Dana White hosts media luncheon to promote UFC 169, probably regrets inviting rabble-rousing reporter T.J. Simers

USA TODAY Sports

UFC President Dana White was involved in a heated back-and-forth with a feisty reporter who decided to call out the Las Vegas fight boss on a bevy of subjects during a recent media luncheon.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White hosted a media luncheon earlier today (Jan. 27, 2014) to promote this weekend's (Sat., Feb. 1, 2014) UFC 169 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which goes down in Newark, New Jersey.

Plenty of members if the mixed martial arts (MMA) media were in attendance to pick the brain of the Las Vegas, Nevada, fight boss.

One thing White wasn't prepared for, though, was having to deal with the Orange County Register's T.J. Simers, who held nothing back and tried his best to call out White on a bevy of subjects.

MMA Weekly's Erik Fontanez was live on the scene and luckily for us, he tweeted the heated back-and-forth exchanges between White and Simers.

Tough customer.

That's it for now, Maniacs. However, the luncheon was filled with other juicy nuggets, which we will pass along to you as soon as possible.

Fingers crossed video of the confrontation emerges, too.
