UFC President Dana White Screams ‘Fag’ But Didn’t Mean to Offend Anyone

We’ll make this clear up front: We don’t know much about Ultimate Fighting Championship, except there are fewer rules and more opportunities to get the shit kicked out of you than in, say, boxing. But then UFC president Dana White — yes, the leader of the organization — had to renew every stereotype of bigotry you might assume his organization would harbor.

After a Wednesday report by Loretta Hunt of Sherdog.com about new credentialing rules for fighters’ handlers that quoted anonymous sources, White unleashed a slur-laden YouTube response — because, again, THIS IS HOW AMERICA HOLDS DISCOURSE NOW — filled with derogatory terms for the mentally challenged, gays, and assholes. (He dared refer to assholes as “sleazebags.” The audacity!)

White, in the YouTube video, said the story was “absolutely . . . retarded,” and called Hunt “a . . . moron,” explaining a UFC fighter “gets so many credentials,” and can distribute them to whomever the fighter chooses. White noted that when he used to manage Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, he would buy his own tickets to UFC events before being hired by Zuffa executives Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta.

White added that some fighters’ managers are “dirty . . . sleazebags” and said the premise of Hunt’s story was flawed and criticized her use of unidentified sources.

In the video, White also used a derogatory term for a homosexual. [LAT]

White, supposedly, “expressed remorse” for the video, and said he “never intended to hurt the gay community.” Hah! No, but really, he’s sorry! Watch!

He supports gay issues! He only attacks people who attack him! He would never attack someone because of their sexual orientation!

Way to break the stereotype of muscle head jock guys who throw around the word “fag” without actually meaning to offend anyone.

      The NY Times did a profile piece on an openly gay UFC fighter who lives with his boyfriend down in SoCal. I find it very hard to believe he is the only one. For my part, my only concern with UFC is that for some inexplicable reason it sometimes finds its way onto the Sci Fi channel.

      Whatever. I hate the word faggot. I’ve said this before. However, dude stood up and made his apology when really who would have cared if he hadn’t? I think it took more balls for him to put the apology out there and to make it clear that queer bashing isn’t cool than it did to call someone a faggot in the first place. We’ve accepted the shaft from more important people with less of a hissy fit, yes?

      silver lining, friends: he felt compelled to apologize. sincere or not, that’s a demonstration of progress.

      p.s. try taking a shot every time the f-bomb drops in vid 1. wow.

      I’m a gay man that has trained in MMA and I am a huge UFC fan. I was never turned on during any of my fights. I am more concerned about winning my match than to cop a feel. If your concerned about fighting a gay opponent that says one of two things about you. One either your afraid of your own repressed sexuality or two your afraid you could lose to a “fag”. Otherwise who cares! I’m a fighter and I love it!
