White, the UFC and many of its fans are thin-skinned babies who can't take an ounce of the criticism they dish out.

White is an awful human being that lacks basic human decency. Dana White is garbage, his sport is garbage and anyone who watches it is a garbage collector.
Wow.... classy guy. Why does an MMA columnist seem to know nothing about the sport?

Well, to me, you're free to hate on Dana, a LOT of people don't like the guy,
and in fairness he is a bald loudmouth, but to say the entire sport is garbage and talk bad about its fans?

Apparently Freeman doesn't frequent the MMA boards. As a columnist, you think he'd realize the die-hard fans talk a lot of crap on Dana as well.

Sounds like someone is in love with Loretta Hunt!

Though I don't agree with calling the fans of any sport 'garbage' is not very professional I do agree with the dana part sortof..All sports has their low-level scumbag fans and all have their loyal who know more than any sportscasters as well.
Dana does need to tone it down abit if he wants the sport(okay just his UFC) to be recognized and respected. He can't go on his rants(though funny sometimes) all the time he needs to pick and choose when to do them. For this I also blame the owners they could easily put a crack down on Dana,but seem to like the 'boxing promotions' attitude.
Sportscasters need to watch the sport more often before making accusations like that. Maybe CBS needs to take a page from ESPN,and have casters who enjoy the sport cover the sport. Don't cover the sport just because its the 'new thing' to do.
In the end its upto Dana/UFC to represent MMA as a mainstream sport and not some backyard brawls..They have to be more professional in presenting the sport(do good most of the time) and promote their fighters(champs or no champs some guys are just easily promotable). Shy away from bashing other promoters,fighters,and reporters take a step above and beyond it. Treat the fighters right,ask them to do charity work,and do the same as a company it will help in the long run.
