UFC president Dana White, held a media scrum shortly after the conclusion of The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale post-fight press conference, and was asked about the recent tragedy that took place in Newtown, Connecticut; which saw twenty-six people’s lives taken in a senseless shooting at an elementary school.
“Don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying anything about any other sports organization, but I think that a lot of them told everybody to be quiet and whatever.
Because you never know, it’s scary to have people talking about a tragedy like this, in typical fashion we are not afraid of anything, if my guys feel a certain way I don’t mind them talking about it, Joe Rogan started the show tonight talking about it.
This thing, I mean you look at…I was blown away by Columbine, I was blown away by the movie theatre in Colorado, this is at such a level of evil that you can’t even…I don’t have words for it.
The more I hear about it, the more sick I get..It’s just terrible, you know, I don’t even know what to say. I think everybody feels that way, pretty much everybody that I come in contact with is just so destroyed over this thing, it’s so bad…so bad”
Dana White discusses the topic at the 12:20 mark of the video.
