UFC News: Dana White to UFC 265 critics: ‘Shut the f*ck up’
Not everyone was thrilled with the matchmaking skills of Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White when it comes to the topic of the UFC 265 interim heavyweight title bout between Ciryl Gane and Derrick Lewis.
The August headliner set for Houston’s Toyota Center drew criticism from fighters, agents, and fans who felt he unceremoniously ruled out new heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou for the next division title fight.

In his usual unfiltered terms, White lashed back and defended his reasoning behind booking the fight.
War of words between White and Team Ngannou
Marquel Martin, Ngannou’s agent, started a direct war of words with UFC boss over social media when the fight was first announced on June 29. White called Martin “full of sh*t” in one part of the lengthy exchange.
Ngannou won the heavyweight title with a knockout over Stipe Miocic three months ago. But White said no one in Ngannou’s camp could be shocked, claiming they informed him “several times” the UFC 265 bout on August 7 was being scheduled.
Martin kept the heat on White to be transparent with fans about what went down.
