Responding to critics who have accused the UFC of being an anti-gay organization, Dana White said on Thursday that if there were a gay fighter in the UFC he would prefer that he come forward and share that with everyone. The Culinary Union and other groups have sent letters to Fox and started petitions urging Fox to back out of their recently-signed agreement with the UFC. The union, along with another group that started a UFC website called “Unfit for Children,” are urging sponsors not to back the UFC. Those organizations believe White and the UFC have a “history of tolerating homophobic conduct,” which White insists is not the case.
“I’ll tell you right now, if there was a gay fighter in UFC, I wish he would come out,” White said. “I could care less if there’s a gay fighter in the UFC. There probably is and there’s probably more than one.”
Several instances led the organizations to believe the UFC supports anti-gay behavior. White had a rant years ago where he freely cussed out a writer. The UFC’s color commentator has called a female writer a cunt. You also had one of the organization’s fighters who said he did not want to face a gay man in the octagon. White tried to defend himself against the claims.
