Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has a long and contentious history with the “morons” in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community.

Especially the fat ones.

But this latest batch really has his manties in a bunch. Probably because of the criticism that stems from the organization’s $4 billion sale to WME | IMG last month, one that is expected to change the face of combat sports.

From Bangor Daily News:

“Do you know how many times I’ve heard, ‘Oh my God, the Chuck Liddell era is over, Chuck Liddell is retiring, what’s the UFC going to do? They don’t have stars anymore. Or, ‘Oh my God, the GSP era is over, what are they going to do without GSP?’ Or, ‘Oh my God, the Anderson Silva era is over, what are they going to do without Anderson Silva?’ They say the UFC has peaked — and we just sold it for 4 billion dollars. I can’t read this stuff or listen to these morons who talk about it. They know nothing about the business and they don’t understand how it works. We do.”

I blame the scumbags looking for clicks.

UFC has no shortage of stars at the moment, capitalizing on the drawing power of reigning featherweight champion Conor McGregor. In addition, Ronda Rousey is expected to return later this year.

And let’s not forget about this guy...
