If You Think Dana White Cares About Bellator, You Are a F*cking Idiot (His Words, Not Ours)


(“I sip the Pink Drink to keep from killin’ y’all.” / Illustration via Financial Times)

Hey guys: Have you ever cared about something so little that it makes you super upset, to the point where you have to go on a three-minute profanity-fueled tirade about how much you don’t care? I mean, that’s something we all struggle with, right?

During a UFC 174 press conference scrum yesterday, UFC president Dana White was asked about the September 5th UFC show that will be taking place just miles away from a Bellator event in Connecticut. At first glance, it seems like the kind of counter-programming mischief that the UFC used to pull on rival promotions like Affliction. (Hey, if you have the resources to put on an MMA event just out of spite, go for it.) But as White explains, Bellator has nothing to do with the UFC’s 9/5 date, and you’re stupid for thinking that, and Bellator lied about drawing 100,000 PPV buys for “Rampage vs. King Mo.” Yeah, that too. You can watch the entire rant on MMAJunkie.com; a mostly-complete transcript is below:

“If you guys really think that we look at Bellator and give a shit what night they’re going on and what they’re doing, we don’t. That’s the date that we landed on. We get the dates from FOX. We don’t pick our own dates, we get the dates. They give us the dates they need us to go on. It’s determined by what other programming they have and what’s going on that night.

“There’s nights we’re gonna fall on the same night as World Series of Fighting, too. And I’ve got no beef with those guys. I don’t give a shit what night Bellator goes on, they make no difference to me whatsoever. The day I start worrying about what Bellator…or, ‘I’m gonna go on the same night as Bellator ’cause I want to crush them.’ They’re getting crushed already by themselves. They can go on their own fucking date anywhere. It’s not like me going on the same night is going to do any more damage to Bellator than was already done…

“But if that’s what you really believe, you’re a fucking idiot. You know what I mean? If you really believe that we want to go on the same night as Bellator because…I could give a shit where Bellator goes. What night, what day, or whatever. It’s not like Bellator’s out there killing it and we’re going to go in and take some…I mean, it’s just stupid to even think that. We end up on the same night as many different sporting events, sometimes boxing events we land on the same nights. There’s tons of events and tons of other MMA organizations. I could give a shit about them.

Reader Roundtable: What Was Your Angriest Moment as an MMA Fan?


(Were you that dumbass who was booing his lungs out at UFC 170? We want to hear from you!)

We haven’t published a reader-submitted CagePotato Roundtable feature in a long time — but every time we’ve tried it, it’s been comedy gold. And so, we figured we’d turn the mics over to the Potato Nation once again. This week’s question: What was your angriest moment as an MMA fan?

For fans of MMA, misery and disappointment come with the territory. But what moment in the sport has left you straight-up furious? Was it a totally botched call by a referee or judge? Ignorant behavior from a big-name fighter or promoter? A blown parlay bet? Maybe talking about it might give you some closure.

E-mail your stories to bgoldstein@defymedia.com by this Friday night at midnight ET. (Please let us know if you don’t want us to print your real names.) We’ll pick a handful of the best ones and run ‘em early the following week. Thanks, guys.
