UFC President Dana White has his fans and he has his haters.

But sunglasses the size of Antonio Silva’s foot aren’t big enough to block his haters from GQ Magazine.

In a recent list article the magazine ranked the top 25 sleaziest guys in sports.

War Machine, the man who allegedly beat his former girlfriend and porn star Christy Mack almost to death then was arrested while beating up another girl at a hotel room where he was hiding comes into the list at 7.

Dana White came in at 8.

The Magazine had this to say about the UFC President;

“Turns out underpaying your UFC employees, bullying rivals, and generally impersonating Don King as a bald white guy doesn’t do wonders for you charisma!”

Dana White responded;

“You’re never going to be able to stop what people say about you, and everybody isn’t going to love you,” White said. “But I don’t take offense to anything. When you’re in a public position like this you’re always going to have people say things about you. Believe me, if I worried about everything that was said about me, I would have been a mess a long time ago. That kind of stuff doesn’t bother me at all, not even a little bit.”

Believe me, if I worried about everything that was said about me, I would have been a mess a long time ago. That kind of stuff doesn’t bother me at all, not even a little bit. It was definitely written by someone who is uneducated about the sport. I’m sandwiched between War Machine and Lance Armstrong. The thing that’s unfortunate is that it’s unfair for the UFC as a brand. UFC pays its fighters very well.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
