Dana White mocks Cyborg walking in heels during media scrum

New, 155 comments

White's media scrum included a lot of talking, but may have been most notable for Dana white pantomiming Cyborg walking in heels.

White has been unrelenting in his trashing Cris Cyborg of late. A scrum focused on UFC 172 included a lengthy screed on why Cyborg is almost un-promotable (but they might promote her anyway). The highlight of his UFC 172 outburst was a mimicking little dance where Dana stomped around, pretending to be Cyborg in fancy heels (transcription via Luke Thomas/MMA Fighting)

"I said, when I saw [Justino] at the MMA Awards, she looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels. And she did, did she not? Who wants to dispute that she didn't look like Wanderlei?

"She was walking up the stairs, jacked up on steroids beyond belief and looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels."

It's tough to say this is a low point in Dana's rhetorical attack on dialogue (although I did find him telling the media to "grow up" right before he clomped around especially ironic), but it definitely became the single most interesting thing from a media scrum meant to build up this weekends pay-per-view event.
