Boxing Promoter Bob Arum disses UFC President Dana White
By John Benz, Doghouse Boxing (April 4, 2009)  
When you are the president of the UFC, you can bet anything you say will be open for criticism. Such was the case earlier this past week when Dana White, UFC's president took to the YouTube airwaves to blast an article that was published by Sherdog.

In the YouTube video, White goes on a rant of obscenities at the reporter who wrote a story White did not like. Reporter Loretta Hunt of Sherdog wrote a story about new restrictions by UFC in regards to the distribution of backstage credentials to fighters' agents and managers. What set off White, include anonymous quotes from managers who speculate the restrictions were intended to minimize their roles so that UFC would have more control over the combatants.

In the video by White, he uses a derogatory term for a homosexual. In regards to White's rant, Boxing Promoter Bob Arum was quoted by the LA Times.

When told of White's comments, Arum was not impressed, dissing White, Arum stated that White is "a little too much of a loose cannon. He's nuts, man."

Personally, I like Dana White and think he is one of the best things going for the UFC.
