UFC president Dana White really doesn’t like Darren Rovell.

Rovell has stated in the past and maintained that Amanda Nunes, who won at UFC 239 last night, isn’t as big of a star or as marketable as some other women. Well, the man running the fighting organization has just about had enough. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

White said the following in part about Rovell following Nunes’ huge victory:

This guy likes f**king attention, okay? This guy likes attention, and I’m going to give him more attention. You know, he says the worst thing that could have ever happened tonight was Amanda Nunes won. Not a star for the UFC. So, this is the kind of stupid sh*t that we hear.

Well, I think it’s safe to say White and Rovell won’t be grabbing a few beers anytime soon. White really seems to hate his guts. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

This also isn’t the first time the head of the UFC has gone after the sports pundit and numbers expert. He also shredded him back in December over his thoughts on Nunes.

I honestly don’t know if Rovell is correct about Nunes or not, but I do know that she’s a gigantic star. She’s the giant killer and routinely takes out the top women in the sport.

How anybody could think that’s not marketable is beyond me, but I’m not the money expert here.

Either way, I think it’s very safe to say Dana White absolutely despises Rovell, and this is a feud I can absolutely get behind.
