"It's one of those things, it's just a pain in the ass, you know what I mean?" White said. "First of all, he didn't even need to be doing an interview. And I'm going to talk to these guys. I'm going to talk to these guys. The only time these guys really need to be doing interviews is leading up to fights. You know? It ended up being a nightmare for him."

That's open to debate, since, after all, scores of fighters have done interviews after their fights over the years without causing themselves or their company any problems. But White does recognize that Mitrione's damage was self-inflicted.

"What was the point of that interview?" White continued. "There was no point in it. Now it's caused him a bunch of headaches and problems. It's caused us a bunch of headaches and problems for no reason whatsoever."

"He had just fought. He wouldn't fight again for another few months and he's still over there enjoying himself in Sweden, what was the point in doing that interview? What was the upside in that interview? There was none. No upside."

I knew this would be the demise of Helwani. I wouldn't be surprised if Dana prohibited fighters from being interviewed by him, knowing Ariel's dramatic tactics. Phone Post 3.0

So white wants no fighters to do Media after a fight?

Why do after fight press confrences?

Doing a post fight interview seems to make complete sense to me.

I mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion. And I believe that Mitrione has a point to his rant. Fallon Fox IS fighting women when he has been a man for 31 YEARS and the whole body structure is that of a man. Even with only 6 years of treatment, that isn't enough to change your sex imo.

This is really the most annoyed I've been at Dana. I'e been cool with his handling of past shenanigans (miguel torres, for one), but this is just a real mind fuck.

Fighters shouldn't do interviews unless fighting? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? FUCK THIS GHEY EARTH.

Doctor NPD - How dare Mitrione comment on a controversial topic involving the sport he participates in!

It was really the nature of the comment. I don't think Dana would have cared at all if he hadn't worded it the way he did.

So it's okay for him to just say sorry, but fighters have to lose money? Phone Post 3.0

Dana should grow some balls, and have his back. You'd think with all the T he puts in, he'd be a man.

Dana is correct. There is a reason why agents  keep their guys away from "sideshow" interviews.

We all know they are for fun. But, the media clings on to this shit and they don't let go. Nothing but problems.

There was for Ariel, Dana. That is how he gets publicity, by baiting your fighters into saying things that will get them in trouble. Hmm, maybe you shouldn't let them talk to Ariel Helwani...

Exactly how many years of treatment would it take? Phone Post 3.0
