Dana White can be a bit of an irritable guy. Or at the very least he tends to be irritated often. White is often irritated with the media, referees, and even fans, but it is fighters who get under his skin the most.
White has expressed frustration with many fighters, but to qualify for this list a fighter must have gotten him so upset that he publicly buried them. Luckily there is no shortage of fighters who have done just that.
Here are seven UFC Fighters who made Dana White explode…
“UFC 151 will be remembered as the event Jon Jones and Greg Jackson murdered.”- Dana White.
Jon Jones has been frustrating Dana White long before he failed a pre-UFC 200 drug test. And while UFC 200 was still a success despite the last-minute change of main event, UFC 151 was not.
The “UFC Ghost Card” as it has been referred to was the first UFC PPV to ever be cancelled. The card was supposed to be on September 1st 2012, but after Dan Henderson was pulled due to injury, Jones refused a replacement fight with Chael Sonnen. Greg Jackson apparently felt that Chael Sonnen had been preparing for Jones and didn’t think there would be enough time for Jones to prepare for a change in opponent.
White was furious with having to cancel the card when no replacement main event could be booked. It was no secret who he blamed.
“This is one of the most selfish, disgusting decisions that doesn’t just affect you. This is affecting 16 other lives, their families, kids are going back to school. The list goes on and on of all the things, the money that was spent for fighters to train and the list goes on and on. Like I said, I don’t think this is going to make Jon Jones popular with the fans, sponsors, cable distributors, television network executives or other fighters.”
