Recently, UFC president Dana White has been “attacked” by a number of top-ranking representatives of her promotion, including such fighters as John Jones (26-1, 1 NC) and Jorge Masvidal (35-13). The reason for the quarrel was the financial appetite of athletes who wanted to earn more.
A few hours ago, the Irish promotion superstar Conor McGregor (22-4) once again announced his retirement from the sport, which, coupled with recent events, provoked a violent reaction in White.
“Conor, John Jones and Jorge Masvidal want to leave. In a way, I can understand that. You must not fight. In the UFC, those who want this fight. The number of people who are currently unhappy with me is simply insane. I can say the following: whoever doesn’t want to go with me, get off the bus, ”the journalist Shamathar Sandhu quoted White as saying on Twitter.
Recall that earlier, Jones and Masvidal entered into an open confrontation with White, declaring their desire to leave the promotion if their services are not paid more generously. Dana has already stated that he is ready to go to resolve the conflict with Jones.
