Dana White takes aim at business reporter Darren Rovell
Dana White took aim at sports business reporter Darren Rovell during his post-UFC 232 press conference on Saturday night.
One of the major results from the fight card headlined by Jon Jones was Amanda Nunes beating Cyborg to win the UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship. Nunes has now won eight straight fights, is the bantamweight and featherweight champion, and has beaten the likes of Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, in addition to Cyborg.
Despite all that, Rovell sent a ruin-the-moment kind of tweet about how Nunes killed the UFC’s most valuable women because she’s not marketable.
Between Rousey and Cyborg, Amanda Nunes has singlehandedly killed the most valuable women in the sport.
Brutally damaging to UFC.
Nunes isn't in the same marketing ballpark as either of those two.

White hated that line of thinking and blasted Rovell in his press conference after the card. Beware that if you watch, White drops multiple curse words:

This sort of thing is common for Rovell, who receives backlash for sharing uninformed authoritative takes.
