Dana White issues response to Darren Rovell’s comments

As discussed yesterday here on TheMMAReport.com Darren Rovell’s comments about the UFC did not go unnoticed by the UFC brass.  Interestingly enough, UFC President Dana White himself had a very pointed response to Darren Rovell today which can be seen below:

As you can see, the UFC clearly went to work the past couple of days and echoed a great deal of the factual evidence that we discussed at length yesterday.

However, it should be noted that the UFC failed to offer up a couple of key pieces including “actual” PPV buys and UFC on Fox ratings from April. Obviously the UFC is a private company so we couldn’t really expect them to release PPV buys, but the UFC on Fox numbers were the best non-NFL season ratings for the UFC on Fox series so Dana White and the UFC could have easily pointed that to further dig into Rovell.
