The first UFC fighter Robert Whittaker should defend his title against champion Kelvin Gastelum on the upcoming UFC 234 pay-per-view (PPV) event on February 10, 2019 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
This will, of course, require the champions and challengers to promote their five rounds of affairs both in the country and abroad. But it seems that "The Reaper" is accused of behaving like a media dive and refusing to fulfill his primary responsibilities.
So, of course, Dana White's promotional president led her along during her recent Down Under, because White likes to talk to the mixed martial arts community when her fighters acted as an impossible egomania.
"Someone told Dana White that I was not doing PR or I was not easy to do and that's bullshit," he told Whittaker Radio Submission. "I did every PR and every media event they put in. The big thing is, however, when I say," I'm sorry, I can not do it, I'm currently practicing. "What do you want me to do? Do you want me to do it? Work a bit around me. That's just miscommunication and that's all. "
It is not uncommon for UFC champions to complain about their media commitments, because as you know more, you will have more coverage. It was one of the biggest problems "attacking" Ronde Rousey during the reign of the champion title, which eventually led to that.
"I do all kinds of media content," said Whittaker. "I have never said nor did I decline a media event unless it was strongly confronted with a session that I could not miss, so it's a part of the job, and I think this must be a healthy balance, I do not know anything about running UFC. UFC wants me to win in the fight, so if you want me to do PR, we work together, we're working around it, trying to fit in my time, please. "
Silly "Reaper", only the fighting Irish can leave you away with it.
