Earlier this month, UFC President Dana White was none too happy to hear [autotag]War Machine[/autotag], aka Jonathan Koppenhaver, labeled as an “ex-UFC fighter.”

He hated the association with an alleged abuser, particularly given War Machine’s most recent fighting action came for Bellator MMA.

Now, he’s rubbing shoulders with the fighter — on a very unflattering list.

This month’s copy of GQ Magazine features “The 25 Biggest Sleazebags in Sports,” and White sits at No. 8, sandwiched between War Machine and disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.

“Turns out underpaying your UFC employees, bullying rivals, and generally impersonating Don King as a bald white guy doesn’t do wonders for your charisma!,” reads White’s entry on the magazine’s list.

It’s not a good look for the UFC president, who apologized this week for breaching internal company protocol by ousting a judge mid-event. On the list’s “Sleaze Key,” he got a “Greedy Sleaze” from…

These are my thoughts on a recent show I went to in Fort Worth. I’d like to give my thoughts on the pre-show ambiance but due to my mistiming and the wrong address appearing in my phone, that didn’t happen. I came in right as promoter David Fuller was introducing former champ SB1. The two of them put over their past. Then SB1 put over Fuller’s passion.

Fuller announced they were scheduled to have a match between Peyton Gates and Miss Diss Lexia. However Ms. Gates suffered an injury to keep her out of the match.
