    Remember when UFC President Dana White went on the “UFC Unfiltered” podcast and said he didn’t know anything about Leslie Smith’s labor complaint against the UFC because, as he put it, “I’m at a point in my life where I don’t focus on that (expletive) anymore. … I get to do all the fun (expletive).”

    Yeah, well, apparently that fun stuff includes taking time out to yell at former fighters on Instagram.

    Here’s how it started: Retired heavyweight Brendan Schaub made some comments on his podcast about the high expectations for kickboxers who transition to MMA.

    “I think everybody is all high and mighty on these guys who come from kickboxing, boxing backgrounds,” Schaub said on his “Below the Belt” podcast earlier this week. “When they come over to the UFC, they expect them to be elite strikers. The distance, the combos, the head movement, the number of variables, it’s a completely different game. So to me that never translates.”

    UFC middleweight Israel Adesanya heard these comments and seems to have assumed that Schaub was talking about him.

    That conclusion makes some degree of sense, seeing as how Adesanya (14-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) was a high-level kickboxer before coming to MMA. Then again, he also just won and looked great doing it at this past Friday’s TUF 27 Finale, where he beat Brad Tavares (17-5 MMA, 12-5 UFC), so now would be a strange time to criticize his transition. It would make much more sense to level that criticism at Gokhan Saki (1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who got knocked out by Khalil Rountree (6-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) in just his third MMA fight at UFC 226.

    Regardless, Adesanya posted a video of Schaub’s comments to his Instagram, along with a series of dismissive comments to suggest that he did not agree with this assessment.

    And who should show up in the comments of Adesanya’s post? None other than the president of the world’s biggest MMA promotion.

    “Such a (expletive) tool!!!!” White wrote. “What the (expletive) does this idiot know about the sport or the business??? @stylebender for u to be listening to one word from this MORON is a waste of ur time. Guy went 6-5 in the UFC!!! The only thing he could teach u is how to get KO’d. Tune idiots like this OUT.”

    Just to clarify, that’s the 48-year-old grown adult UFC president leaving comments on Instagram, telling other people what would be a waste of their time.

    Schaub, unsurprisingly, wasn’t about to let that comment slide. So he jumped in there with one of his own, while also clarifying just who that comment about kickboxers was really directed towards.

    “@danawhite whoooooooa look who got a break from folding Ronda’s laundry to jump on instagram,” Schaub wrote. “Bravo sir. He’s right @stylebender what do I know listen to the bald fat guy who has never been in a fight in his life. Do that.”

    “You’re a monster,” Schaub then wrote to Adesanya. “I was referring to guy with Lil mma Experience (Saki) was my main point coming straight to UFC or major mma leagues. You have a ton of experience in mma before getting to the UFC.”

    And lest anyone try to tell White that Schaub is maybe not the worthless failure he’s made him out to be, especially in his post-fighting life, solely because he lost a few fights? Don’t worry, the UFC President has an answer for that, too.

    So what do we have here? Just a bunch of grown men insulting each other on Instagram, trying to chip away at one another’s accomplishments for the sake of their own personal pride.

    Because why should actual, literal kids get to have all the fun of acting the fool and trying to hurt each other’s feelings on social media? Multi-millionaire sports executives apparently enjoy it just as much.

    I’m willing to bet Schaub has some dirt on danus that danus knows about and that’s what the last warning remark was about.

    He implied they've slept with the same girl, which is especially troubling for Dana considering that he's married.

    Thats kinda wack to bring up though on Bredans part. These young kids have no
    "Bro Code" honor these days. Soon as they don't like each other they start snitching
    about dirt they did together.

    Punk shit

    Dana blasted Schaub out of nowhere. Schaub didn't start shit. And Schaub had obviously been holding on to that for a while, it's not like he made it public as soon as Rhonda told him or as soon as they broke up. Dana just had to start shit.

    Don't start no shit won't be no shit.

    Your hood pedigree is clear by your use of "wit" and omission of an apostrophe in "can't"

    I think I stated the situation eloquently

    There are also plenty of people that come from the gutter that later
    make a change and educate themselves.

    Exactly. They are questioning your skills, but I bet they don’t even know the way of the blade.
