White responds to stupid morons at Sports Illustrated


UFC president Dana White appeared on ESPN 2's Highly Questionable and responded to babble about Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman being a fixed fight. While the subject received airing from any number of internet trolls, it also got coverage, unfathomably, Sports Illustrated.

Below SI employees Maggie Gray, Chris Mannix, Ted Keith, and Andrew Perloff all discuss the issue as if it was plausible.

"It wouldn't surprise me if it was happening in this UFC case," said Mannix. "I mean I just think it does happen a lot of times."

The delusion heightened with Andrew Perloff.

"My first thought, when I read the results on Sunday morning... Yeah, that it made me nervous," he said. "But I would have thought they would have fixed it for Silva. But UFC, and correct me if I'm wrong, is even less regulated than boxing, right?"

Wrong. And human beings can't roll their eyes back into their head.

The SI piece was so bizarre that White for once stopped holding his feelings back, and simply spoke his mind.

"Who is going to fix a fight by getting viciously knocked out? You know how stupid you have to be to even think that? You are an absolute moron."

"Speaking of morons... Sports Illustrated had this group of people together and they were actually - SPORTS ILLUSTRATED - talked about, had this panel saying, 'yeah, so I heard over the weekend, you know this fight might have been fixed.'

"First of all these people looked like they covered tennis, not fighting. And you could tell none of them even watched the fight. For somebody like Sports Illustrated, people who are supposed to be credible journalists, to go out and say something that stupid when they never even watched the fight, is just a testament to how bad reporting is getting these days. It's more about the shock factor than the fact factor."

"When you're stupid, I'm coming after you."

When Justin Beiber asked for a stream of the fight, someone should have tweeted him the DFW "That's FUCKING ILLEGAL" .GIF.Great interview... wish it could have been longer. Dana = ratings.

I think it says a lot about Anderson Silva. Those guys had impressive runs, but you need to add their defenses together to equal what Silva did.
