An announcement was recently made that UFC Fight Pass would air a special X-1 World Events vs. Knockout Promotions (KOP) card on Friday, March 22. The event would’ve also have segments taped for a future edition of Dana White Lookin’ For A Fight.
However, after some reporting and research from Fightful’s James Lynch, it would appear that the event will not be broadcast on UFC Fight Pass and won't have segments aired on Dana White Lookin' For A Fight.
Lynch actually pointed out the fact that KOP promoter Josh Medley had posted racist items on social media, with Lynch taking that information to Twitter in late 2018:
Looks like KOP owner Josh Medley is STILL trying to put on events. Josh was outed earlier this year as a racist when screenshots of him using the n-word came to light. Josh then deleted all of his social media accounts. He's a black eye in this sport, DO NOT support KOP pic.twitter.com/6wBdU9pV9E— James Lynch (@LynchOnSports) December 21, 2018
The reporter would then post the following on Twitter earlier today:
Really disappointed seeing @UFCFightPass pickup KOP on their live events schedule. Those that don't know owner Josh Medley was outed last year as a racist when screenshots of him using the n-word came to light. Josh deleted his social media accounts & has shown little remorse pic.twitter.com/XEYqn05UUb— James Lynch (@LynchOnSports) February 11, 2019
A Twitter user by the screen name of MMAMYERS would post screen shots of Medley’s past usage of the N-word:
One of the producers for Dana White Lookin’ For A Fight would get contacted by Lynch, which would lead to Lynch making the following announcement via Twitter:
UPDATE - Just spoke to the producer of "Lookin For A Fight" who told me they were unaware of this information. After finding out, they will not be promoting any KOP events going forward on UFC FIght Pass. https://t.co/5zePnwIegI— James Lynch (@LynchOnSports) February 12, 2019
There has been no comment from KOP promoter Josh Medley on the announcement and the event is not listed on the UFC Fight Pass schedule at this time.
