Dana White has been called a lot of things in his tenure as UFC president. I’m not sure if he was ever called a sleazebag. But, he has been now.
In the September issue of GQ, the magazine has named the 10 biggest sleazebags in sports and the White was ranked number eight. That was one spot behind disgraced former Bellator and UFC fighter War Machine, who was ranked seventh. Here is how the magazine described the UFC president.

The article also a system called the sleaze key to depicate how sleazy each personality was.

It has been a rough week for White as the UFC admitted earlier this week that he was in breach of the UFC’s own regulatory protocol for removing judge Howard Hughes from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 48 in Macau, China because he didn’t agree with Hughes’ card for the first two fights of the card.
Here is the GQ list for the biggest sleazebags in sports:
10. Bobby Petrino
9. Lance Armstrong
8. Dana White
7. War Machine
6. Tiki Barber
5. Chad Curtis
4. Isiah Thomas
3. Sepp Blatter
2. Aaron Hernandez
1. Donald Sterling
