't really filling the role.

At least he can admit that he has a swearing problem. Now that he admitted it, he can change his act.

1:16 mark Tito Said "I have fought the best world in the men." Sounds like some untapped announcing talent.

Yes, everyone's heard both phrases, but the way (most) Americans currently say "I could care less" is incorrect. It's grammatically incorrect, even if it is accepted, which is debatable. Saying "who" in the place of "whom" is generally accepted even when it's grammatically incorrect.

"I could care less" was intended to be sarcastic, meaning "as if I could possibly care any less." Unfortunately, most people don't give the shortened version the obvious sarcastic inflection it requires, and because so many people don't know anything about the origin of the phrase, it loses it's meaning in writing.

I, too, have heard the both phrases. I think "I could care less" works in a weird way.

Everyone needs to stop busting Dana's balls. Let him be him, fuck.
ImaAssSpankMe- May 13, 2009 at 3:50 pm
Word. Same thing with axe/ask. I'm pretty sure "axe you a question" is the correct phrase even though it doesn't make sense. I've always heard it said that way at least. I rarely hear "ask you a question" even though that would make a tiny bit more sense. Retarded mistakes never make their way into spoken word. Brilliant.

I totally agree with Perdew. Fuck those journalists as well as the Yahoo journalists as well. Rarely do i see well written stories on yahoo. And rarely do I like how the journalists talk and shit. The stories though... Most are not known to most people and are pretty entertaining.

Dana white is the shit by the way. Also so glad to see Dana tell that stupid bitch loretta what was up once again. Stupid piece of shit, good for nothing, incompetent Slut. Hope Dana hires someone to kill that bitch. And so glad he denied to pay for "Cheeto's" back.

Wow your jaw must really be cramping up

For once I agree with you Hal.

Overall you are a dbag that types in call CAPS which is very annoying... but I do agree with you on this one.
HAL_13- May 13, 2009 at 12:52 pm
GREAT VIDEOS. DANA WHITE IS A CLASS ACT, AND I HAVE ALOT OF RESPECT FOR HIM AND ALL THE HARD WORK, AND LONG HOURS THAT HE PUTS IN TO KEEPING THE UFC AFLOAT IN SUCH AN AMAZING WAY. LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM, HE IS DOING A HELL OF ALOT BETTER JOB WITH BUISNESS THEN ANY OF US.

"350 fighters under contract" whaaaaatttt

"I've fought some of the best world in the men"

How do you say that in an interview with ESPN and not realize right after you say it? Tito is proof that cranial capacity != intelligence.
Canadian Chronic- May 13, 2009 at 12:20 pm
does anybody know the real reason Tito never showed up for the sparring match between him and dickface white?

gawd, i hate those fukkers
rokabee- May 13, 2009 at 11:24 am
lol at the 3rd video when he was naming off all the stuff DW said...that shit was funny, beep beep beep beep whore beep beep beep beep loser beep. LOL!

I don't really have a problem with the way Dana speaks. I cuss, and so does most of the rest of the people in this country, including Goodell, Stern, and all of these other tight wads that act all fake in front of the cameras because of the FCC. If they wouldn't be fined or, lose their job, I bet they would be a little more real in front of the camera. When the guy interviewing Dana asked him about kids hearing him swear I thought, they probably hear the same and worse from their parents or friends. To quote the immortal Jack Black on the first Tenacious D cd, "Fuckin cock-A-oss"
Levi Jones- May 13, 2009 at 10:47 am
I thought they did a hatchet job like he said. A lot of his explanations that they showed in the internet previews were completely cut. It seemed like the message was "here's Dana swearing and a bunch of people that don't like him."

Also, Pat Miletich saying that Dana has never told him the truth? His hyperbole makes him look idiotic. Why not cite specific examples and just stick to the facts?

I HAF FOUGHT THE BEST WORLD OF MEN.


Swedish- May 13, 2009 at 10:43 am
Dana came off very well in this interview. Hope things start clicking with all the haters on this site
Emo Sux- May 13, 2009 at 10:32 am
I think Dana looks more like that insane canibal baby from the famous youtube video, "Charlie Bit Me." That fucking baby is the weirdest thing ever when im high... Evil little prick!

Completely agree on the Maine connection. Way toughter people from Maine (except Tim Sylvia).

He lived down the road from me, just outside of Bangor.
