For all the shit Dana White throws towards the internet in general and Sherdog in particular, you think he’d save some specific evil-eye action for The Fight Network. It must piss him off that he has to play nice with them even when they continue to be at the center of lots of controversy and their lead reporter Loretta Hunt often has all digits plus private parts buried in drama.
The Fight Network was the one to announce the news of Randy’s retirement and the word is Loretta got first dibs on that because she’s helping the Natural out with a book and Couture works in an advisory position for the network. Now it looks like the Fight Network will also be part of Big John McCarthy retiring as a referee … they’ve just put out a media advisory for a press conference this Friday featuring the veteran official.
I’m not about to blame the Fight Network for being responsible for these announcements … after all, you don’t shoot the messenger do you? Unless you’re in Sparta, that is. Then you throw that motherfucker down a deep black hole never to be seen again. You just know that Dana White has dreams where he gets to do that to Loretta. She’d be like “Big John is retiring” and he’d be like “THIS IS ZUFFA, BITCH! YEEEEARGH!” And down into the hole she’d go.
