Today's Mixed Martial Arts News and Analysis Headquarters

Dana White has never been shy about expressing his feelings regarding the mixed martial arts press but this latest statement may be his most militant.

The UFC’s lawyers have demanded a retraction from www.cagepotato.com regarding a post they made insinuating, albeit in a humorous fashion, that Dana White had bet on the outcome of UFC fights in the past.

The claim that Mr. White would financially wager on the outcome of a UFC event is outrageous in the extreme.

Indeed, in the verified complaint we are presently preparing for Mr. White’s signature upon his return from Abu Dhabi, Mr. White expressly states under oath that at no time in the history of his association with the UFC has he ever financially wagered on the outcome of a UFC event.

UFC Attorney Donald J. Campbell

Mr. Campbell further explained that under Nevada law a demand for retraction is the first required step in the filing of a lawsuit seeking punitive damages against a party that has maliciously published defamatory statements about another.

The screenshot below shows Exhibit A.

UPDATE: Cagepotato has officially retracted the comment and released the following statement.

    I find it utterly ridiculous that UFC sponsors one of their own fighters. There are so many issues with that, it’s hard to even begin…

    • David G says:

      I find it utterly ridiculous when people make claims that they couldn’t begin to justify and just say “there are so many issues I can’t even think of where to start”. Namely, you can’t think of where to start because your mindless hate has no start. It’s irrational and baseless, which is why you have no real argument.

  2. Travis says:

    Dude did you even read the article?

  3. Yael Grauer says:

    I agree that there are issues with an organization sponsoring one of its own fighters. It is a clear conflict of interest.
