“In my opinion, everything was in Dana White’s hands,’ says Emelianenko. “Because at that moment, I just felt like ‘this guy, he just hates us.’ Like, personally to [me]. There were insults coming from Dana White all the time. There were many very loud things said, but for real nothing happened. It was [all talk].”
The Russian mixed martial arts fighter (MMA) Fedor Emelianenko said he did not want to have anything to do with the well-known promoter by UFC (Absolute Fighting Championship), in particular, with their president Dan White.
White often unflattering comments about the “last emperor” in the media, stressing that the UFC has lost interest in the Russian fighter.
“I would not want to work with people who behave outrageously. In public, he makes some statements out – others. I often went to the people UFC, bypassing my manager Vadim Finkelstein. I refused because I do not want to work without Vadim. I think White should change attitude towards people, maybe then people will be pulled for him, “- said Emelianenko.
