Dana White Says Jose Aldo’s Manager Makes Him Look Like a Pussy

Dana White Says Jose Aldo’s Manager Makes Him Look Like a Pussy

One enticing development coming from the UFC 164 press conference was the fact that Anthony Pettis doesn’t want to beat around the bush in setting up this superfight shiz. Pettis offered to fight Jose Aldo for either one of their belts at 155 or 145 lbs, either of which would be simply delightful (despite chronic malcontents like MMAMania, who are always content to pee on our tree with all of their TJ Grant humdrum).

Jose Aldo’s coach Andre Pedeirneras previously accused Pettis of faking an injury to get out of fighting Aldo, but he also offered to apologize if Pettis beats Henderson, vacates his belt, drops to 145 to fight Jose Aldo, jumps through flaming hoops, and sucks his penis. In response, in classic Dana White fashion, he has begun a House of Lords-style diplomatic negotiation by pulling the “pussy card.” The pussy card in and of itself is nothing new, being the workhorse of Dana White’s arsenal—the two pair of his matchmaking game, if you will. However, this time, in a creative twist, the pussy card has been pulled not on Aldo but on his manager:

Here’s the thing, you can tell 100 percent Anthony Pettis is willing to go wherever it takes. I know that Jose’s coach is saying, ‘Bro, he can come down here at 145.’ Because they think [Pettis would] be at a disadvantage whereas I actually think he’d be at a huge advantage at 145. He’s big, strong.

For his manager to come out, and this is what drives me crazy about managers, and I love him. He’s a good guy. I’ve known Andre [Pederneiras] for years. But when you come out and make a statement like that, you make it look like your guy is afraid of him, you know what I mean? You make it look like Aldo was afraid. And that might not be Aldo’s same opinion, it might be his manager saying, ‘This is what I want to happen here,’ but it makes it look like he’s afraid of Anthony Pettis, which already gives Anthony Pettis an advantage.

Based on this, it’s safe to conclude that the full muscle of the UFC’s pussy-calling ability is now being thrown behind making this fight, and I couldn’t be happier about the impending announcement of the matchup.
