    One I think he got himself very stired up. But he also speaks for a small faction. UFC though gaining popularity is not like the NFL Chairman saying something like that. EHH we all say things in the heat of being pissed. Is he important enough to loose sleep over. NO!

    Dana? Have you noticed that the guys on the show have gone from real guys with potential to underwear model types who can't fight. I have to raise an eyebrow at that. Him calling a girl a faggot...atleast she doesn't watch girls roll around in lycra. If he is gay, what a job! I bet he gets more ass than than a bus stop bench.

    I listened to only about 1/2 that rant and now I can't even remember what the "F" in UFC stands for....It's like there's only 1 F word in the world right now in my head...

    I just watched the vid. It's just a rant. Someone in the press is trying to make UFC come off as anti-homo or anti-woman...whatever.

    Let's get it on!

    The slur was wrong, but Dana White is not a homophobe.

    How many times can you say fuck in one sentence, tough guy. Whoa, but wait, he doesn't call loretta a faggot, he calls the guy she quoted one. He calls her a bitch, right after he patts beefy on the shoulder.

    What do you expect of someone who promotes fights for a living? Certainly not intelligent discourse.

    All that link proved was that he wants gay men as consumers. While he claims there is no homophobia in his business that, in no way, has any regards to his internal homophobia.

    I think our culture's use of "that is so gay!" is worse than our culture's use of "faggot".

    paradigms don't just shift of their own accord. in order for this "paradigm shift" to happen, we specifically don't just "deal with it."

    The UFC was so much better when they were all chemically enhanced. Now it's like watching a bunch of skinny girls call each other names. Looks like the president is the root of the problem.

    He's making a nice living from the UFC and the popularity of MMA, so I really don't know why he's got his panties in a bunch. Just enjoy the money while you got it.

    I am a UFC fan. It is now the most exciting sport in the world. I am sorry to hear that Dana White used that word and that language. He always drops f-bombs. He is from Boston and colorful, to say the least. But that does not make it acceptable. I hope he learns from the mistake and addresses it. UFC has a ton of gay fans. Me and my friends included.

    But I do not crucify for one mistake. We all make em. I just hope he apologizes for that stupid remark. Business-wise, he would be stupid not to and I really do not think he is a homophope. I have followed him and the sport for years. I say dumb remarks about lesbians which I wish I could take back. I hope he just does the right thing and publicly apologizes. If he has not already.

    I think, seriously, he used the term in the prison tough guy slang. Not that it is right. It is not. He needs to be called on it. But he was not talking about a gay fighter, or gay fans, he was in the moment using tough guy slang for a pussy. That itself is troublesome, but not unique to Dana White. I think every UFC and WEC fan (they own WEC also), should send him an email to tell hm what you think. But is he homophobic? No, I really do not think so.

    Ted Rybka (a friend of mine) from GLAAD has received an apology from him on this.

    It's only an issue for me because they are so stupid as to not understand that they shouldn't disregard and possibly offend one of their largest followings - GAY MEN! I also know some lesbos that enjoy it as well!
