UFC President Dana White recently lambasted Brendan Schaub over the comments he made about UFC 279. The UFC star recently took to Instagram to defend himself.
Brendan Schaub fires back at Dana White
Schaub labeled the 53-year-old a “bully” and a “low budget Vince McMahon.”
It was announced that Diaz (20-13) would face former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson (25-7) in the main event of UFC 279 inside T-Mobile Arena. He was initially scheduled to face rising Chechen-Swedish contender Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 279 in Las Vegas, but Chimaev missed weight on Friday. It was noted that the fight was a non-title welterweight bout.
Both the fighters had a one-pound allowance, which means that the highest they could weigh at the official weigh-in was 171 pounds. Diaz, for his part, successfully made weight, coming in at 171 pounds. However, Khamzat Chimaev missed weight at the official weigh-in. ‘Borz’ weighed in at 178.5 pounds, which is a whopping 7.5 pounds above the limit for non-title welterweight bouts.
No punishment was given to the Swede for coming in 7.5lbs overweight. The former UFC heavyweight shared his suspicion towards the company following the bizarre occurrence which altered the 279 fight card.
After hearing Schaub’s comments, Dana White insisted that the theory surrounding the event was “f***ing stupid.” The 15-fight mixed martial arts veteran didn’t hold back in his response to the UFC president, saying:
“Oh god… here we go again. I’ve been nothing but cool and thought you’d learn from the last time you mentioned my name and got destroyed. Unfortunately, not surprised you’re a bully. Always have been… Calling me and numerous people ‘dummy’ ‘dumbass’ ‘f*cking idiot’ cause we have questions about ‘the chaos’ at UFC279?…”
“You’re not special, you’re not original. You’re a low budget Vince McMahon. Every move you make is a copy cat of that dude. Only thing you have in common is you’re both on steroids and dress like a**holes.”
