UFC President Dana White calmly rebuked an angry journalist who started shouting, “Are you a doctor!” when White called out politicalbias regarding the use of monocolonal antibodies and ivermectin.
Asked about the attacks on podcast host and occasional UFC commentator Joe Rogan, White said, “It’s disgusting. It’s one of the craziest things that I’ve ever witnessed in my life. And we’re not talking about experimental drugs or things. This stuff’s been around. Ivermectin, the guy won a Nobel Peace Prize.”
“They’re making it so you can’t get them,” White continued. “Medicine that absolutely work, they’re keeping from us.I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this sh*t, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now all of a sudden you can’t dig them up to save your life; the doctors won’t give them to you.”
“And even when I did it… here in Vegas… I had it right before Christmas, I made one phone call and was able to get it done,” White noted. “And that’s not some f**king rich famous guy s**t. Like anybody could’ve called. Everybody could’ve got it back then. You can’t get those things to save your life now, literally.”
At this point, a man identified as Yahoo! reporter Kevin Iole began shouting “Are you a doctor! Are you a doctor!” in an agitated manner.
“There you go. Here he comes,” White replied calmly “No, but I took them, and they both worked for me, so why shouldn’t I be able to take them again? Or other people?”
“I refuse to answer that question,” replied Iole.
White replied “No, come on. Dive in. You want to know what’s scary? I bet I can get some f*cking pain pills quicker than I can get monoclonal antibodies. Not maybe; that’s a fact. They f*cking hand out pain pills like they’re Tic Tacs.”
