Dana White: ‘I’d Love To Sh [expletive] it All Over Bellator, But…

UFC President Dana White hasn’t been shy to show his disdain for Bellator MMA in the past.

On Jan. 21, at Bellator 170, Tito Ortiz submitted Chael Sonnen with a rear-naked choke in the first round of their main event fight. After the fight, many fans claimed that the fight looked to be fixed.

This may have been a perfect opportunity for White to attack Bellator, but White admits there is no way that fight was fixed.

“There’s no way in hell that was a work,” White said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast. “I’d love to come on here and s**t all over Bellator, but there’s no way that was a work. The thing you’ve got to remember, he’s a good wrestler, never was Chael some big jiu-jitsu guy. And when Tito Ortiz is cranking your f**king head off, you’re 40 f**king years old…maybe I should tap out here.”

Ortiz retired from MMA following his 19th win in the sport. He is a former UFC light heavyweight champion and a member of the UFC Hall of Fame.

This fight was Sonnen’s Bellator debut. He had not competed in MMA since he last fought in the UFC over three years ago.
