UFC President Dana White has never been one to shy away from telling those who represent the MMA media community how he feels about them.
White’s feud with veteran MMA reporter Ariel Helwani is one that has lasted the test of time. You’ll never find Helwani and White rubbing elbows together, and for good reason.
But in the UFC President’s latest rant, he really went off on everyone, to include those who run blog sites… like this one.
Barstool Sports writer Robbie Fox was speaking to White about a video he posted last month where he thanked the UFC boss for flying him out to Las Vegas and covering his trip expenses for the event. See that first below.

In the most recent video posting, Fox said that White did not fly him there as “media” but as an “influencer.”
“Tell the rest of the media who think they’re professional to kiss your f—kin’ ass,” White told Fox on My Mom’s Basement podcast. “Every one of those f—king scumbags are a bunch of unprofessional f—kng douchebags. F—k every one of ‘em. They’re all awful.
“I would love to see which ‘professionals’ are calling you unprofessional,” he continued. “They’re a bunch of f—king bloggers, they’re all full of s—t. They’re not media, they’re bloggers. Big difference. 100 f—king percent. Exactly.”
White continued his tirade…. because why should he stop there?
“Listen. Let me tell you how f—king powerful and influential the media is,” he said. “If it was up to the media, the UFC would have never f—king made it, okay? If it was up to the media, we would have never gone through COVID. If it was up to the media that had any type of influence or power, if they mattered whatsoever, Power Slap would not be doing what it’s doing right now. So, let ‘em f—king talk (raises middle fingers).”
Robbie Fox: I just want to clear the air here, that, and you can confirm this, hopefully, that you didn’t fly me out because I’m a media member, but because of my status as a world-famous celebrity.
