White has spoken publicly in support of Carmouche coming out, and when asked if a fighter had a problem with a match with a gay fighter, this was his response: “Most of the guys that are in this
sport are really good people. I honestly don’t see a situation where
that would happen, but if it did, I’d fix it.”
Regarding inclusiveness in the sport, here was White’s statement: “If you’re an athlete in the UFC
and you are gay, I could care less. You will not be treated any
p.s. Can I say how handsome Dana White is? Just had to put that out there. And thanks, Dana, for being one of the good guys.
