Matt Mitrione Had ‘No Point’ To Interview Regarding Fallon Fox, Says Dana White

UFC president Dana White had some stern words for Matt Mitrione during a conference call Tuesday.

Many wondered if the UFC boss would even be asked about the incident involving Mitrione and transgender fighter Fallon Fox – and if he was, would he answer.

Well, White did, as only he can.

First of all, he didn’t need to be doing an interview. I am going to talk to these guys. The only time these guys need to be doing interviews is leading up to fights.

What was the point of the interview? It just caused a bunch of problems for us and a bunch of problems for him. What was the point of the interview? What was the upside? None.

Mitrione had some choice words for Fox, who has fended off the critics since she became noteworthy due to her change from a man to a woman.

For now, Mitrione is suspended and awaiting word on his next foe.
