Betcha UFC prez Dana White can't take a joke

So, did you hear the one CagePotato.com posted about UFC prez Dana White gambling? The site wrote, "Not only am I paying Bones to wear UFC logos on his walkout gear next weekend, I also placed a $500,000 bet that he'd beat Rashad. Oh s---. I guess I shouldn't have said that out loud." under a pic of White on their website after the UFC signed a clothing sponsorship deal with the light-heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones.

The MMA king wasn't happy, issuing a press release and a request for a retraction:

"The claim that Mr. White would financially wager on the outcome of a UFC event is outrageous in the extreme. Indeed, in the verified complaint we are presently preparing for Mr. White's signature upon his return from Abu Dhabi, Mr. White expressly states under oath that at no time in the history of his association with the UFC has he ever financially wagered on the outcome of a UFC event."

Got that? "The claim that Mr. White would financially wager on the outcome of a UFC event is outrageous in the extreme." Sounds a bit like Hustler Magazine v. Falwell.
