    If you needed some more reasons to hate Dana White and Lorenzo Fertita

    Shit like this seriously makes me not want to give them my business anymore but I know that will only end up hurting the fighters

    Not minimizing it but this is all old news. The UFC hid some test results, some fighters have made homophobic slurs, the sponsor tax, the Reebok deal hurting fighters, and the lawsuit.

    They didn't even mention matchfixing although that was before Zuffa bought UFC i believe And it wasn't really the company but the fighters and managers fixing fights between themselves, but it's till foul play.

    So UFC is on the hook for fighters making "homophobic" comments that weren't even about gay people? The whole reebok/sponsor thing and firing Stitch are pretty fucked up though, and so is letting Vitor fight after testing with bull shark.

    As shady as people think the UFC is I don't think it's even close to as shady as the NFL beneath the surface.

    Video is rather...... weak for something titled 'biggest controversies", lol.

    Yeah, Dana has foul fucking mouth, UFC fights the steroids only when it benefits them and Reebok deal was prison rape type of a deal for most fighters.

    Nothing new.
