It looks like Christmas may have come early this year. UFC president Dana White is now “rethinking” his stance on arranging a trilogy between former heavyweight champs Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir after fans blasted his Twitter account with countless reasons as to why Part III wasn’t such a good idea.
“People have been saying on my Twitter that they’re not happy with that fight,” White told MMAjunkie.com. “It’s something I need to rethink.”
Last Friday, White suggested a rubber between the behemoths “made sense” and we’ll “probably see Lesnar fight Mir next” – much to the displeasure of potential pay-per-view purchasers across the globe.
It didn’t take fanboys long to catch wind of the less than thrilling news, as they immediate used the power of the Internet – specifically that social network operated by the big blue bird – to change White’s tune.
White has never been one to heed the advice of Internet geeks, but he does have a warm place in his heart for Twitter. The brash promoter is as active a celebrity tweeter as you can find. If fans want to have their voices heard, White suggests for them to give him a follow and he might holla back.
“I usually don’t gauge things by the Internet; the Internet is [expletive] stupid,” White said. “My Twitter I do.
“On my Twitter, there are 1.2 million people that care about this thing and everything else, and you don’t get the goofy [expletive] that you get on the Internet.”
