UFC President Dana White has issued his first public comments since UFC and FOX cut ties with Chael Sonnen earlier this week. In an exclusive interview with UFC.com, White said:
“It’s very hard for me because I care about him a lot as a friend. I like Chael Sonnen, so it’s a tough one, man. He had four banned substances in his body, so what are you going to do?”
“The hardest part about it is that Chael Sonnen is a very intelligent guy and look what it’s done. It’s just terrible,” White continued. “If it happened to a guy that was not as bright, you’re like, it’s unfortunate but the guy isn’t very bright.’ You have to be a real stupid f****** idiot to mess around with drugs right now in this sport.”
Other topics discussed include UFC 175, Chris Weidman becoming a star, Urijah Faber, Cub Swanson and more . You can read the full feature at UFC.com.
