The UFC held the first live sporting event since the quarantine began, last Saturday in Jacksonville. As expected there were those who were critical how the event was executed.
A writer for The New York Times wrote an article that criticized the UFC with the headline, "U.F.C.’s Coronavirus Plan Is Careful. Its Enforcement Has Been Spotty."
Kevin Draper alleged in his article that the fighting promotion played it fast and loose with their coronavirus precautions and didn't follow through with what they promised the state of Florida.
White was asked about the article and didn't hold back at all:
"Fuck that guy. Fuck that guy. This fucking story was huge. They did killer traffic. Now they’re writing stories, three a week, and they’re posting live results. I don’t give a shit what this guy thinks or what he has to say, what he writes. Good for him, he’s pulling traffic. I don’t give a fuck. Don’t give a fuck."

How do you not love Dana White? You don't have to agree with him, I happen to on this, but he's nonstop entertainment.
There isn't the head of any other sport who gives less of a shit and I find it refreshing.
