It’s never good to go off on your boss especially when that person is UFC head Dana F’n White. With a probable move of the actual weigh-ins from the morning before back to the night before looming there have been some public outcries. Many fighters have gone on record in interviews and social media posts rallying against the change including Al Iaquinta. Here’s his shot at White for the potential move on The MMA Hour..
His sense of reality is gone. It’s gone. It’s shot. It’s absolutely shot. It’s scary. Now he’s putting our health at risk. He’s going to move the weigh-ins? So why did you move the weigh-ins in the first place? Because, in his mind, he wants more exciting fights. How are you going to get more exciting fights? Give the fighters more time to recover, right? Which is also beneficial to us because it’s healthy. It’s healthy for us to replenish.
Even though it’s healthier for the fighters, we’re going to move it back to the nighttime, because he interviewed a million fighters? I haven’t seen one that want it at night. So his sense of reality, you can’t — it’s almost like, you do an interview with him now, it’s not about the truth, it’s about his agenda. So, I’m weighing-in in the morning.
Whoa there Al. Remember he’s like The Candyman. If you say his name too many times he will show up at your doorstep.
