UFC president Dana White commented on former UFC light heavyweight champion, former Strikeforce announcer, Frank Shamrock this past weekend following the UFC 156 Press Conference. The UFC boss did not hold back when asked about whether the promotion uses “revisionist history” to ignore the fighter’s UFC contributions, even labeling Shamrock a “dick” for how he acts.
“Frank Shamrock’s a dick, he literally never shuts up and he’s always got something stupid to say.” White continued, “Frank Shamrock came out with a statement the other day that he wants to fight me. Give me a F***ing break. The guy is a clown, I just have no respect for Frank Shamrock.”
White and Shamrock have had a contentious relationship dating back to when Zuffa LLC. first took over the UFC operations. Shamrock has long been an out-spoken critic of the brazen UFC president, often working with promotions in direct competition with the Vegas-based company.
That relationship is unlikely to get any better now that Shamrock has joined Bellator MMA and Spike TV’s “Fight Master: Bellator MMA” as one of four coaches.
