Media Watch: Dana White Responds To ESPN’s Investigation Into UFC Fighter Pay

By FCF Staff

Just one day after the premiere of ESPN’s investigative feature scrutinizing the fairness of UFC fighter purses, UFC President Dana White shot back with a rebuttal to the segment that aired on the sports network’s “Outside The Lines” program.

“ESPN doesn’t care about this sport,” proclaimed White in his response video that can be viewed below. “ESPN hates this sport. They won’t even cover it. They don’t do the great stories about this brand and about this sport that should be done. They don’t tell stories about the fighters. Have you ever seen any in-depth great story about UFC fighters on ESPN? Hell no, you don’t. You see this garbage ‘Outside the Lines’ BS.

“They’re dirty. They lie, and they never really give you all the facts.”
