Former UFC referee and current Bellator broadcaster John McCarthy criticized Dana White for hitting out at media.
Dana White’s recent act of depicting himself as the man who went against all odds to bring back sports is getting mixed reactions. While some are in complete awe of what White did, there are others who are criticizing the UFC president for blowing his own trumpet.
Since the video showcases White giving a piece of his mind to the mainstream media, so much of the disapproval of the clip came from the media entities. However, now a former employee of his has come out and has given his opinion on the video.

John McCarthy Slams Dana White For Blowing One’s Own Trumpet
John McCarthy, who has officiated for UFC and who now works as a broadcaster for UFC’s rival MMA brand Bellator, has given his take on White’s apparent conspicuousness via Josh Thompson’s WEIGHING IN podcast.
“Here’s a guy that says, ‘I don’t give a fuk about the media. First off, I don’t even look at us as media, but that’s ok. ‘I don’t give a fck about the media,’ but then he always complains about clickbait. ‘These media guys and that clickbait bullshit they do.’ What the fck did you and your little team do, man? You are little clickbait bich. I just cracked up. I go, ‘You are so pathetic,‘” said McCarthy.
Big John also added, “You need to have your own little pat on the back, ‘OK, let me pat you on the back,’ because you took everything out of context and made it to where were you were the hero.
“Congratulations, Hero Dana. Oh, let me bow down to you. Unbelievable. My god. When are you going to figure out? You know what? Just don’t worry about it. Do your thing you did. You did great. The UFC had a fantastic year,” added McCarthy.
“Let’s be honest about everything that occurred, and let’s be honest about your video because your video is clickbait, and it’s bullsh*t, and it’s out of context. It’s ridiculous,” he concluded on the topic.
With the conduct of 41 events in-total in 2020, UFC has garnered unprecedented success. Therefore, he may get criticized by various factions but, if there is one thing on which unanimity can be achieved, then it would be, Dana White’s gamble paid off.
