Dana White spoke to the media yesterday, mainly about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s situation and Georges St-Pierre’s return to the octagon. However, in one point during an interview with The Buzzer, he was asked about the one thing that has become a trend in the UFC and that now apparently every fighter talks about as soon as they win a championship, or some fighter even after just winning a fight: ‘The Money Fights’.
Dana White’s angry reaction came as a little bit of a surprise, specially considering he was probably the main responsible for allowing this situation to emerge by protecting McGregor and letting him do whatever he wanted. Conor McGregor did the rest, destroying competition, disrespecting people and being arrogant turned out to be the perfect combination to build the idol of the new generations.
“Guys are talking about ‘Money Fights’ and I’m like YOU’RE NOT a money fight. You’re gonna make whatever you’re gonna make.”
