Dana White talks calling wrestling fake

On this week's Chad Dukes Wrestling Show ( Wednesdays at 7pm on CBS Radio's 106.7 The Fan DC, Podcast available on iTunes & Play.it) we discussed the comments by UFC President Dana White on Dukes' afternoon drive program, Chad Dukes Versus the World responding to his infamous “fake” comment regarding pro wrestling.

White offered the following clarification to his comments.

“Listen, try to do anything today without pissing people off. Try it. I mean anything you say people get mad, you just gotta not care and I don’t care. Anything you say on Twitter or Instagram or anywhere these days every week I have a different group mad at me so you know it’s always something, but it’s still the world we live in today. My Twitter and social media has beene xactly the same since the day I got on it and one of the things, you said it best, the more successful you become, the bigger something gets, the harder it is to be yourself and to really speak honestly because somebody ends up getting mad. You literally just have to get to the point where you just don’t care who gets mad and that’s how I am.”

“I’ve had my, you know, my battles with Vince [McMahon] behind the scenes with some stuff that we’ve worked on but I respect all the guys in the WWE in the wrestling profession. We have so many guys that are that are fans of the UFC and when they come to the events we take very good careof ’em, we treat ’em with respect, I have yet to meet a bad guy from the wrestling world. Everybody is really classy and everybody’s really cool. My wrestling thing was just a response to an idiot on social media that was talking smack so I kind of gave him a zinger back and the whole wrestling world went crazy on me. But it is what it is, to be honest with you I really don’t care.”
