Dana White Goes Nuclear on ‘Motherf**kin Crack Head’ MMA Fighter for Threatening His Daughter

Dana White's family received a series of threats, mainly against his daughter, and he decided to investigate.

Dana White recently outed a former fighter that sent threatening messages targeting his daughter. 

The UFC President takes a lot of pride in being candid with fans. Opting to engage on social media to answer questions, and call out the occasional troll, White is more than happy to share his unfiltered thoughts with the world, but bringing his family into the conversation is something he simply will not tolerate. 

Dana White publicly asked for information on Instagram user @loganmurphyfuctheufc who had tagged White in a post that specifically targeted his daughter Savannah. The hunt began with White posting a screenshot of the user’s profile with the tag:

“Do any of you know this scummy piece of f*cking sh*t @loganmurphyfuctheufc if you do please give me as much info as you have on him. He wants attention?? He’s gonna get it.” 

Though the original posts have since been deleted, MMA Mania captured screenshots of @loganmurphyfuctheufc’s post and Dana White’s plea for information.

Dana White Confirms Fighter Behind the Message is Brandon Bender

Not long after Dana White’s plea for assistance in identifying the owner of the Instagram account, the UFC President confirmed, “WE GOT HIM!” That post is now deleted, but not before it was revealed that 35-year-old Brandon Bender was the man behind the vile message. 

Bender was a professional fighter from 2006 to 2020, though he had a six-year gap between bouts from 2016 to 2020. During his career, he fought for King of the Cage, BAMMA, Gladiator Challenge, and most notably, Bellator. Under the Bellator banner, he went 2-2. He last appeared inside the cage in January 2020, losing a unanimous decision to Joshua Jones. Overall he went 12-2 as a professional fighter.

It appears that Brandon Bender at one point worked for UFC Gym in Los Angeles. In a screenshot seen below, the profile @ceoufcgym confirmed that Bender had been separated from the company.

“For clarification, Brandon no longer works for UFC GYM. He has been separated for 75 days. His current erratic behaviors are unfortunate and obviously lacks respect.”
