Dana White’s Gift To Youtube Star From Nelk Boys Sparks Outrage

Dana White’s Gift To Youtube Star From Nelk Boys Sparks Outrage

UFC boss Dana White is no stranger to controversy.

As the face of the biggest promotion in all of mixed martial arts (MMA), he often finds himself on the wrong end of criticism.

And it was more of the same this week.

In a now-viral video, White can be seen giving a particularly interesting birthday gift to Youtube star “Kyle Forgeard” from the Nelk Boys.

The clip largely speaks for itself:

As do the reactions:

Between his leaked DMs, polarizing plans for the UFC and general way of doing things – White has become something of a mainstay in the headlines.

In that respect, this most recent brouhaha is just par for the course.

But it does seem like these pay concerns in regards to his fighters are not going away any time soon. There’s a reason Paige VanZant is out there posing for these sorts of photos to make a buck.

And generally speaking, it’s a little tougher to ignore issues when you’re owned by a publicly traded company than when you are a private enterprise doing whatever you want.

Will White ultimately come out and address this most recent controversy?

Time will tell.
