MMA's main man - An interview with Dana White

The UFC president offers some thoughts on the state of his sport

The sport of mixed martial arts had some rough beginnings. Its perception as a niche sport, its constantly shifting rules, its punching-bag status among politicians who didn't truly understand it all of these were obstacles that MMA needed to overcome.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has been at the forefront with regards to bringing the sport into the mainstream. From humble beginnings, the UFC has been transformed into a sporting empire rife with sold-out arenas, superstar fighters and huge broadcast deals.

Cinco de drinko

If there's one thing that I've learned about the rich and famous over the years, it's that far too many of them have no grasp of the concept of drinking responsibly. Often, it's very much the opposite. A number of celebrities have appeared in this space due to their ridiculous deeds and actions while under the influence.

Still, this last one has been a big one for drunken hijinks. Let's go to the rundown, shall we?

The big one is of course Randy Travis. The country star was popped for his second DWI in six months after he crashed his car. What makes this arrest particularly spectacular is the fact that Travis was allegedly completely naked at the time he was apprehended. In addition, there's apparently security footage from a nearby convenience store that has Travis stopping to buy cigarettesalso while naked. Travis was also charged with retaliation and obstruction according to police, Travis verbally threatened an officer during his arrest.
