Dana White relates to Derek Carr, ready to fight members of MMA media

Let this be a warning to all the (other) “scumbags looking for clicks.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president, Dana White, can understand why Oakland Raiders quarterback, Derek Carr, wants to beat the shit out of ESPN analysts Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith.

Probably because the Las Vegas fight boss also receives his fair share of criticism from the media, and while he’s not naming names, there is a certain “douchey” reporter who’s been under his skin for the last decade.

No, it’s not me (I’m not a reporter).

“Hey, there’s some media guys out there I wanna fight too,” White told ESPN MMA. “You wouldn’t do it, but I get where he’s coming from. It’s tough. I’ve been in the business for a long time now, it’s tough for these guys to sit back and hear these guys criticize them and rip them apart every day.”

Thank goodness White never does that amirite.

White has something of an up-and-down relationship with the mixed martial arts (MMA) media, but I think he would rather have us than “uneducated assholes” like this guy. And I guess Darren Rovell is fair game now that he’s gone from ESPN.

And hey, Tito Ortiz once worked as a reporter ... just saying.
