It is no secret that lightweight fighter Al Iaquinta and the UFC aren’t on the best of terms at the moment.
Iaquinta has now taken shots at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series as he wants the UFC President to boot rapper Snoop Dogg from the show.
The lightweight contender took his case to Twitter:
What other sport has an alternate broadcast with an ignorant rapper mocking its athletes?— Al Iaquinta-- (@ALIAQUINTA) August 5, 2017
While Iaquinta clearly wants the rapper off the show, there are currently no plans for that to happen.
Another UFC fighter did come out in support of Iaquinta and that is welterweight contender Matt Brown:
Agreed https://t.co/8NqbQlO0zq— Matt Brown (@IamTheImmortal) August 5, 2017
Snoop Dogg is part of the Snoop Cast commentary team opposite UFC Hall Of Fame member Urijah Faber. It is just one of two commentary options the show offers every Tuesday Night.
