Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has lost his mind after seasoned fighter Dennis Hallman donned Speedo-type trunks during a recent match. Follow the jump for the full brief.
White is so "pissed and embarrassed" by Hallman's garb that he gave the opponent of the Speedo-clad fighter a bonus and has threatened to fire all the UFC employees "who let him walk out with those things on." [Sic].
“I’m seriously pissed off at the guys who work for us who let him walk out with those things on,” White said. “I’ve never been so embarrassed to be in the UFC.”
Later, he said he was “horrified” by the moment.
“It was as bad as bad can get,” he said, shaking his head.
Hallman speculates that White's intense reaction might be due to homophobia—homophobia he seems to share after receiving word that he experienced a split-second wardrobe malfunction, which some fans have discovered when pausing the broadcast.
“People are sick, disgusting perverts,” Hallman said. “They’ll break the film down frame-by-frame so they can get a little ball action. That’s kind of strange. They have problems.”
I still fail to see what the outrage is all about in a sport that's pretty damn homoerotic as it is.
