Dana White shuts down ‘full of sh*t fans’ who don’t want Cejudo-Aldo at UFC 250 — ‘Don’t watch it’

New, comments

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, will be getting the next 135-pound title shot when he collides with Henry Cejudo in the UFC 250 pay-per-view (PPV) main event on May 9 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

That booking left a lot of fans aggravated at the way the promotion continues to overlook more deserving contenders to make contests that have the potential to draw more buys or fill more seats, similar to the UFC 248 main event this weekend in Las Vegas.

So what’s the solution?

“Then don’t watch it,” White told TMZ Sports. “People are full of shit. It’s going to be an incredible fight. Aldo absolutely deserves this and Cejudo wants it, and Cejudo isn’t a guy who’s running around looking for easy fights.”

He may not be looking for easy fights, but he has definitely been running around.

The big complaint against the Aldo title shot is that “Junior” was able to cut in front of more deserving contenders (like these guys), despite losing three of his last five, and only got the shot at Cejudo because White thinks the Brazilian should have won his bantamweight debut against Marlon Moraes.

So ... who’s ready to take White’s advice?
