Originally scheduled to be headlined by a welterweight showdown between Swedish monster Khamzat Chimaev and tenured fan favorite Nate Diaz, the event was thrown into disarray when Chimaev stepped on the scale 7.5 pounds over the contractually obligated limit. With the event in jeopardy, Dana White and Hunter Campbell worked tirelessly to shuffle the card around and deliver fans an event that many believe was superior to the initial offering.
Following this week’s Dana White’s Contender Series, the UFC President addressed theories about the entire event being intentionally sabotaged by the promotion. Initially, the comments appeared to come from former UFC champion Pat Miletich. That sent Dana White into an expletive-filled tirade before being informed that the theory posed by Miletich matches that of comments made by another former UFC competitor, Brendan Schaub.
“I apologize to Pat Miletich, then. That makes sense,” White said, taking a jab at Schaub.
Brendan Schaub Delivers a Scathing Response to Dana White
Learning of Dana White’s comments towards Pat Miletich and himself, Brendan Schaub posted a scathing response to the UFC boss on Instagram.
“Oh god… here we go again. I’ve been nothing but cool and thought you’d learn from the last time you mentioned my name and got destroyed. Unfortunately, not surprised you’re a bully. Always have been. You put on a pair of designer jeans and some “hip sneakers” and think you’re cool. You’re still a dork with a frat bro vocabulary. Calling me and numerous people “dummy” “dumbass” “f*cking idiot” cause we have questions about “the chaos” at UFC279?
“Also, no one is talking about *gate tickets,* I was referring to *pay per view buys* and how UFC 279 was *trending*… which you don’t release to the public, but will say “it went F*ckin great bros!” Sorry, we just don’t buy what you’re telling us after lying numerous times but the sheep media you pick to attend events don’t have the balls to call you out. Just in the recent press conference you were caught lying about extra compensation to the fighters.
“You need a reality check. You’re surrounded by “Yes men.” You’re not special, you’re not original. You’re a low budget Vince McMahon. Every move you make is a copy cat of that dude. Only thing you have in common is you’re both on steroids and dress like assholes. Need I remind you, your origin story is a failed cardio kick boxing instructor who had two rich friends in high school to fund this business.
“Now go make a “cool” video with the Nelk boys to stay relevant or have your PR team come up with a good press story to distract the fans away from fighter pay and how they have to wear those awful under armor Rock shoes and won’t see a dime. “Dummy” PS. Quit stealing my shows on thicccboy network and recreating it on Fight pass, k?
Also… leave Pat Miletich alone.”
