I’m so glad that journalism is alive and well in 2015. We can have Dana White go on FOX Sports to discuss the tough issues. Men with journalistic integrity such as Daniel Cormier and Kenny Florian, as you may know, are some of the hardest-hitting journalists in the sport today. Both of them were stolen from Vice’s middle-eastern war coverage by FOX so they could focus on covering what they know best – the rough and tumble world of ultimate fighting.
It’s good that Dana can go on these jaunts to the FOX studios, because otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to truly formulate the gravity of a press release or even a presser in our puny little minds. We’d need a press release, a presser and then have Dana’s mind, body and essence poked and prodded by these to monoliths of journalistic integrity.
You know they’re going to read the tough questions off those cue cards (or teleprompter) and you know they’re chuckles are that of knowing exactly how hard it is for their boss in 2015. He gets crapped on, but simply can’t catch a break. Oh well, he’ll just import some snow to Nevada and sled down a hill he built in his driveway over and over again until he makes himself feel better.
Watch the clip below in which Dana White talks PEDs and how great the Reebok deal is by being rejected by his top fighters.
“You know what’s funny? No matter what we do there’s always some negative guy out there that will have some negative thing to say about it. Even a (PED) policy as tough as this, people talk about unions and things like that? If there was a union this would have never happened.
“This would have never happened with a union. This is the best thing to do for the sport and for the athletes.”
