UFC President Dana White is very honest and maybe he’s sometimes too honest. In a recent interview, he admitted that he was never a fan of Josh Koscheck and talks about how he never got along with him in the first place.
White confirms firing Paul Daley from the UFC after sucker-punching Koscheck immediately after the third and final round at UFC 113. He compares a similar situation where Nick Diaz attacked Joe Riggs at the hospital after they had already fought at UFC 57. Although he likes how both Daley and Diaz, White believes in good sportsmanship at all times no matter what the situation may be.
From Dana White:
“I’m no Josh Koscheck fan. Personally, I think he’s [expletive]. We actually don’t get along very well. I like Paul Daley a lot, but what he did was inexcusable. He walked over to Koscheck and Koscheck could have thought he was coming over to shake hands or congratulate him and he took a cheap shot at him like that. If you throw a sucker punch like that after a fight in the UFC, I don’t care who you are, you’re done. He’ll never fight for us again. I cut Nick Diaz after he was fighting [Joe Riggs] at the hospital. People are sick and dying and you can’t be in the hospital fighting. I cut the guy even though I know he’s a very good fighter.”
