Dana White Makes GQ's "Biggest Sleazebags In Sports" List
Dana comes in at #8 on the list, and earns the label of "greedy sleeze". At least someone out there is willing to call him out. The guy is driving around in Ferraris, playing $50,000 hands of blackjack and flying on private jets, while many of his fighters are getting paid $5000 to risk their lives.

Morning Report: UFC president Dana White and War Machine featured in GQ's 'Biggest Sleazebags in Sports'

'Fight week, blog week' hasn't been great for UFC president Dana White. After being found to be in breach of the promotion's regulatory protocol for removing judge Howard Hughes from officiating at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Le, White is featured in the September issue of Gentlemen's Quarterly as being among 'The 25 Biggest Sleazebags in Sports.' Not only did White make the cut, he placed in the top ten. Coming in at No. 8, here's how GQ characterized White:

Turns out underpaying your UFC employees, bullying rivals, and generally impersonating Don King as a bald white guy doesn't do wonders for you charisma!

GQ also annotated White's entry with a dollar bill symbol, marking him as a 'Greedy sleaze' on their 'Sleaze Key.'

White was joined on the list by Ultimate Fighter and Bellator veteran Jon 'War Machine' Koppenhaver. Landing at No. 7 on GQ's list, Koppenhaver earned four sleaze symbols for 'D**khead, Pervy, Says-horrible-sh*t and Violent' sleaze. NFL lineman Richie Incognito happened to earn the same four marks. Here's how GQ described the fighter:

He's been thrown in jail multiple times for multiple bar fights in multiple states. He once joked on Twitter about raping his girlfriend. He got kicked out of the UFC, then got kicked out of the porn business after going on a rampage at an industry pool party. He now runs a clothing shop called Alpha Male S**t, where you can buy T-shirts with DONT BE A PU**Y written backward on them.

See the list's top 10 below:

10. Bobby Petrino
9. Lance Armstrong
8. Dana White
7. War Machine
6. Tiki Barber
5. Chad Curtis
4. Isiah Thomas
3. Sepp Blatter
2. Aaron Hernandez
1. Donald Sterling

An energy trader on Wall Street, Cholish isn't exactly starving for work and he knows a thing or two about numbers; so he doesn't see how fighters who decide to go into MMA full time live of the income they receive from UFC.

Quote: "I can say from how I've been treated indirectly and just my understanding of what I think the UFC takes in on an annual basis, they could compensate the lower-level fighters and without going into detail the upper-level fighters a little bit better. I think if you're a fighter on the lower level, you should at least be getting enough income - win or lose in your fight - so that in a three-month period of time or two-month period of time, whatever the fight camp may be, you can go into that fight fully focused on the fight, performing your best as opposed to worrying about, ‘Man, you know, financially how can I prepare? Cut corners? Because someone who fights full time, I just don't see how they can live off the income at this level."

He points out that in his previous fight in Brazil, he actually lost money:

Quote: "But just for a basic example. So Danny Castillo I know trains out of California. He had to travel to New Jersey. I live in New York. I had to travel to Brazil. You're fighting in a sport, mixed martial arts, with a wide range of skills and tactics and a lot of people will have multiple coaches. You're allowed three corners for each fight, but you're only in your contract, and for me personally, I only get one coach's flight and one hotel room and cover one visa. I know just from this last fight, I had to pay over $3,000 in flights. I had to pay for an additional hotel room. I had to pay for two additional visas which are $500 a piece. I have to pay for the licensing fees. I have to pay for the medicals. Before you even step to the ring, your original purse is gone. And that's before factoring in the gyms I go to train at, my coaches that take hours of time to sacrifice. I want to pay them and take care of them. If a fighter doesn't do well, how does he reciprocate his coaches who put their hours and time and their training partners? It just seems like certain things could be handled better and the fighter could be treated better for an organization that claims to be the best in the world in mixed martial arts."

Earning $8,000 for his fight against Gleison, Cholish claims when the final numbers are tallied up and he pays his managers and coaches, he will be in the hole around $5000 to $10,000.

Putting forth another example, Cholish revealed that after his UFC 140 bout against Mitch Clarke, he "barely broke even," and that was after he received a discretionary bonus of $5,000 to go along with his $6000 to show and $6,000 to win purse.

White and Sterling should swap positions.

Dude didn't want to see his mistress hanging out with a bunch of thugs right under his nose, big fucking deal. Very tame compared to Mel Gibson's "pack of n*ggers" comment.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

According to GQ saying the n word is worse than KILLING SOMEONE... (#2 = Aaron Hernandez) and beating a woman near to death (WM @ #7).

Killing someone only effects one person, racial slurs effect an entire race.

Dana should probably top the list.

UFC itself exudes his character.

UFC is the greasy spoon of fightsport.
