Dana White: Bellator Doing One Of The Scummiest, Most Despicable Things In The Biz | UFC NEWS


Dana White talks about TUF numbers, injuries, Bellator contracts and criticizes Bob Arum during his UFC 152 post-fight scrum with media.

Highlights:

“You know why keeps leaking all this stuff out, and all this negativity is Spuke TV.”

“These guys don’t have a f—— program on that show to save their life.”

“The worst channel in the history of the world, okay? Nothing they do on that channel works.”

“Where as FX has such a powerful network, they want us on Fridays… TUF was the #1 for its time period for 18-34, passing all cable and broadcast channels.”

“That’s a home run for FX. Is it a home run for us, because we are not doing the numbers I wish we could do on Tuesday or Wednesday? No. But it’s an absolute home run for FX.”

“I don’t talk much about Bellator. But what they do is one of the dirtiest things you can do in the business. It’s dirty, its grimy, and it’s just despicable.”

“I have the right to match, but once I cut a guy and let him go and somebody else tries to sign him, I don’t come back say ‘Oh you’re breaking the contract, I have a contract.’

“When you make a decision to cut him, you cut him. That’s one of the dirtiest scummiest things you can do in the fight business.”
