Dana White categorically and unequivocally denies he’s been “frozen out” by Conor McGregor

No issues with Conor

Dana White is not happy about the “bullsh*t” being spread about his relationship with Conor McGregor.

Bleacher Report scribe Jeremy Botter made a very memorable appearance on Off The Ball last week in which he dropped a supposed bombshell that things had turned frosty between the UFC president and arguably the promotion’s biggest star.

“I believe that things between Conor and Lorenzo Fertitta are okay but, from what I understand, Dana White has been frozen out of the process entirely and I don’t know why.”

“There was going to come a point where… they’ve created this and now they can’t put it back in the cage.”

Uncle Dana must have got wind of the comments judging by a recent of tweet in which he firmly denied there was any rift between himself and the Notorious.

White has famously butted heads with MMA Hour host Ariel Helwani in the past, which caused one Twitter user to suspect that he was the “weirdo journalist” being called out. However, both Helwani and White confirmed that this wasn’t the case with some pretty humorous replies.

However, the prize for funniest response has to go to SBG head coach John Kavanagh.

Great stuff…
