Dana White reveals the threats
White urged his followers on Instagram to help him identify the man, who went by the username @loganmurphyfuctheufc.
“Do any of you know this scummy piece of f***ing shit @loganmurphyfuctheufc if you do please give me as much info as you have on him. He wants attention? He’s gonna get it.”
Within hours, White deleted the post and uploaded a new one stating “WE GOT HIM” and informing fans that the man had been identified. He has since deleted the second post as well.

Journalist Alex Behunin also shared a screenshot of Dana White sending words of dire warning to Bender after the information was revealed.
