Dana White Makes Statement About Extortion Case
“I just found out that a b*ll s**t lawsuit was filed against me yesterday,” said Dana.
“This guy went to federal prison for trying to extort me over five years ago. Now he’s hired a lawyer who is also a convicted felon, and he’s trying to extort me again for $10 million. He got no money from me last time and he won’t be getting any money from me this time. I look forward to the court dismissing this quickly so I can get rid of these scumbags forever.”
Ramos and his Criminal Past
Back in 2015, Ramos also attempted to get Dana to pay him “hundreds of thousands” of dollars. Allegedly, Ramos had footage of a sex tape in which White appeared. Dana made it clear that he believes the issue will be resolved quickly. Maybe then, he’ll be able to focus on pressing forward with UFC 249.
