The UFC president Dana White isn’t known for holding back his opinions against anyone. He is always ready to fire back at critics and people who try to engage in a war of words with him. That is very evident in his media appearances and post-fight pressers.
White also doesn’t hold back against the media and blames them for creating fake narratives. The UFC president sometimes comes under fire for his comments but even then he holds his ground. Be it fighter pay or favouring one fighter over the other, any criticism that is thrown at him is faced head-on by the president.
The UFC was brought by Zuffa in the year 2001. As of now, UFC is owned by WME-IMG. Currently, the UFC is the world’s largest promotion for an MMA organization. From a bankrupt company and a dying sport, White has been successful in turning the once taboo sport of MMA into a global sensation. The promotion now produces events worldwide that showcase 12 weight classes with top-tier talents.
