UFC President Dana White is once again throwing a hissy fit over Fedor Emelianenko,
“He’s not even the best heavyweight in the world. To put him on the pound-for-pound list. I think some of these guys don’t even know what pound-for-pound means. It’s just so disrespectful to all the other fighters it’s crazy.”
“Most of these goofy MMA sites, what you have to understand is, these guys are in it for the money. They get paid from all the smaller promotions. They get paid a lot of money from the smaller promotions. So they feel like they have to put some of their guys. That’s the way it works. It’s sick and drives me crazy.”
“It’s not a real pound-for-pound list. Either they don’t know pound-for-pound is or the obvious is they’re being paid.”

Why does Dana stoop so low, when we all know he has a hard-on for Fedor and would sign him if he could. Stick to the facts Dana and keep putting on great shows.
SI’s Josh Gross,
Hey @DanaWhite, which MMA media are taking payoffs for rankings? I’d really love to know. Sincerely. They should be shunned. Proof, please.
