I do have a passion for the sport and I would like to have a positive influence in the direction of the sport because the bottom line is, you’re taking care of an athlete. I really don’t see that happening with a Dana White at the helm of the UFC. I think they’ve done a lot of good things for the sport, but at the same token, they have a cocky, conceded arrogance that is coming about them and I don’t care for it.
Dana White – and I’m going to prove that today – Dana White only says things that is going to benefit him and hurt others. And they’re not even factual – it’s just things that he makes up and that he says. The last interview that Dana White did was an interview to basically hurt me and put me down and hurt my credibility, and were completely, completely lies.
I’m tired of being taken advantage of, played as the nice guy and basically swimming against the current with the management of the UFC. I have a lot of other things going on in my life that I’m doing just fine with. I don’t need the problems. I don’t feel like I get the respect I deserve from the organization, and that’s motivation No. 2 for the letter of resignation that was sent today.”
I couldn’t find any interviews with Royce but he does make a veiled accusation that the UFC was behind his failed steroid test. But I don’t want to be unfair so for now we’ll just say 3 out of 4, even though I’d bet a few thousand dollars on the fact that Royce also thinks Dana White is a douche.
