During the recent press conference for UFC 287, a reporter asked a question that ticked off White. He wanted to know the insights into the latest scuffle between Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland. The question, unfortunately, angered Dana. The president of the UFC thought the reporter was instigating unnecessary fights and wanted him to move on.

When the reporter asked about the scuffle, an enraged Dana White answered, “These two aren’t even fighting, Knock it off.” “Do you have a question about who these guys are fighting or you just wanna start s*** in here?,” questioned Dana White to the reporter. Due to the interruption, the question was then left unanswered.

With the UFC 287 around the corner, fans are excited to witness the fights. In the company of match-ups like Israel Adesanya vs Alex Pereira and Jorge Masvidal vs Gilbert Burns, fans are already making their predictions.
