UFC fans upset over Dana White’s Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland altercation at UFC 287 hotel question shutdown

Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland exchanged heated words during a UFC 287 press conference, following an altercation at a hotel earlier this week. The two welterweights are set to fight different opponents on Saturday night in Miami, but tensions rose when they bumped into each other backstage at the fight-week media day.

When asked about the incident, Masvidal dismissed it as irrelevant, prompting UFC president Dana White to redirect the discussion towards their upcoming fights. White refused to answer questions about the UFC’s recent link-up with WWE. He was irritated by the reporters’ seemingly antagonistic line of questioning.

Masvidal took a shot at Holland, calling him a “d***-riding, clout-chasing b****.” In response, Holland called Masvidal “baby girl” and told him to “watch your f***ing mouth.”
