UFC president Dana White doesn’t understand all the issues surrounding his recent part in a sketch for Fox’s NFL Sunday pregame show. White played the role of a homeless man during Riggle’s Picks.
“It’s a skit for a comedian,” White posted on Twitter. “(Expletive) in this country cry about everything!!! Get a sense of humor. The (expletive) in this country who cry about everything everyone does makes me (expletive) ill.”
Involving White was an obvious way for Fox to help cross-promote this Saturday’s UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz event. Regardless of whether you agreed with the sketch or not, it appears to have done the trick in terms of sparking interest.
