Dana White Was "Scared" For Shane Burgos Following TKO Loss To Edson Barboza
UFC President Dana White was very concerned about UFC featherweight Shane Burgos following his TKO loss to Edson Barboza at UFC 262.
See what the outspoken promotion's President had to say during last night's post-fight press conference when he was asked about Burgos by MMA Junkie's John Morgan.
Dana White Tells Triller Team To Stop Calling Him
UFC President Dana White is not the biggest fan of what Triller is doing pairing up YouTube stars with retired professional fighters.
The outspoken UFC President went off on the entire Triller team during last night's UFC 262 post-fight press conference.
“Oh my god, don’t even ask me about these idiots,” White said when asked about Triller. “Who gives a sh*t? Does anybody give a sh*t? I don’t give a sh*t what they think. You think I care what Triller thinks? I don’t even take their calls. This idiot calls me everyday. Texts me every day ‘please answer my call, please talk to me, why won’t you talk to me?’ Cause I don’t give a f*ck about you. Do your thing. Leave me alone. F*cking do whatever it is you’re doing. Knock yourself out. I could care less."
“I have no interest in talking to any of those idiots," continued White. "They can do their thing. Do your thing. Stop talking about me. What do you give a sh*t what I’m doing? Go do your thing. I get it but get out of here. What are you doing? I don’t even know what you’re doing. What is this thing you’re trying to build? What are you doing? What do I have to do with it or my guys? Do your thing. What are you doing? Are you starting an MMA organization?”
