Dana White’s Controversial Swipe at USADA’s CEO

UFC President Likens Travis Tygart to Britney Spears Post-Split

Dana White Takes a Swipe at USADA’s CEO after UFC Split

UFC President Dana White has once again made headlines, this time with a contentious comment regarding USADA’s CEO, Travis Tygart. Following the UFC’s break from USADA, White likened Tygart’s reaction to Britney Spears’s infamous breakdown.

White’s comments have stirred the MMA community, particularly given the sensitivity surrounding Spears’s past challenges. His exact words, as quoted from the sources were,

“He lost his mind. He went full Britney Spears.”

This is a direct reference to Spears’s public struggles in the past, and using it as a point of comparison has drawn sharp reactions.

While the specific reasons for the UFC’s split from USADA have not been elaborately detailed, the tension between White and Tygart is evident. The two have been at odds recently, with disagreements intensifying in the wake of the separation.

The UFC’s decision to part ways with USADA and White’s subsequent comments indicate turbulent times for the MMA organization in terms of its anti-doping policies. As the community awaits further clarification on the matter, Dana White’s Britney Spears comparison remains a focal point of discussion.
