Many fighters have said nasty things about UFC president Dana White over the years, but to my knowledge, none of them have ever threatened his life.
Well, until now.
According to TMZ, former fighter Dan Quinn obtained Dana White’s private number and left death threats on his voicemail. TMZ released the audio this morning of Quinn threatening to put a bullet in White’s head, and Quinn’s friend Paddy O’Neill, who sounds a lot like Quinn with a bad Irish accent, threatening to blow up UFC headquarters.
So what’s all this craziness about?
Well, that’s a damn good question. Basically, Quinn claims that one of “Dana White’s cohorts” attempted to “block” his Stevia movement by offering him money and threatening his life. Why? I have no f-ing clue. Quite honestly, the whole thing hurts my brain so I’m just hand it over to Cage Potato to sum up the general absurdity.
If you haven’t followed Dan Quinn‘s insanity over the years, you’ve been missing out. The man may very well be MMA’s most tortured mind, and that’s seriously saying something. Things started off simply enough with him issuing YouTube challenges to the UFC’s best, bragging about his hands and his accomplishments in college football. Then he, along with Diego Sanchez, discovered the healing power of Stevia, nature’s answer to Sweet’N Low
For years he’s been preaching the Stevia gospel, claiming it ‘melted a tumor’ out of Octagon girl Ali Sonoma, but recently things have taken a turn for the (more) bizarre. He’s posted conversations with a mysterious caller who loosely claims affiliation with both the UFC and some sort of global power/secret society, offering him hush money and power in exchange for his silence. Another recent YouTube video of a conversation with police regarding threats of violence toward a veterinarian has since been deleted.
All it takes is a quick view of one of Quinn’s many YouTube videos or the video embedded below to see he isn’t exactly the most stable person on the planet. I’m not sure if that means we should or shouldn’t take his threats seriously, however Dana has wisely decided to err on the side of caution and turned the voicemails over to the Las Vegas Police Department to investigate the situation.
