When I hear about “Dana White’s scrums” I don’t think about a group of sweaty dudes holding their iPhones out and waiting for him to say something quote-worthy, I think of something else. The word “scrum” just sounds like something disgusting. Maybe I’m just not cultured enough because I know very little about rugby, but if someone invited me to get into “Dana’s scrum” I’d politely decline as it sounds kind of gross.
Anyway, I regress. A topic that has been coming up is that Ken Shamrock and his coalition of former UFC fighters have been talking about “crashing” the UFC’s 20th anniversary event in November, which has led to Dana getting a lot of questions about Shamrock and the other fighters and has made him quite upset. Dana’s latest “scrum” resulted in this tirade against Shamrock.
“I don’t even want to mention this guy’s f–king name,” White said at a post-press conference scrum. “But it’s just like, Ken Shamrock burst back on the scene. ‘Hey everybody, I’m here to save everybody,’ or whatever. No, you’re trying to become relevant again is what you’re trying to do. Let’s not forget that Ken Shamrock tried to sue us, that he said that his contract — Ken Shamrock owes me $175,000. And I’m coming for it, Ken. I’m coming for the f–king money, you piece of s–t.
“You should have f–king stayed wherever you were, hidden under the f–king porch somewhere. The guy owes me $175,000 because him and his f–king scumbag lawyer put together some phony lawsuit that he lost. And he owes me $175,000 in attorney’s fees. And he’s out there talking about what he doesn’t have and what guys aren’t getting and all this s–t. He’s trying to make himself relevant again and if anybody can’t see that, you’re just f–king stupid.”
