We don’t gag anyone here. We let everyone speak their mind. I don’t know what he said was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist he said. I do not know. Come on. I will not play these games with you. Come on. If he is racist? Yes. Of course (we don’t want that) ».
“One of the things we’ve never done here at the UFC is stop people from expressing what they feel about certain things inside or outside the Octagon. Even if it’s me, if it’s about me. Who has more than freedom of expression than us? We literally let our people do or say whatever they do. I would have to say today that the darkest was Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, “dictated the president days ago.
