Retraction: Dana White Has Never Financially Wagered on the Outcome of a UFC Event

On Saturday, we published a post about the UFC’s sponsorship of Jon Jones for his upcoming fight against Rashad Evans, which included a satirical caption about UFC president Dana White betting money on the fight. The caption was intended to be a joke, and we were confident that it would interpreted that way by our readers. Earlier today, we received a press release announcing that the UFC and Dana White are demanding a retraction “regarding certain false and defamatory statements attributed to UFC® President, Dana White.” As the release stated:

“The claim that Mr. White would financially wager on the outcome of a UFC® event is outrageous in the extreme. Indeed, in the verified complaint we are presently preparing for Mr. White’s signature upon his return from Abu Dhabi, Mr. White expressly states under oath that at no time in the history of his association with the UFC® has he ever financially wagered on the outcome of a UFC® event.”

CagePotato doesn’t contest any part of this request; we hereby retract the line in question, which has since been removed from our site. Again, the caption wasn’t published with any malicious intent whatsoever, but we understand that Dana White’s reputation would be harmed if our readers actually believed that he bets on the UFC’s matches. Once again, Dana White does not bet on his own fights, and he never has. We apologize for any misunderstanding the caption may have caused.

They found who tipped DW off. Mike Allen - on twitter as - ? @mikeftallen Check it out

And the douche is a Brit who tweeted afterwards "haha I saw that! My battle against defamation turned out to be rather detrimental. Not even so much as a free ticket either." Mike Allen clearly didn't understand the "joke" and he was only doing it outta attention from DW for some possible tickets. SCUMBAG

Damn Dana dont get your panties in a wad bro.

** I retract my previous comment, Dana doesn't love the cock ... It was meant to be satirical, and I apologize if anyone took me seriously and thinks he really LOVES the cock.
knucklesamitch- April 18, 2012 at 7:20 am
So does this mean Dana Reads the site? Yeah, he loves it ... Like he loves the cock.

I notice he's never asked you to retract the statement that he is part of the "smasher's group". We can only conclude that one is 100% true.
holeeball- April 18, 2012 at 5:35 am
Why did DW crossed the road? So he could suck a huge fucking dick on the other side.
Kimbos Bread- April 17, 2012 at 11:31 pm
And here we have Dana White/UFC picking on the smaller/weaker followers again.

Common sense to Dana White: fuck off and grow a pair. You can't get blood from a stone and your only hurting your fans when you pull this shit.

it was only a joke and beside we all know you are a gambler,so don't attack CP because they made a clears jokers your expense.

Dana_Plight- April 17, 2012 at 10:00 pm
Wow, just wow. Nobody takes what cagepotato says seriously. Im sick of hearing about the danocracy. I just wanna watch fights dickhole

CP fo' life, nucka! Unless you guys really do get served with papers, in which case "Are you calling from a cell phone? Who is this? I don't know you! Prank call, prank call!"

KarmaAteMyCat- April 17, 2012 at 9:28 pm
What the fuck is going on in this place? I get lost on a train and Dana White draws more attention to our humble abode of trolls then we have seen in a long time. I for one want to thank you Mr.White for the prosperity you have brought us.
DD Kong- April 17, 2012 at 8:21 pm
Cagepotato you guys are such winners! You make a funny caption about that sweaty bald buttpirate and he takes it all personal since he's bet on fights in the past. He's like the kid that sharts his pants in class and is the first to blame everyone around him for the smell.

Keep up the good work guys, FREE CAGEPOTATO!
theothermatthughs- April 17, 2012 at 7:58 pm

O Chan- April 17, 2012 at 7:29 pm
Dear CP,
You need better lawyers.
Yours Truly,
Common Sense
J. Spaceman- April 17, 2012 at 7:23 pm
You guys and your semiannual lawsuits crack me up!
Kimbo Lesnar- April 17, 2012 at 6:55 pm
You know what makes me think Dana White DOES bet on the outcomes of his fights?? This ridiculous knee jerk reaction to a joke punchline.
Kimbo Lesnar- April 17, 2012 at 6:47 pm
You don't have to retract a satirical comment! You folded faster than superman on laundry day you pussies.
I don't know which is funnier. The idea that that Dana paid money to get a retraction or that someone took a CP craption seriously.
JesB- April 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm
WOW, you guys folder faster than the French. I will no longer visit your site. I will read other bloggers with testicular fortitude.
Good luck and hope you find your sacks.
