Yesterday, ESPN released a UFC/" target="_blank">video previewing a segment they did for the popular show Outside the Lines. The segment, which airs Sunday takes aim at the UFC and their perceived lack of fighter pay and claims of a monopoly by critics. The video was followed up by an article today titled UFC fighters low pay might be the most brutal, written in part by Josh Gross, the former editor of Sherdog.com whom has a storied past with UFC President Dana White.
Tonight on Twitter, Dana White was fericious in choice of words when discussing defending his business and even plans to released an unedited version of the interviews used by ESPN in the segment for OTL:
@TheFightingPost @joshgrossespn Josh is a pessimistic scumbag who pitched the story. The beauty is we filmed the interview too.
@TheFightingPost @joshgrossespn we will air the entire interview as is no edits after ESPN airs theirs! Looking very forward to this :)
@TheFightingPost @joshgrossespn trust me I have been a part of ESPN hack jobs that's why I don't do those BS shows and why we filmed it
