    Dana White responds to fans saying UFC 177 should be free: 'Go to the movies tonight, I don't care'

    Dana White is none too happy with MMA fans who are criticizing the UFC product.

    Today, his anger is aimed at fans who said that UFC 177 should have been moved to "free" status and put on Fox Sports 1 following Renan Barao being forced out of his main event title rematch against T.J. Dillashaw. The main event now features Dillashaw defending against promotional newcomer Joe Soto.

    When asked about that line of thinking by "Showdown Joe" for Sportsnet, White replied
    "Tell them to go to the movies tonight. I don't care." He would expand on this by suggesting that the problem is that people are never happy, "It's funny these guys saying 'make it a free show', how do you want these guys to get paid? The champ is still fighting. That's the craziest thing I ever heard. These people were bitching when Barao was still fighting. Some people are just never happy. I don't care."

    As a die hard fight fan I would rather go to the movies tonight.

    Dana needs to be fired and their structure needs to change.

    Wonder what the butyrate looked like after dfw essentially talked down to fans and journalists for calling him on his bullshit.

    That is true.

    However, as I said, the matchups did not represent what I would consider the UFC's best effort as far as compelling fans.

    Great matchups are absolutely crucial but you can get those on regional cards for free.


    I wonder if the opinions from dfw and you were equally supportive of bellator 106 or 120 which were actually better cards IMO.

    A title fight can be a PPV but Soto didn't earn a title fight, but understand it was to late to change that to free. Also understand not wanting to cancel it too, but he should let someone else speak for the UFC would be better off for them
