People, you knew this was coming. If Dana White was an honorary member of the X-men, his mutant power would be the ability to completely demolish your self-esteem within seconds. Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports interviewed Dana White to see if he could expand on his ‘:)’ tweet that was seen moments after the post-fight antics went down at Strikeforce Nashville.
“Now, they’re stuck with a bush league, C-level promotion that will probably be out of business next month. And what you saw on Saturday is the kind of thing that happens when you put a product like that on national television.”
“When have you seen anything remotely close to that happen at a UFC event?. What kind of ridiculous commentary was that? That was an idiotic thing to say. And then he was yelling at them to stop, telling them they are on national television. That was just another example of how bush league they are.”
“You never should gamble on fights. They bet on (Melvin) Manhoef, (that he would beat Robbie) Lawler. Lawler was very unhappy and they wanted to get rid of him, but it backfired because he knocked Manhoef out. Then they treated Shields like (expletive), let his contract expire and they put all their money on Dan Henderson. Now, Shields destroys Henderson and look where they’re at. That’s not how you do business.”
Ouch. If you listen real close, you can hear Dana White’s words roundhouse kicking the Strikeforce headquarters in San Jose, CA. [Source]
