Paul Daley Displeased With How Dana White Handled His UFC Dismissal

Dana White’s character, I would have expected nothing less than getting kicked out of the UFC. He could have done it a little more gracefully and told me personally… To this day I’ve still never heard nothing from Dana. With all the talk Dana gives and the attitude of being a big man that he is, he could have at least came to my face and said ‘Paul, I don’t respect what you did, I think you’re an (expletive) or a jerk or whatever, you’re not going to fight here again.’ … But still to this day, I’ve had no phone call, no e-mail, no nothing, so that just goes to show the treatment I received having fought (Martin) Kampmann at late notice, and fought co-main event on my second fight in the UFC, and done a bunch of media work for them in the U.K. There’s some things I don’t agree with, but I’m happy to move on… The UFC is the UFC. It’s like a secret society type club, there’s a lot of favoritism going on and all kinds of (expletive).

—Paul Daley, via MMA Weekly, voicing his displeasure with Dana White not personally informing him of his permanent ban from the UFC

As we saw just last week with Karo Parisyan, just because Dana White says you’re permanently banned from the UFC doesn’t mean you’re permanently banned from the UFC. I understand the frustration Paul Daley feels with the whole situation, but if he ever hopes to earn his way back into the UFC, publicly questioning the man’s character who makes that decision isn’t the way to go about it.
