Morning Report: Fallout From a Day Dana White Would Probably Like to Forget
Apr 25, 2012 - One of Dana White’s favorite phrases is that the only thing he knows when he wakes up in the morning, is something bad is going to happen. Never have those words meant as much as they did yesterday.
Within a span of a few hours, White and the UFC lost not one, but two massive money draws. To wake up with a breakfast of nixing the year’s No. 1 event, ruffling your most lucrative international market, and losing out on millions of revenue dollars is one thing. But to find out dessert is having your most marketable heavyweight star be done for the year because some Simpsons caricature of a doctor didn’t know the ingredients to his own drug cocktail, now that’s a doozy of a one-two punch to the gut. If Jon Jones had randomly retired, White may have spontaneously combusted.
So if there’s ever a day Dana has an excuse to call in sick, it’s today.
