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.

Earlier this month, UFC President Dana White was none too happy to hear War Machine, aka Jonathan Koppenhaver, labeled as an “ex-UFC fighter.” He hated the association with an alleged abuser, particularly given War Machine’s most recent fighting action came for Bellator MMA. Now, he’s rubbing shoulders with the fighter — on a very unflattering list. This month’s copy of GQ Magazine features the top 10 “Sleaziest in Sports,” and White sits at No. 8 ...
