Josh Barnett On Dana White: He's A Hindrance To Fighting
It's no secret that Dana White and Josh Barnett will likely never meet eye to eye on things and with the announcement of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, Barnett was a guest on the MMA Hour and talked about Dana White's role in the grand scheme of MMA:
"Anything to be a detriment and it's not even just with me, it's got to do with anyone that isn't UFC, (Dana White) wants to cut it down. He wants to ruin it."
..."His end of it is entertainment. (But when) The actual root aspect of fighting is concerned, he's is a hindrance. He's unnecessary. You don't need any of that if you talk about fighting."
..."This whole clip (of Dana White’s interview) is trying to make the UFC look better and me look bad. He is very emotional and responds off the cuff. He wanted to deteriorate Strikeforce’s image in the public eye. I think Dana White often is far over the line of being unprofessional, it's too much."
