Dana White: “Soccer is for pussies!”

Dana White sat down with the Calgary Sun while in Canada and big-upped our national sport hockey while simultaneoulsy implying soccer was for pussies.

I’m not a big hockey fan. But I respect how talented you have to be to play hockey. Soccer? That’s a whole other ball. Can’t stand soccer. It’s the least-talented sport on Earth. There’s a reason three-year-olds can play soccer. When you’re playing a game when the net is that big and the score is 3-1 (and that’s a blowout) are you kidding me? You know how untalented you have to be to score three times when the net is that big? Now back to hockey. You have guys on skates with crooked sticks and you have to hit a puck into a net that’s the same size as the goalie. And at any time someone could take your head right off your shoulders and it’s perfectly legal. That’s a real sport that takes real talent, speed and all the things you need to be a real athlete. Now fighting is a part of hockey and has been since Day 1. It’s part of the game. It is what it is. I think we live in a world now where everything has been so pussy-fied. When I grew up we didn’t wear helmets when we rode our bikes. We didn’t have car seats. We didn’t have all this stuff. Now things are safer and we should be safer but let’s not go overboard. Fighting’s a part of hockey. Period.

What the hell is Dana White doing??? Doesn’t he know he’s going to be spending a lot of time down in Brazil, the land of Pussyball? Maybe he’ll Romney-bot it when he arrives and say hockey is just figure skating for thugs. Maybe after the UFC spends a bit more time in stadiums rather than arenas he’ll start to understand that it’s the size of the field that’s the deciding factor in scoring, not the net. And soccer isn’t full of pussies. Those badasses are always mixing it up.

More examples of the manliest sport in the world right here.

    I think Dana might be a little jealous of Soccer, which is fair enough, it’s only the most supported sport in the world.

    You’d think with all the amazing fights coming up he’d be focusing on positive things for his company, not insulting the largest sport following on earth whom he wants to come to his 80,000-seat show this summer.

    Maybe he’s having one of his stressed-out before summer vacay breakdowns and needs to buy 10 more Ferraris?

    Saying it’s a pussified sport is fine but untalented? That shit’s so retarded it condemns itself.

  • Reverend Clint

    id like to see dana try and kick a ball into a net of anysize runnig at full speed

  • Jarman

    Man, that kickintheface is epic!

    but some of those gifs, they’ve gotta be kidding….like, taking the piss outta the divers. Maybe the one where dude was screaming in his face, he was making fun of dude’s bad breath? and #9 get a big lol.

    Don’t forget the guy who got kicked in the face, almost tore off his eyelid.

    But soccer’s for primadonnas…’s rugby for those who can’t handle a little violence. but once you see those mofos undress a defender with 6 moves in 5 feet, well, it’s talented. just kinda soft.

  • Nachtfalter

    I grew up with soccer and I love it, but I have no issue admitting (and condemning) the embarrassing pussy diver aspects of it. There’s too much of that in soccer and that’s why soccer deserves to be made fun of.

    But claiming you don’t need talent is just epically idiotic. It’s just like all the uneducated morons who believe MMA is untalented dudes having a barroom brawl in a cage.

  • Letibleu

    ^^It’s just like all the uneducated morons who believe MMA is untalented dudes having a barroom brawl in a cage^^

    you just summed it up nicely. Now back to silly n cool football (ahem soccer) gifs.



    ehhhh, maybe dana is right…………..

    his facial expressions had more chances of dislocating his jaw than those slap/punches/dance moves.

  • scissors61

    Dana needs to learn to restrain his inner meathead sometimes. As for why soccer/football is the most popular sport on the planet and will be forever: it costs absolutely no money to play. You can play it with no shoes using a ball made of taped-up newspapers if you have to.

    Thank you for that leti….made my night.
    (my life is really empty)

  • Oontyex

    No one can go to that link, knowing the culture of taking dives in soccer, and say its not the softest sport there is.
    And also yeh, tons of soccer is a dude kicking it from far away into a pack closeish to the net and the group all jumping hoping for the best, not exactly delicate precision

  • Letibleu

    half the new countries they are trying to get into have soccer as their national sport.

    stand by for damage control comments friday from dana blanc.

  • Simco
  • Jarman

    That was entertaining! somebody wanna show Simco how to embed videos n gifs on here? and while theyre at it, show me too?

    That’s just a tough, determined motherfucker playin and lettin everything else settle itself… be admired for sure. But what do you expect from a sport that gives such a massive advantage to a minor infraction? people try and take advantage by diving. Conversely, it seems that since he plays that way, well i didn’t see many refs calling penalties (in that vid), even when he was gettin raped. so aside from some fanboy love and good compilations, what does it gain him? credibility in soccer? who cares.

    If every other player manned up, and wore his balls on his sleeve like that, the sport would get a bit more cred for not being pussies.

    ^ if you don’t have one of dees under your name you can’t embed. (as far as I know) I had to literally give hyan a handjob at applebees to get one.
  • Letibleu

    David Beckham doesnt wear his balls on his sleeve but he does wear a vagina on his arm


  • noiseless

    i fucken loathe soccer, but that messi dude. wow.

  • Jarman

    ah, confused laughter, I haven’t had you since i walked into the transvestite midget comedy show……
    Thanks Leti! what prestigious company to keep… and a bunch of vertically challenged he-shes….in my mind, you’re wearing the “I club baby seals shirt” and look more uncomfortable than in that pic with brandon vera and his wife

    oh, and thx phoenix…I used to have a star, but then i lost my job, got injured doing bullshit labour, and became a student. even if i had a star, I still wouldn’t know how to embed shit. but good to know why i can’t do it! (aside from ignorance)

  • Letibleu

    that pic with brendons wife was not a look of discomfort. It was about 3am, i was sloshed. I approached them and said i was a huge fan. He said thanks and offered to take a picture to which I asked him who he was and told him i was talking to his wife.


    The real discomfort was after the UFC 109 show when I was hanging out with Buffer, Goldberg, his wife and his brother. His brother asked where my accent was from and when i told him french Canadian he started talking slow and simple like i was from Japan. I told him he didnt have to talk to me like a retard and that i understood English just fine. I didnt know he had a disabled kid. Goldberg told me and then only buffer would talk to me.

  • Reverend Clint

    oh jeez people and their tard babies need to lighten up… clearly god hates them and is just having a bit of a laugh

  • iamphoenix

    There may be no more soccer kicks allowed in MMA anymore but this is soccer, so I don’t see why this is such a big deal. In soccer you kick. This kid got arrested for a soccer kick to dah face.!

  • Letibleu

    its a dive
