- Never one to shy away from a public feud, UFC president Dana White recently fired back at former welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre for making disparaging remarks about the promotion.
"I'm shocked," White said at the UFC Fight night 35 post-fight show. "When Georges St-Pierre said he wanted to do the extra drug testing, he wanted to do it to prove he's not on drugs. I've heard he's mad at me that I said I thought Johny Hendricks won the fight. Be a man and talk to me face-to-face. If GSP wants to talk to us like a man he can pick up the phone and call us. This came out of left field. The whole thing is shocking."
In addition to expressing his displeasure with the UFC's handling of drug testing, GSP asserted that the UFC is essentially a monopoly, which leaves fighters in a bad spot for negotiations. in response, White went with his usual defense, pointing out that Bellator is owned by the media giant Viacom.
"Viacom is our competitor and has a 40-billion dollar market cap. That's our competitor. We'll never be that big. There are a lot of other fight companies out there," he said. "Are we the best? Yes. But it's far from a monopoly."
It looks like the gloves are off now and, if White's past with discontented champions (see: Randy Couture) is any indicator, this will get uglier before it gets better.
