Last night, UFC President Dana White and former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub engaged in a very public war of words — in the comments section of an Israel Adesanya Instagram post. In this post, White warned Adesanya not to take Schaub seriously, which prompted Schaub to fire back.
“Such a f—kin tool!!!!” White said of Schaub in his comment (via MMAMania). “What the f—k does this idiot know about the sport or the business??? @stylebender for u to be listening to one word from this MORON is a waste of ur time. Guy went 6-5 in the UFC!!! The only thing he could teach u is how to get KO’d. Tune idiots like this OUT.”
“@danawhite whoooooooa look who got a break from folding Ronda’s laundry to jump on instagram,” Schaub said in response to White “Bravo sir. He’s right @stylebender what do I know listen to the bald fat guy who has never been in a fight in his life. Do that.”
Now, Schaub has taken it a step further. In a scathing note posted to social media, he trashed White’s ability to run the UFC without the aid of Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, and also called White his “Eskimo Brother”. That’s a slang term for two men who have slept with the same woman, for those who didn’t know…

“This is hilarious,” Schaub said (edited for clarity). “Yes, Joe Rogan is one of my best friends. Has played a significant role in my post-fight career, no doubt, you’re right about that DW. Two TV shows, sold out world-wide comedy tour, two successful podcasts, and just booked my first major movie. Super grateful. HOWEVER, if it weren’t for the Fertittas loaning your ass millions of dollars to invest in an idea that wasn’t yours from the start, you wouldn’t be SHIT. How’s it feel to know once the real businessmen/brains left, the UFC has been a shell of its self with you at the forefront. You’ve tried it all. CM Punk experiment, begging Brock [Lesnar] to come back, and praying at night for a Conor [McGregor] text. Tough job to do without Lorenzo holding your hand making sure you don’t mess it all up. Can’t feel good. You’d be a cardio kickboxing coach in Boston in your late 40s, hoping to grab a ticket to my stand-up, front row, if Lorenzo Fertitta didn’t save your ass. Also, this is NO way Eskimo brothers should talk to one another. Last warning.”
What do you think of Brendan Schaub’s comments here? What exactly is he implying?
