UFC President Dana White wants a sex tape lawsuit dismissed.
Ernesto Joshua Ramos filed a lawsuit against White this past April, accusing White of breaking a deal that would’ve seen White pay Ramos $450,000 for signing a non-disclosure agreement in April of 2016.
The non-disclosure agreement was allegedly made so that Ramos wouldn’t release or name White in an alleged sex tape involving White and a stripper in Brazil. White and his legal team have now filed legal documents this past Monday to attempt to get the lawsuit dismissed.
“Some parties never learn,” White’s lawyers said in the court papers, filed late Monday (via the Las Vegas Review-Journal). “After pleading guilty to a felony of attempting to extort defendant Dana White and spending nearly a year in federal prison, plaintiff Joshua Ramos now seeks this court’s assistance to complete what he could not finish the first time — separating Mr. White from a substantial amount of money. Just because Ramos is carrying out the latest scheme through the artifice of a civil lawsuit does not make it any less proper. Fortunately for the court and defendants, Ramos’ attempts at civil extortion are just as inept as his prior criminal endeavors.”
Ramos has already served prison time for trying to extort $200,000 from White in the past, which White didn’t pay. District Judge David Jones has set the date of Wednesday, October 7 for a hearing to potentially dismiss the lawsuit.
