Brendan Schaub Doesn’t Like Dana White Bashing Fighters

MMA

Longtime eskimo brothers Brendan Schaub and UFC President Dana White have not always been on the best of terms.

Schaub has spent a lot of his life competing in professional MMA and if there is one thing the now retired fighter doesn’t like, its when White bashes other fighters.

“I can’t understand why he does this to fighters,” Schaub said on Below The Belt. “He’s notoriously done this for years and years and years where he just talks shit about the guys. And they’re not doing well. Those guys just lost the biggest fight of their lives, they’re gonna have to pay. And they’re not feeling good about themselves and then the boss, who you’re looking for any amount of approval and it would go so far, you’re the captain of the ship, when you’re shitting on all the employees on the ship, it doesn’t make people feel good. When you try to lead by fear, it doesn’t work. People go, ‘Dana’s worth whatever, 400 million dollars,’ that’s fine. To me, that doesn’t mean you’re a successful leader. That doesn’t mean shit to me. There’s a lot of working wheels that go into making that deal happen. It’s not just him getting it done. What he’s done with the sport is great. He took that torch, ran with it, got it done, sold the company, it’s a major sport now. That’s great. We should tip our hats to him for that. But if you think that with the platform I have I’m not going to criticize you for shitting on these fighters who don’t have much, financially, they don’t have a platform, they have to literally punch other men in the face to make a living. And for you to bring men and women down like that is insane. You’re never going to get a free ride here. Ever. Ever, ever, ever, for as long as I have this microphone in my face, you will always get criticized for that. Always. It’s not cool.”

White and Schaub had a very public battle on social media lately, but White has been silent on the whole situation since Schaub posted a final warning on Twitter a few days ago.

The former UFC fighter cannot even think of a good reason for White to continue bashing MMA fighters.

“Why be mean about it? Why be a bully in this day and age? Why continue to shit on people? You’ve won, man. You’ve won,” Schaub said. “You’re the CEO of a billion dollar company and you’re trying to talk shit to somebody who retired four years ago on social media. What are you doing? What are we doing? Imagine somebody else, the head of a corporation, they’d lose their job. Talk shit to people like that. What the f*ck are you doing? What are you doing? It makes no sense. It makes zero sense.”

Outside of Schaub, a host of other fighters have felt the wrath of the UFC President, with Francis Ngannou being the latest victim after a terrible performance at UFC 226.
