UFC Honcho Dana White

Trashes MMA Legend

MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko ... SUCKS ... and he SUCKS HARD ... this according to UFC president Dana White.

White and Fedor have been at each other's throats for months ... a feud which reportedly began after the legendary Russian fighter -- who many claim to be the greatest mixed martial artist who ever lived -- refused to sign a deal to fight in the UFC.



Fedor's manager reignited the war just last month ... when he compared White to a greedy "dog" who runs the UFC like a prison.

But White fired back last night on his way out of Mastro's in L.A. -- telling photogs, "Fedor sucks man ... you guys need to get with the facts, deal with it ... he sucks. Get over the Fedor thing."

Sounds like a fight that NEEDS to be settled in the Octagon.

Fedor is a shell of his former self no doubt but to say he sucks tells you all you need to know about Dana. How is that Brock Lesnar gravy train working out pal?

Fedors manager is right about Dana White. I have several fighters that I train in the UFC and in order to have my logo put on my fighters trunks the UFC wants ME to pay THEM $100k and to top it off the UFC will only pay travel expenses for ONE corner man and the fighter. The only fighters that make money are Dana Whites patsies that are in the upper echelon of the UFC, the bottom card fighters are lucky to make $1000-$2500 for a fight. That doesn't even cover a weeks training camp expenses. F**k Dana White.

Dana White is a punk. I love MMA and when UFC ate up WEC it was a sad day. He acts all tough, telling people to come find him on Twitter and the best insult he has is to bitch about someone's picture (dude ur a four eyes freak, shut up). When people find him, he's got so many bodyguards, he has people tossed out around him if they even say anything to him.


He can't handle crap and I can't find anyone who actually supports him. He thinks he can buy anyone at all and when he couldn't buy Fedor - he threw a tantrum, cried, whined and blasted him in the media.

He's right even Alistair said there's nothing like the UFC after he finally got a taste of what it's all about. Fedor had so many chances to come to the UFC and prove he was the best in the world and instead he stayed away and beat bums like Brett Rodgers. He was content beating up guys who no longer could hack it in the UFC like Sylvia and Arlovski and then he went on a nice 3 fight losing streak. Now he's fighting nobodies telling himself he's the best while the UFC gets bigger and bigger now showing fights on national tv on FOX.

White is 100% correct. Fedor is worthless now, nobody would pay big money to watch him get his ass handed to him by another fighter who's not one of the tomato cans that helped him build up a long streak. He beats up on former UFC talent that's been sent packing because their wash ups. Fedor is not a legend, he's a has been.
