UFC President Dana White has once again found himself in the middle of controversy, this time involving college football and a familiar rival. White was in attendance at a college football game on Saturday when a player suffered a serious injury on the field.
Instead of immediately reaching out to help the injured player, White decided to record the incident on his phone and post it on social media. The video quickly went viral, drawing criticism from fans and fellow sports executives.
But White didn’t stop there. In the caption of the video, he took a shot at Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza, a longtime rival of White’s. “This is what happens when you let Showtime run college football,” White wrote, clearly trying to troll Espinoza and take a jab at his television network.
In response, Espinoza called out White for his lack of empathy and professionalism. “It’s disappointing to see someone in a position of power and influence behave so callously,” Espinoza said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with the injured player and his family, and we hope for a speedy recovery.”
White’s controversial actions have once again caused an uproar in the sports world, with many calling for him to apologize for his insensitive behavior. It remains to be seen whether White will face any consequences for his actions, but one thing is for sure – the rivalry between White and Espinoza is far from over.
