It would appear that MMA critics and the media in general have an apology to issue the foul mouth president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Dana White. Reports out of Cedars-Siani Medical Center have it that Dana White has officially been diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome.

For those not familiar with Tourette’s Syndrome: It is an inherited neuropsychiatry disorder with onset in childhood, characterized by the presence of multiple physical (motor) tics and at least one vocal (phonic) tic; these tics characteristically wax and wane.

It is not uncommon that Tourette’s takes the form of outbursts of profane language. Please, click this link for a better understanding of this debilitating syndrome.

White, who gained the majority of his fame in the public’s eye through his appearances on the hit Spike reality series The Ultimate Fighter which pits UFC hopefuls against each other in pursuit of a six-figure UFC contract seemed to present himself as a crass, outspoken, douche who can’t complete a sentence without cursing.

Defenders of White’s claim that such language was necessary for motivational purposes. Since then, White has made a name for himself in interviews by hating just about everyone and not being afraid to call even a woman a ****ing piece of **** that couldn’t **** a **** if her ******** life depended on it.

Now, with the release of this newest information, White’s critics have been silenced with only the occasional tic to break the silence.

White has made a statement: “I don’t ****ing know what the **** you are talking about. And I don’t know how you got into my ****ing house, but if you don’t get your **** ****ing ***** ****ing ass out of my bathtub I’m going to put my **** in your ****ing ***!”

He followed this statement with a cute little tic, snapped his fingers and whispered “poopy balls.” Then grabbed a baseball bat, effectively ending the interview.

Only time will tell if the diagnosis of White having Tourette’s Syndrome with help to lighten his public persona or if it will actually diminish him in the eyes of the MMA world, like a rapper that has never been arrested.

The future of the UFC is unclear.
