Shut up and dance with me
We are back. You know what to do around these parts.
Hit me with your best questions below. As always, everything and anything goes. I’ll answer ‘em on Wednesday’s show.
Again, try to keep them short and sweet, if possible. That increases your chances of having the question answered.
And remember: my mate Louis Gilmour is the mod around these parts, and his job is to select the best 21 or so questions. Good luck, and make ‘em count!
See you TOMORROW on the MMAFighting YouTube channel!
Thanks for sticking up for what's right. During the pandemic, my MMA fandom transitioned from relatively casual to rabid. Unfortunately, the ongoings of the past couple weeks have really put a sour taste in my mouth to start 2023. "Dana White is a good fight promoter, but he also....
- Physically abused his wife in a public setting;
- Fails to give fighters long-term healthcare, pensions, or fair pay for their very risky jobs;
- Slanders the integrity of MMA journalists, his contractors, his competitors, and others;
- Verbally harasses people and lies for personal gain;
- Turns the other way when American fighters take money for photo ops with a Chechen warlord."
My question is simple, how did Dana White craft such a bubble of invincibility that Endeavor, ESPN, UFC Colleagues, and many fighters do not speak up when something like this happens? How can he continue to get away with things without any repercussions?
Thanks Ariel, you the man and PSA...
Shame on Ari Emanuel and Endeavor, shame on the rest of the UFC brass, shame on ESPN and Stephen A for being soft when they could have shed light on the issue, and shame on those of you defending a man who abused his wife.
Men - Don't ever lay your hands on a woman. It's not ok.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk and most importantly... RIP Victoria Lee -- prayers and love up for her family.
With everything going on in Brasil do you think the Jan 21st PPV runs any risk of being moved or cancelled? For example, im sure authorities have to provide a police presence at all sporting events. If the political unrest continues I doubt they could provide it. Interested to hear your thoughts or if you remember a similar situation happening in a past event.
