Darren Rovell vs. Dana White Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving
Since Darren Rovell broke the story that UFC was up for sale, Dana White has tried to constantly discredit him. He completely denied Rovell's original report, calling it "bullshit" and totally untrue. Within days, the UFC was sold to WME-IMG and Rovell was proven correct. Since Rovell is Rovell, he boasted about being right for a while and went back to being relatively unlikable.
Today, after news of Brock Lesnar's second failed drug test, combined with Jon Jones recent failed drug test, Rovell questioned the sale price.
Not sure there's been an acquisition that has soured as quickly as the UFC. Have to wonder what protections WME-IMG has before deal closes.

Yes this was a standard Rovell poking the bear. Thankfully for us Dana White took the bait. Fresh off speaking at the Republican National Convention, Dana responded to Rovell's tweet, continuing to push his disgust for the ESPN reporter.
@darrenrovell he doesn't hate UFC he's just a total douche who needs to talk about just about anything to stay employed.

Remember with the sale of the company, Dana stands in line to make millions. He also is supposed to stay on as the president of the organization. Rovell, talking about "lowering the asking price", directly affects White's bottom line so you can somewhat understand White's aggression.
However this feud features two people that are always on the wrong side of media feuds. We just want it to keep going.
