Dana White: Greg Jackson sucks, part 2

Today is Fightlinker’s birthday. We’ve been around for 6 years, which I like to think is an impressive amount of time to be talking trash for. But the original and longest running trash talker in the biz is Dana White. Half the things that come out of his mouth could be posted on Fightlinker without commentary and fit in just fine. Take this new rant about Greg Jackson for example:

“The thing that drives me crazy about Greg Jackson is Greg Jackson has this whole little thing where he’s the nicest guy in the world, the nicest guy you’ve ever met. Real quiet and humble. He’s a (expletive) hardcore businessman,” White said. “That’s what that guy is. He plays the whole thing with Jon and Rashad (Evans) and (expletive) Jardine and all these guys ‘We’re all family, we’re all brothers. We’re a big family here and that’s what we are. We won’t fight each other because we’re family.’

“(Expletive) You’re not family. You train together. Yes they like each other. There’s a lot of nice guys in MMA. Keith Jardine is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Rashad is cool too. This sport is full of nice guys. (But Greg) plays this card with these guys…”

Before White could catch his breath, his rant on Jackson continued.

“The only reason we even know who Greg Jackson is cause of (expletive) Diego Sanchez,” White said. “Diego Sanchez came out of his camp because of GSP. GSP wanted to come train at Jackson’s camp and Diego was like (expletive) that (expletive). ‘This is my house, man. I’m going to have to fight this guy one day.’ What did Greg Jackson do? (Expletive) GSP down there isn’t he. You know why because he believed GSP would (expletive) beat Diego Sanchez. He made a business decision. I will take him over him. What happened to (expletive) family?

“Who could be more family to you than (expletive) Diego Sanchez, the kid’s been with you since he was (expletive) 14 years old. What happened to family, Greg, you (expletive) family-guy you.”

“Then you got Rashad Evans, Rashad Evans was with him the second-longest other than Diego Sanchez. ‘That’s his brother, we’re brothers. He’s my family. He’s this, that and everything else.’ Jon Jones wanted to come train there and comes in and everything is cool. Who the (expletive) did Greg Jackson pick? He picked the guy who he thought would beat Rashad Evans, no matter how (expletive) long Rashad Evans had been with him. He made a (expletive) business decision. He’s a businessman, he’s a (expletive), he’s a (expletive) con artist.”

At this point in his vitriolic speech, White tries to backup a tiny bit before closing his argument with one final blast against Jackson.

“Let me be fair. It’s good to have a trainer whom you respect. To keep you in (expletive) line, that you don’t run the (expletive) show,” White continued. “To keep you in order, and you respect him enough to run a camp. And have his (expletive) together to keep your life organized and focused and ready for a (expletive) fight and can breakdown (the fight) and do all this other stuff.

“But Greg Jackson is a (expletive) businessman who cons all these guys into this family (expletive). Because it would be the perfect (expletive) world if I can have Diego, GSP, Rashad, Jon Jones and a list of other (expletive) characters who don’t have to fight each other because they’re all the best in the world. And if they don’t ever have to (expletive) fight each other, he makes money from all of these guys. Big money, because these are all big-money fighters. He’s full of (expletive) is what he is.”

Jeez Dana. Tell us what you really think.

    “…which I like to think is an impressive amount of time to be talking trash for.”

    It is.

    Congrats bud!

    You’ve outlasted quite a few!

  • Reverend Clint

    Jackson does come off as a “talk shit then stab you behind your back” type guy and dana lays it out quite well. He seems to flip fighters until he gets a better one, sanchez for GSP and Rashad for jones. Hes a scumbag

  • Symbul

    I’ll take Greg Jackson’s word over Dana White’s, personally.

  • ChildKillerM16

    Dana white used to be good people.

    If only we were all 13 years old again…

  • Blackula Jonez

    Seems like Greg is as much of a cold hearted pragmatist as Dana.

    You would think he would be happy that a guy training high level fighters is willing to sacrifice one for another so we fans get to see the best fights.

  • randlemansvertical

    Jackson is a diabolical little gnome hellbent on destroying mma however he can.

  • voice of reason

    Everthing dana said abt Greg IS true tho. hes sneaky and pretends to do the ‘nice calm guru’ thing but like i said, NO ONE is like that all the time, it has to be fake. just as fake as his fighters are. hes all abt business.

  • voice of reason

    cant believe tons of people like symbul still believe gregs ‘holier than thou’ bs

  • Letibleu

    So what? Like the UFC, the greater good of the company first, fighters second.

  • voice of reason

    ^Yes,… EXCEPT the ufc dont pretend to be humble or do the holy man fake nice guy shit but greg does. thats the difference.

    wats worst than an arrogant cunt is one that pretends to be overly nice.

  • G Funk

    There goes Dana blaming one guy for everything AGAIN. Diego left cause o dat Messican pride, “this is my corner holmes” chit. And Rashad was pissed cause the UFC offered JJ a title fight against Shogun and JJ accepted. I I do recall fighters in the same camps fighting eachother and not throwing hissyfits and leaving. Extreme Couture comes immediately to mind.And furthering what black said, i can recall in recent times Dana spouting his hell fire about guys in the same camps not fighting eachother and that was going to kill the sport, blah blah blah. Yeah, Greg is a LYING SCUMBAG WEASEL FUCK! YEAH!

    Dana herds sheep, and lots of sheep there are.

  • kvelertak

    Gotta agree with Dana here.

    Jackson is a snake in the grass

  • internet tufguy

    yea screw gj. he is the offspring of satan and hitler. he is hiding weapons of mass destruction, i am sure of it. pure evil. have you heard that he fell in love with breaking bad and made jardine start cooking meth? me neither.

  • voice of reason

    Gfunk ur WAY off

    Diego left cos GSP is in same weight class when he was a contender. Greg poached gsp. Same reason rich franklin wudnt train with tuf4 guys …cos they might have to fight. i dont think rich has mexican pride.

    ‘Rashad was pissed cause the UFC offered JJ a title fight against Shogun and JJ accepted.’
    WRONG rashad was pissed jj wanted to fight him AFTER becoming champ. rashad told jj to take the shogun fight.

    “Dana herds sheep, and lots of sheep there are.”
    Yes but this isnt abt sheeps or “blaming 1 guy”, its abt facts and not following the “hate dana/zuffa” trend, which is itself sheepish.

  • Nachtfalter

    Man, that Greg Jackson guy is evil. He tries doing his job and making money. Pure evil. And he does while coming across like a nice guy. What an ass. And smart, too. How dare he? Why can’t he be a bit more like Dana?

    Honestly, people talking about the garbage that makes it’s way out of DW’s mouth are just wasting their time. It’s complete and utter bullshit. The UFC will be much better off when that scumbag finally has a heart attack and goes away.
