5 UFC Fighters who stood up to Dana White

Monday, June 12, 2017

There are not many professions that allow you to legally punch someone in the face, and, as a matter of the fact, the better you are at it and the more entertaining you are while doing it the more money they will pay you. There are downsides to the profession of mixed martial arts, however; in this line of work you are strictly and randomly subjected to drug testing and actually have to get on a scale and weigh in before you are allowed to do your job.

Can you imagine if Nancy from HR had to step on a scale before she was allowed to clock in? Or what if Drew in Accounting had to take a leave of absence for taking Generic Cialis his buddy brought him back from Thailand?

These are a few of the hardships that the fighters, not technically employees yet, of the Ultimate Fighting Championship face. Like most of us, more than a few of them at times have been upset with their boss, in this case, the infamous Dana White.

Throughout the brief history of our sport, there have been a few, in fact, that have been quite vocal about the way they felt they were being treated or mistreated rather.  Tito Ortiz actually negotiated a boxing match with White to settle their issues; although the match never came to fruition it was a very intriguing and innovative way to solve their differences.

Very few professions are modeled in the way in which the UFC operates which, like anything else, has its upsides as well as downfalls.  In the video below, we will take a look at five UFC fighters who vocally, and very publicly, stood up to Dana White.
