dana white WWE

Move over Vince McMahon, UFC president Dana White has officially made his pro wrestling debut in Memphis alongside longtime WWE ring announcer, Jerry “The King” Lawler. Dana White hasn’t minced words when discussing the legitimacy of the WWE in the past, but has acknowledged the promotional prowess of Vince McMahon on numerous occasions. Now it looks like uncle Dana is starting to come around on the idea of taking part in the predetermined phenomenon. For some reason footage of the match Mr. White was involved in included more action against…

Yair Rodriguez cut by the UFC for refusing fight

In what continues to be a strange night for the UFC, it apparently gets worse as the LA Times reported that the UFC has cut Yair Rodriguez for refusing proposed bouts against Zabit Magomedsharipov and Ricardo Lamas at UFC 227. Yair Rodriguez, we hardly knew ya. The 25-year-old Mexican American featherweight prospect was reportedly set to fight fellow young prospect, Zabit Magomedsharipov at UFC 227 just days ago. It was over a year ago that fans watched in horror as Rodriguez battered the legendary and past his prime B.J. Penn…

The Problem with GSP vs. Nate Diaz

UFC president Dana White created headlines when he revealed that a bout between Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz is in the works at 155-pounds. Here’s why it’s a bad idea. Dana White went on the UFC’s state-sponsored podcast, UFC Unfiltered, to drop some heavy news on what the promotion has in store for us in the near future. Along with confirming the Luke Rockhold and Alexander Gustafsson non-title match up, White stated that the 36-year-old Georges St-Pierre could face Nate Diaz in his lightweight debut this August at UFC 227.…

UFC’s Unhealthy Obsession with Title Fights

The UFC has been prioritizing title fights over fighter health for some time now, and it’s fair to say they’re hurting themselves in the long run. The UFC 223 main event is a good example of the UFC shooting themselves in the foot. UFC president, Dana White has been adamant on pay-per-view events strictly being headlined by title fights for some time now. UFC 139 was one of the few pay-per-view events that was not headlined by a title fight and it turned out to be one of the greatest…

GSP vs Bisping is Off: Yoel Gets the Title Shot!

I thought 2016 was supposed to be the year of the superfight? Mighty Mouse was talking about going up to bantamweight, McGregor is supposed to fight Mayweather, and GSP was looking to become a two weight world champ. We’re halfway through the year and not only are we superfight-less but there’s only been three title fights. That’s if you don’t count Holm vs. de Randamie and I don’t count Holm vs. de Randamie. Hell it doesn’t even feel right counting Woodley vs. Thompson 2. Rough start to the year for the UFC, and it…

Is Chuck Liddell Making a Comeback?

The rumor mill has been churning as of late with the possibility of an iceman comeback. Roughly six and a half years ago Chuck Liddell announced his retirement at the behest of his former manager, now UFC president Dana White. To encourage him to make that decision Dana gave him, what was assumed to be, a largely ceremonial but well paying job as the Vice President of Business Development. Well that presumably cushy gig came to an end last year shortly after WME-IMG bought the UFC for 4 billion dollars. Without that…
