    The Wrestling Observer has the news on the UFC's decision to cut back on Dana White appearances following his tirade against Loretta Hunt that caused an uproar in the gay community when White used the word "faggot":

    The fallout of Dana White's video blog yesterday has been huge and it appears will result in a scaling back of White as a public figure representing UFC.

    White's apology to GLAAD largely regarding using a homophobic slur is already up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=360SEiiO7Uo

    In addition, as things stand at this point, White's public profile is going to be greatly reduced

    *White will be doing no more video blogs

    *White has pulled out of doing a reality show based on his life that was scheduled to start filming

    *He is going to cut back greatly on dealing with the media and greatly reduce his public role in the company

    They just showed why being called a faggot is considered a derogatory term.

    Don't blame GLAAD. They didn't chose to take Dana out of the public eye.

    I have a feeling this has a lot more to do with something else as I can't imagine GLAAD effecting the UFC's business.

    If it was the NRA, that would be another thing.

    The UFC using this issue as a scapegoat to change Danas role perhaps?

    I didn't watch too many of the Dana blogs but I did catch a few of them, I always found them to be interesting because it showed all of the stuff that happened in the background like seeing Kid Yamamoto meet with Dana White, its a bummer there won't be anymore.
