Dana White had a brief cameo as a homeless character in a short comedy skit for Fox NFL Sunday that caused some outrage from UFC fans over the stereotypes portrayed. Dana's response? 'Pussies in this country cry about everything!'

I didn't see it, but I'll agree with Dana's comment

Sure, it was just a joke, no big deal. How many homeless people were even watching? That would be how I would react if it this wasn't coming from the guy who fired Miguel Torres for quoting a joke from a TV show about a van!

You can't joke about vans that are called rape vans, but you can make light of homeless people and the problems they face. And then call people pussies for complaining? Another intelligent argument from Dana

Dana acting offensively and then berating mma fans?!?! Shocking!

MMA needs a new face if we want people to take this sport seriously.

I imagine we would have seen mma sanctioned in New York by now if Dana wasn't acting like such a scum bag.

I live in NYC and this is an everyday scene for me so not only do I think its funny, Danna is not far off, in fact minus the smile he is dead on. Some people are truly homeless and they do want help with food and such but 9 out of 10 times the homeless person is begging for money to by drugs and booze so stop getting mad at Danna for something we know is true and we don't give a crap about because we walk by these people everyday and do nothing.

There are real problems in the world, a picture of Dana White dressed like a bum is not one of them.

I'm sorry guys but seeing a millionaire mock homeless people is offensive for me. My mother last year was almost on the street. When she lost her house and car and everything she ever had. If I saw dana do that in real life
I would punch that guy right in the nose

I saw some homeless kids with a sign the other day it read:

Homeless
Ugly
Smelly
No one likes us
We could really use a beer.

I thought that was funny. Why wouldn't the Dana skit be funny? He wasn't even making fun of homeless. Riggle said he would take a tip from anyone.a homeless dana white gave him a tip. its funny.

Saw it live and thought it was funny. I didn't know it was Dana White right away but I thought the baldness looked familiar.


I actually agree with Dana for once.

I agree that the head of your organization should be more professional but Dana has nothing to do with MMA being unsanctioned in New York.

It has everything to do with the Fertitta brothers and their attempt to prevent their casino employees from unionizing.

The Culinary Workers Union has been fighting with the Fertitta Brothers (Station Casino's) for years and have been using their power in the state of New York to prevent the sport from being sanctioned.

Now that the Union won the battle in court hopefully their opposition will go away.

I understand both sides of the argument, and don't have the energy to personally attack Dana on twitter. I will say that there is something hackneyed and cliche when joking about homeless people abusing alcohol, but that's a creative complaint as a mediocre stand-up comedian. I do think that, with many homeless people being veterans or people with mental health problems, there's nothing funny about living on the streets and abusing alcohol. Watching a man deteriorate day after day due to substance abuse is a real knee slapper.

Yes, because punching Dana in the face, would solve the problem. Was it Dana's fault your Mom was ALMOST on the street?? I doubt it. I know you're into movies, since who frequent the movie thread, are you also willingly gonna punch any actor who has ever mocked a homeless person too?



Why is the attack on Dana? If there is a problem with it you should be taking it out on Fox, they're are the one's who produced the skit. Wasn't like Dana just posted a pic of him doing that.
