UFC President Dana White noted that it “feels great to be right” about opposing masks and lockdowns after being villified by the left-wing corporate media for over a year, until last week when the Center for Disease Control admitted that there is no reason to wear face masks in public.
The UFC was the first major sport to continue to host live events throughout 2020’s Covid panic, and generated significant outrage among Joe Biden supporters and media outlets for doing so. During a UFC 262 post-fight press conference, White was asked, “During fight week, the CDC came out with their new rules that you don’t have to wear a mask if you’re vaccinated, did you notice any difference this week compared to the week in Florida?”
“Um no, I don’t think so you know in Florida I saw people wearing masks and not wearing masks,” the UFC president responded. “I saw some people with masks and people not wearing a mask here, which you guys know how I feel about that, it’s the way it should be. If you don’t want to wear a mask, you should be able to walk around and go do what you want to do without big-mouth people shooting their mouth off. And if you want to wear a mask, wear a mask and people shouldn’t be shooting their mouth off at you either.”
White added, “Hopefully we can get to a normal place where people who are comfortable with masks can wear them and people who aren’t don’t have to wear them.”
When asked if he felt vindicated as a public figure who had spoken out against compulsory mask-wearing and social distancing, White responded, “I knew when I was doing it, it was the right thing to do and now I know it was the right thing to do so I’ve never questioned it from the beginning. So, I guess you’re asking me does it feel great to be right? Yeah, it feels great to be right.”
