UFC Quick Quote: 'Childish' Dana White is a little errand bitch for the Fertittas

"How can you respect a guy that runs a company and goes on Twitter rants, who calls people all the names that he calls people? I think it's childish. He's supposed to be the president of a major company, a billion dollar company, and that's how he acts? You don't see Roger Goodell doing things like that and you won't see Scott Coker going on Twitter and telling people they look goofy or fat. Or, ‘we got that many years out of you, thanks for your money.' Come on. It's embarrassing. I don't want to work for a guy like that. This is just my opinion, but I think Dana is just the front boy for the Fertittas. He's their little errand bitch. They're losing fans every day because of the things he does. The UFC has done a great job. They built this sport. They put a lot of dollars in, and they took a lot of risk. I can respect the fact that he works his ass off. But there are other things that I can't respect."

Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White went to war with Reebok haters on Twitter? That little escapade (see it here) didn't go over too well with former UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck, who told Bleacher Report that he has no respect for the antics of his "childish" ex-boss. In fact, "Kos" -- who ran out his ZUFFA contract earlier this year before hooking up with former Strikeforce promoter Scott Coker in Bellator MMA -- believes White is nothing more than an "embarrassing" front man for Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, the money behind the mouth. That's not the first time a former UFC fighter has made that sort of claim (see a similar gripe here) and judging by these recent events, it probably won't be the last.
