Dana White Discusses The Employment Of His First Openly Gay Fighter | UFC NEWS

“I love what [Liz Carmouche] did. I know I have the big ‘homophobe’ persona and people think I’m some homophobe. I’m the furthest thing from it. i think its ridiculous its 2013 and the government tells two people they can’t marry each other. Who is the government to tell two people who say they love each other they can’t be married? It’s ridiculous.”

UFC president Dana White dishes out his opinion on employing his first ever openly gay fighter in Liz Carmouche.

Liz makes her UFC debut at UFC 157 where she will challenge Ronda Rousey in the main event on pay-per-view.

    I suspect his view would be a little different if it was a male fighter in question.

  3. Swaggy J says:

    I thought Rory was first?

    Nick Ring is gay….

  6. JustAfan says:

    everyone knows that there is nothing wrong with 2 jaw droppingly hot blondes going to town on one anothers beaver. On the other hand, everyone also knows that one man getting PLOWED doggystyle by another man, 2 seta of balls smacking one another, blowing te man juice on a set of sideburns or a beard is just gay, and gross. No man should ever want to fuck, suck, blow, hum, or deepthroat Nother man.

  7. mathematicscore says:

    Wow, the homophobia came in quick here. Not surprising, but sad none the less.

  8. Chad says:

    Liz Carmouche via the shocker….


    With that said I now predict Rousey winning by triangle box choke.

  11. Dana white says:

  12. Duane says:

  13. Xaninho says:

    That one guy on TUF was gay too wasn’t he?

    I don’t have anything against gay people, but in all honesty I wouldn’t be comfortable in a north-south position either. It’s not a comfortable position in the first place but adding the gayness makes it slightly worse…

    • dante080 says:

      That guy wasn’t gay. He just did some gay porn in college for money. He announced that he is 100% not gay and was just doing it for money. So technically no. Physically kinda hard to say he wasn’t.

  14. dave says:

    I think anyone that voluntarily wrestles around with someone of the same sex is probably some percent homosexual to begin with so that would include just about everyone in the MMA world. Shocker. I think that’s why it’s such a gripping fear to male viewers they don’t want to believe it.

    • B-rad says:

      na i think you got it wrong there. I like jiu jitsu and wrestling (not as much as kickboxing) and guess what.. i love vagina’s! I think its you sir that is the “some percent homosexual to begin with” but not some percent, i get the feeling your a 100% peter puffer

    • Will says:

      Ive got jds and bendo. Cains chin wont take but so many shots from dos before he cbrumles. Henderson is a great scrambler in addition to his strong wrestling. Guida wont be able to keep him on his back and henderson will take a decision.

  15. Jeremy says:

    The Government didn’t say that. GOD did!

  16. BobbyBG33k says:

    If the fact that she’s gay doesn’t matter then why is news that she’s gay making headlines and why is the UFC getting glorified for accepting her? They need to stop acting like every person that openly admits to being gay is damned Rosa Parks.

  17. stevo the great says:

    Funny ow all the people bashing gays….are the same ones that say the don’t want to see WMMA. Or Women fight like school kids…or any other misogynistic comment you can ponder up. So not only are you misogynistic,homophobic…..but you prefer to watch men fight and downgrade women….yet you are homophobic? Maybe you should take a look in the mirror…..especially after you make a retarded comment. Evaluate yourselves and what YOU say rather than judging someone for their sexual preference….you people are like high school kids, grow the f@#k up already!!!!

  18. johnnyrebel says:

    The fact is gays are sick disgusting virus breeders and I’m sick of the western world trying to make them look normal and acceptable!they are not they were disgusting weirdos in 1912 just like they are in 2012!the difference being that they had to fervidly hide their sickness. I’m not a Muslim but it appears that they are the only ones standing up to the gay onslaught of good moral standards of a society.Dana is just being totally P.C what else could he say?lets see if his son turns out gay and then he brings his boyfriend home to shag and spunk all over Danas sofa!LMFAO
