Seems like the adventures of Dana White continues even after he has removed certain fighters for underperforming in the business. He has been known to rule the business with an iron fist, but certain fighters don’t like it – like Oluwale Bamgbose.
Dana has been known far and wide for being ruthless with his fighters. He doesn’t really hesitate to cut fighters from the roster if they’re underperforming; like Darren Till recently or if they don’t comply with UFC’s terms and conditions like Francis Ngannou recently.
One such fighter was Bamgbose. He was with UFC and was removed from the roster by Dana when he was struggling financially. Dana didn’t even stop to consider the implications, which made Bamgbose call him a ‘Hitler’.

Dana White may rule over the business like a shrewd king but he hasn’t failed to deliver the exciting matchups that fans ask for. Sure, there might be some fighters who draw the short end of the straw but such is business’s rule – Survival of the Fittest.
