UFC boss Dana White victim in sex tape extortion lawsuit
In a bizarre turn of events for the MMA community, Dana White has been named in an extortion case involving a sex tape.
The world of MMA never seems to be completely free of odd stories. While the community reels from the lack of events there is still drama to fill the headlines.
UFC president Dana White has now been named in a lawsuit, in which he was victimised in a 200,000 sex tape extortion. The Las Vegas Review Journal reported the case Saturday afternoon. The case involved one Ernesto Joshua Ramos, 42, who served a 366 day sentence for the extortion case. Ramos has now filed a lawsuit against White via the Clark County District Court, claiming that the UFC boss broke a deal to pay money for withholding his name. Ramos also claims that false derogatory information was provided by White’s lawyers in order to get the FBI to investigate him.
White commented on the lawsuit in a statement.

“I just found out that a bullshit lawsuit was filed against me yesterday. This guy went to federal prison for trying to extort me over five years ago. Now he’s hired a lawyer who is also a convicted felon, and he’s trying to extort me again for $10 million. He got no money from me last time and he won’t be getting any money from me this time. I look forward to the court dismissing this quickly so I can get rid of these scumbags forever.”
Based on the statement White doesn’t seem too fazed by the potential lawsuit, and Ramos certainly lacks credibility.
At the moment, White has his hands full. He’s been hard at work trying to get UFC 249 to materialise despite the difficulties in hosting a hosting sporting events with the ongoing pandemic. Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was forced to withdraw from the his scheduled title bout with Tony Ferguson at the event, complicating matters even more.
Regardless, it would probably be wise not to get on White’s bad side.
