UFC President WRECKS the Media Trying to Sabotage Sports Events
At this stage in the pandemic game, there are two groups of people: Those who think it's time to get back to normal and allow people to once again start to make a living and support both themselves and their loved ones, and snitch-ass little b!tches, many of whom have not only been employed this whole time, but work in the media. One might be led to believe media attacks on businesses opening could be political: the simple calculation the economy opening is good for Trump, therefore the economy opening is bad. I'll let the MAGA forums fight that out. But the media does seem to be particularly angry with Trump supporting UFC president Dana White (see UFC PRESIDENT DANA WHITE ENDORSES DONALD TRUMP'S RE-ELECTION and DANA WHITE ON TRUMP HATERS: JUST DON'T TALK ABOUT HIM).
White responded to some in the media with his usual subtle and subdued demeanor. I would have preferred him to finally make it official that it'll be Aljamain Sterling fighting for the vacant bantamweight title. But bashing the press is good too.
UFC President unloads on New York Times in exclusive 'Hannity' interview youtu.be
We were trying to figure out solutions to the problems. How do you bring sports back safely, and health and safety is an issue for us every single weekend. When we were leading up to these events, we had so many, you know, New York Times and so many other media people trying to sabotage the event so that it couldn't happen.
This guy from the New York Times interviewed the president of ESPN, Jimmy Pitaro, for 45 minutes, wasted 45 minutes of his time and never used one of his quotes. You know why? Because they were positive.
I can never understand why it makes some people so angry that other people are allowed to make choices. In the case of the UFC, at least as far as I know, no one is being forced to do anything. Fighters are choosing whether they want to fight or not. Those fighter camps are choosing whether they want to travel with the fighter. They are testing up the wazoo. There's no audience. Everyone is spaced out except for two fighters beating the crap out of each other. Not to mention, the fighters take on what they consider an acceptable risk every time they enter the Octagon. Serious, life-altering injuries, as opposed to a virus. If you think it's wrong that the event is allowed to go on, just don't watch it.
Another company running events in Florida again is All Elite Wrestling, which took all the same precautions, including giving the wrestlers two weeks to self-quarantine prior to running live events again. Yet you still see people complaining over things like 68-year-old Jim Ross being allowed to commentate because he's at risk, even though being 68 years old also makes Jim Ross a grown-ass man who can make his own decisions.
At the end of the day, the biggest faux pas being committed is that Dana White went against what his betters media demanded. So, of course, he needed to be attacked for doing so. That the media thought the plan would work shows they know nothing about White or the UFC.
