Dana White leaves reporter speechless with powerful, patriotic defense of free speech: "I guess I'll move on"
We didn't get the expected Bud Light rant from UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland at UFC 297, because he's now the former middleweight champion. He lost a close split decision. I'm sure people will respect the judges' scorecards as they do every close split decision. However, we did get Dana White (who thought Strickland won) shutting a journalismer up with his powerful defense of free speech.
The progressive political journalismer, who has a side hustle in sports, questioned Dana on the "long leash" he gives fighters to say what they want, now that those fighters are getting into areas of what critics call "homophobia" and "transphobia." I'm guessing it was in reference to Strickland's comments from earlier in the week.
We didn't get that far. Dana stopped listening after the world "leash."
"I don't give anybody a leash. A leash? Free speech. I'm gonna control what people say? Tell them what to believe? I don't tell any other human being what to say, what to think and there's no leashes on any of them. What is your question?
Note to progressive political journalismers with a side hustle in sports. Stick to the WNBA. It will prevent you from looking silly like this guy did.
"I was asking that question. I'll move on though."
Yeah, that's probably a good idea.

In the journaismer's defense, he's obviously unfamiliar with the UFC and assumed Dana would bend the knee and apologize like they get everyone else to do. Especially, in Toronto. We saw this last year with Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass proving Exhibit Q of why you don't a) apologize, b) cave to the mob, or c) negotiate with terrorists.
Bass was accused of amplifying a (what critics call) "homophobic" Instagram post. He didn't make a (what critics call) "homophobic" post himself. But he liked or shared (I'm still not sure which) a video that expressed the Christian reasons for boycotting Target. As the Los Angeles Dodgers have taught us it's okay to attack Christians. You just can't make any sudden movements that might upset LGBTQ activists.
Bass was forced to give a sniffling apology. But it wasn't enough for the media, who demanded he lose his job. All because he liked an Instagram post.
Not as bad as the hockey player who didn't want to wear a rainbow jersey and was told by the press to go back to Russia for it.
In the journalisming content creating industry, all of that is the "proper" way to respond to adults having a different opinion than you. Dana White is the weird one for not having his fighters on a short enough "leash."
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
