Monday Hangover: Dana White
This week’s Monday Hangover is suffered by Dana White.
With Brock Lesnar’s retirement after a TKO loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141, Dana White now enters his new, massive UFC on Fox deal without his massive superstar heavyweight.
I am certain that the executives at Fox were not amused.
At the Post-Fight Press Conference, Dana White was visibly ill. He said several times that he was not feeling well. Now, it would be dishonest of me to imply that he was nauseous because he had just received a diatribe from Fox, but could that have contributed to his nausea? Certainly.
So, while the UFC is poised to experience a record year and MMA is about to get even bigger with the promotional, mainstream push that Fox will give it, Dana White is having to move forward without his (literally?) biggest star.
So, have a cup of strong coffee, take some ibuprofen and eat something greasy, Dana White. You have this week’s Monday Hangover.
