Dana White on Meryl Streep: “Change the channel.”

Dana White on Meryl Streep: “Change the channel.”

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech after accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment is all the buzz right now. President-Elect Donald Trump took the brunt of it, but mixed martial arts also found its way into Streep’s crosshairs.

While the MMA community reacted pretty harshly to her comment, Bellator president Scott Coker was a bit more welcoming, even inviting her to an event. And now a third president is having his say.

TMZ Spors caught up with UFC president Dana White to get his thoughts on Meryl’s barbs. Before getting to that , there is one key piece of info we have to remind everyone of.

The UFC, the biggest mixed martial arts promotion in the world, is owned by WME-IMG, the biggest agency in the entertainment world. So essentially, Meryl took a shot at an industry whose majority ownership is basically her industry.

Now as for what Dana had to say. As we’re used to seeing, Dana is not afraid to speak his mind and he once again did not hold back. Among other things, Dana conveyed that she is just simply uneducated about the sport.

Check out the video below and see for yourself what Dana had to say:
