Dana White endorses Bryce Mitchell’s right to raise the Bible inside octagon
Dana White has recently discussed his views on Bryce Mitchell’s decision to bring his Bible into the octagon during both his fighter introduction and his post-fight interview following his victory over Dan Ige at UFC Vegas 79. White’s comments were made during each of these moments.
The CEO of the UFC gave off the impression that he was unconcerned by the situation and highlighted that the promotion allows athletes to express themselves. White emphasized that fighters have the opportunity to communicate their opinions, including religious or political messages, without fear of suffering fines from the UFC in a recent discussion with the media:
“There was no response, and you are familiar with how I am in this setting. Whatever it is that you’re interested in, man. There are no muzzles in this location…We’ve heard it all and seen it all, or at least we think we have. Whoever you are and whatever you believe and think, we’ve seen it all and heard it all. But, as you probably already know, this is one of those places where you may express what you’re feeling and say what you want, and neither of those things will bother me in the least.
