UFC President Dana White, who once got physical with his wife then slapped her twice in a club on camera, had a fiery response to learning that former UFC Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling and top bantamweight contender Merab Dvalishvili were friends. Bristling over the subject, White unleashed a torrent of abuse at friendships and those who have them.
“Everyone in this room and everybody that watches this video knows how I feel about forming genuine connections with other people,” White said. “Yeah, I hate it. Why did you even come into this world if that’s the attitude you’re going to take?”
White reiterated that the thought of someone putting their relationship with and feelings for another person over their own financial and professional interests was among the most abhorrent things he could possibly imagine, and that anyone choosing to do so is a scumbag who should consider whether the UFC is the right place for them. White is expected to appear on new champion Sean O’Malley’s podcast to discuss his anger at the existence of friendship and how its followers have no business in the UFC, as well as other topics like Conor McGregor’s return, Dana White’s Power Slap Season 2 and the hottest women in the UFC’s Strawweight division.
