Aug 29 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: prommanow

When UFC President Dana White got to work on Thursday, his PR team informed him he'd made GQ's list of the "Top 25 Sleaziest People in Sports". White came in at no. 8, right between War Machine and Lance Armstrong. Ouch. Their reasoning is thus: "Turns out underpaying your UFC employees, bullying rivals, and generally impersonating Don King as a bald white guy doesn't do wonders for you charisma!" GQ on D ...

This month’s copy of GQ Magazine features the top 10 “Sleaziest in Sports,” and White sits at No. 8, sandwiched between War Machine and disg ...
