UFC president Dana White and rapper Eminem did an interview with Michael Eaves on SportsCenter ahead of UFC 257. A clip from that interview (which nobody must have seen) went viral after Brendan Schaub posted it.
In the clip Eminem appears to trash White by telling him his opinion "doesn't matter." For some reason the full interview can't be found so we can't get the context of his comments.
But have no worries Eaves says it will be available on Saturday.
"The best part about your opinion is that it doesn't matter. And if every fighter that you had listened to your opinion when you doubted them, you wouldn't have a fucking league."

Why was the rapper doing an interview with White on SportsCenter in the first place? The UFC is using the rapper's new track "Higher" in their promo video for Conor McGregor's return to the octagon.

Dana White might just add himself and Eminem to the fight card after this. Sure it could just be for promo purposes, but I have a feeling Eminem isn't a fan of White's support of Trump.
