White Irate Over War Machine Press – “Stop Calling Him A UFC Fighter”
“It’s horrible, man. Horrible. And every time I gotta look and see, ‘Ex-UFC fighter’ when the stories are written. He fought twice [in the UFC], six years ago! He’s a current Bellator-Viacom fighter. I had my staff calling these reporters are like, ‘We don’t know what Bellator is.’ And I said, ‘You ever heard of Viacom?’ That’s who he fights for. He fights for Viacom, not the UFC. They want clicks, they want readers. How unfair is it? The guy fought six years ago and he’s an ex-UFC fighter? He’s been a Bellator fighter since they started Bellator, or however long. It has been, years since he has been fighting for them. I get it, not everybody has heard of him, but it’s freakin’ Viacom.”
UFC President Dana White addressed the media in Maine this past Friday and discussed the recent controversy surrounding his former Employee, War Machine.
