We’re not living in a normal world anymore.
Weight classes don’t matter, title shots are handed out randomly, Bruce Buffer disappears without any acknowledgement from the UFC, and Dana White is jacked. What is going on?
But some things never change, like Dana White tossing people under the bus when they’re no longer valuable to him, or just when he needs to flex a bit.
The title does say fighters, but we’ve included a few other UFC employees who have felt his wrath as well.
After GSP’s last fight against Hendricks, Dana completely threw him under the bus. For starters, he told the press at the conference that GSP wasn’t going to be able to make it because was on his way to the hospital. Then, someone came backstage and snatched up GSP’s belt, he never got his belt back either.
Dana went on to criticize GSP at the press conference, to a point where it was just making everyone uncomfortable. Saying you tought the decision was bad one thing, but Dana White took the hate to 11.
Years later, when GSP is ready to return to the UFC, the new owners were saying that fans didn’t know who GSP was anymore and they’d have to spend a fortune on building up his name, another blatant sign of disrespected from the UFC to one of their biggest stars and best role models for the sport.
