The UFC is immensely popular and has a network TV deal with FOX, but Dana White continues to remind us with his petty behavior why the organization has a long way to go before becoming mainstream.
White went all Al Davis on Tuesday and had his organization issue a press release stating their demand that MMA website CagePotato.com publish a retraction for a wisecrack they published over the weekend.
The post that caught the UFC’s eye was one pointing out that light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be officially sponsored by the UFC for his upcoming fight with Rashad Evans. That fact seems to indicate that the organization is more invested in Jones than Evans. Cage Potato turned that into a wisecrack as a caption for a photo on the post in question. Here’s a screenshot (via Bloody Elbow) of the caption that angered White:

With Jon Jones and Rashad Evans hoarding all of the UFC 145 headlines, it’s easy to forget skyrocketing welterweight Rory MacDonald (Pictured) will be ending his eight-month hiatus in the card’s co-featured attraction.
MacDonald owns a practically perfect 12-1 résumé, with his lone professional blemish coming at the hands of now-current interim champion Carlos Condit. The...
Alistair Overeem flunking his random pre-fight drug test only reinforced the sentiment held by many pundits that surprise exams should become the norm. Unfortunately for those hoping to rid mixed martial arts of performance-enhancing drugs, or at least taper its abuse, athletic commissions simply don’t have the funds to chase fighters down year-round.

At the UFC Sweden post-fight presser on Saturday, UFC President Dana White wasn’t prepared to discuss Alistair Overeem’s upcoming date with the NSAC due to his high testosterone reading from the surprise drug test taken at the UFC 146 press conference, but was more than happy to put to bed talk of Australian-based fighter Mark Hunt taking the championship contention spot against...
There is absolutely no way in hell Cagepotato gets press credentials for the upcoming UFC shows this year, maybe ever due to this.
