Report: Josh Koscheck Calls Dana White “Childish”, Following Latter’s Twitter Exchange With Angry Fans
By FCF Staff
Josh Koscheck has long been known as someone who speaks his mind, but now that the veteran fighter is no longer employed by the UFC, he’s blasted the promotion’s president, Dana White.
Recently it was announced that Koscheck has signed with Bellator, after being with the UFC for a ten year stretch. The 38 year-old Koscheck recently spoke with Bleacher Report, and while doing so, the outspoken fighter claimed that he took a quick, turn-around bout against Erick Silva in March, because he was anxious to complete his UFC deal.
During the interview, Koshcheck also weighed-in on White’s recent interaction with fans on Twitter, following the firing of cutman Jacob “Stitch” Duran. In some cases, the UFC President insulted angry fans, who lashed out at White regarding the promotion’s decision to let Duran go, after the latter criticized the Reebok uniform deal. Here is some of what Koscheck had to say:
“How can you respect a guy that runs a company and goes on Twitter rants, who calls people all the names that he calls people? I think it’s childish,” Koscheck said. “He’s supposed to be the president of a major company, a billion dollar company, and that’s how he acts? You don’t see Roger Goodell doing things like that.
“And you won’t see Scott Coker going on Twitter and telling people they look goofy or fat. Or, ‘we got that many years out of you, thanks for your money.’ Come on. It’s embarrassing. I don’t want to work for a guy like that.”
Koshcheck’s (17-10) Bellator debut has yet to be announced.
