The UFC has brought in an exciting proposition, an outstanding offer to raise money for Coronavirus charities as well as get fans more interested and hyped for UFC events this year. The UFC President Dana White revealed that he is planning to organize a contest and well let’s just say the prizes on the line are extremely interesting.
The contest will be a raffle and the prizes will include a “UFC VIP Experience”, including having dinner with Halle Berry and also participating in the official UFC matchmaking process. YES! Dana White will allow the winner to actually make a fight! Here’s what he told BJ Penn.com:
(The winner) will sit in in a matchmaking meeting, and I’m actually going to let them make a fight. There’s a process to the matchmaking. What happens is there are four of us: Sean Shelby, Mick Maynard, Hunter Campbell, and me. So it’s not this (thing where) I walk in and go ‘We’re doing this, that, and the other thing.’ It’s a process. We argue. We fight. ‘This ain’t gonna happen. We can’t do this. We can’t do that.’ It’s a long drawn out process that goes on. They’ll be part of the bickering and the arguing and we’ll see where he comes out in the end and what he gets.
Mark Hunt is still angry at the UFC and Dana White
Mark Hunt was an MMA and UFC veteran loved and adored by the fans. Though, he left the UFC on sour terms, which even include a long legal battle. He is still angry with White and has now recently trashed his ‘Fight Island’ idea, “Look why they’re there. They let juiced-up cheaters fight against guys who don’t cheat, and they don’t give a sh*t if they die or not. Look how they treat the fighters. You think the UFC actually cares about the fighters or the people who watch? Look what they did with Jon Jones. They moved his show in one week from Las Vegas to California. They took all the fans that paid to go there to go f*ck themselves on Christmas. And all the fighters who fought on the card lost 10 percent of their purse? You think the UFC cares about people? They don’t give a shit. People need to actually see what they’re really doing. The time right now is quite strange for everybody, but I’m actually quite happy I can speak freely about everything, instead of trying to hold my tongue about it. I just tried to do my job, and I’m tired of getting screwed by the company. People say, ‘Well, maybe you should have won more fights.’ Well, maybe they shouldn’t have allowed these cheaters to get away with it all the time and gotten no punishment. The punishment they’re getting for cheating is nothing. I don’t even think that d*ckhead Lesnar has paid his fine yet.”
