White talks ESPN: I'm not going to put up with people's s---

Publicly, the response to the piece was varied with some in support of the UFC and some echoing the criticisms raised by ESPN. Multiple media outlets looked into the issue of fighter pay, including MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), and while White said he was "pretty happy" with the majority of stories on the issue, he said he would continue to attack those he felt were unfair.

"The bottom line is – and I'm sitting here talking to the media – but I'm not going to put up with people's [expletive]," White said. "I'm not going to put up with people writing stories that aren't true and saying things that aren't true. I won't. I don't care who it is – ESPN or whoever."

In particular, the UFC president singled out a CBS opinion piece that ran this week and said it was "not the way stories should be written."

But for all the unwanted attention received as the result of the story, White continues to defend the way the UFC does business.

"Are we perfect? Hell no, we're not perfect," he said. "Dude, the amount of hours we put in in a day; the amount of traveling that I'm doing this year. People from FX, FOX (and) the UFC think it's impossible for me to pull off what I'm going to pull off this year. But believe me when I tell you, it's going to [expletive] happen. I'm going to do it.

I just want to know one thing. What UFC fan actually cares about what the media thinks? We want good fights and will pay to watch them.

The corporations that care about his f bombs and behavior aren't going to sponsor anyway cause it's violent human cock fighting. It doesn't really matter.

Well I am going to have to disagree with you. How many main stream big corporation do you think want to associate themselves with a company who's front man acts like a grown up baby and drops f bombs like they are nothing? There is a way of conducting yourself and showing an air of authority and respect that doesnt include acting like a wanna be tough guy. His steroid use has really gotten to his ego and he now believes truly is BLAF.
