UFC President Dana White speaks his mind, and often his mind is pissed off. Below are some epic blasts from the past.
"All you ever did was try to rip money out of it. You never invested a dime into the sport of boxing to make it great, to make it last, to create a future for boxing. He’s nothing but a greedy pig and his jealousy shows non-stop."
"He wasn't smart enough to do it, he didn't have the balls to do it, now he wants to cry about it and be jealous about what we have over here. F--- you, Bob."
"The worst channel in the history of the world."
“UFC programming will be on Spike in 2012. It will continue there. When you look at what I call ‘the spirit of the deal,’ [counter-programming] is the wrong thing to do. In my opinion, it’s Spike not being honorable. They’re not being honorable and they know. [Spike president] Kevin [Kay] knows; [Spike senior vice president of sports and specials] Brian [Diamond] — all the guys who have dealt with me at Spike TV — I’ve been nothing but honorable with them. Everything that I did was to build the UFC and Spike TV. I’ve been a fantastic partner. Whatever they needed from me I’ve done for them and helped them get to where they are today, just like they’ve helped us get to where we are today. And what they’re doing, if that’s the case, and they’re running [Bellator fights] on Spike.com, that’s not the spirit of the deal and they are being 100 percent not honorable.”
"I really don't hate Fedor. His management … these guys made the biggest f--- up in the history of all sports.
"We flew down there and tried to make Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor. And it was for big, big money.
"They f----- laughed at it and I told them, and he'll lie if you ask him this, but I told him and he knows I f----- told him, not Fedor, Vadummy, I told Vadummy, I said 'You're one punch away from being worth zero.'
"Everything was in line for Fedor and Brock to fight. It was right there. You don't laugh at these moments. You f----- seize it, you take it. He didn't take it.
"They thought they were too cool and too slick and too f----- funny. Like I said, they're not laughing now."
"Maybe there's going to be a Mixed Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Maybe Frank Shamrock has a place there that makes more sense because in the 11 years that I've been here, that jackass hasn't done one thing as far as I've seen to further the sport or the UFC."
"Frank Shamrock is an irrelevant jacksass. He is a two faced, lying ... two faced lying chump. What have you done for mixed martial arts in the last ten years? What have you done? You haven't done anything. You're just a liar and a guy whose trying to keep himself relevant ... I dont want to work with a douche bag like that that ... he is a two faced liar. He is phony."
"(ESPN) had to dig so deep they had to find Ken Shamrock, the guy who ends up getting busted for steroids three times after he leaves the UFC. You couldn't find a more honorable, honest and great guy to come out and interview than Ken Shamrock? I have absolutely zero respect for Ken Shamrock. I think Ken Shamrock is a horrible f------ human being."
"Ken Shamrock filed a bogus lawsuit against us and lost. He owes us that money. Do you know what I've done for Ken Shamrock? Ken Shamrock, when I brought him over, he was broke – flat f------ broke. He was in income-tax trouble. His knee was shot. I rebuilt his knee. I got him out of income-tax trouble, fronted him a s----load of money. We gave him money – literally gave him money – $60,000. We gave him $60,000 just to get him back on his feet. You know how much money he made in the two fights he fought with us? $2.5 million.
"F--- you Ken Shamrock."
"Mazzagatti, as a referee? This f**king guy shouldn't even be watching MMA on TV, let alone refereeing it. I think he's the worst ref in the history of any fight business, ever. He's horrible. We don't pick the refs. The athletic commission does. Those guys are picked by the government. It's not that I don't like him, he's a nice guy. He's an absolute nice guy, he has no business whatsoever being anywhere near mixed martial arts."
"I was in Chicago for a fight when I found out these Anonymous guys had started crashing our site. During an interview, I looked right into the camera and dared them to do it again. I said, Who do you think I am, eBay? I'm in the fight business. I could give a shit if you knock my website down. Do it again! Go ahead. I dare you!
"You're gonna send some pizzas to my house and put my Social Security number out? Who gives a shit? If people really wanted to get your Social Security number, I'm sure they could find it. I'm supposed to bow down to you guys now? I'm going to come after you harder. If you want to fight me, you better pack a f—ing lunch, man. Because we're gonna go until somebody wins and somebody loses.
"It was a Twitter war for days. And that's when it gets fun. You get these guys engaged, you get 'em going, and that's when you get the FBI involved. Because there's so much piracy of UFC merchandise, the FBI was already monitoring everything that was happening. But after Anonymous hacked our site, we also got U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of the Department of Homeland Security, involved. And it helps when they know when and where the hackers are going to attack. So I put my chin out there, and we knew they were gonna punch it. Two weeks after they attacked me, a lot of them started getting busted. I think we contributed to that."
"I've got no problem telling anybody in the world that this is how it went down. Yeah, they leaked some info and dropped our website for a couple of days, but I'm not gonna back down to these Internet bullies. If there are people out there who believe that they can steal or make money off of your intellectual property, I don't care who they are. You go after them, guns a-blazin', man. Guns a-blazin'."
