Dana White Reverses Stance On Punishing Drug Offenders

In an interview with ESPN The Magazine, Dana White has claimed the UFC will begin withholding bonus money from fighters, unless they can pass their post-fight drug-tests.

That's a one-hundred-eighty-degree turn from what he'd recently said in response to Sherdog's Josh Gross, when Gross wanted the UFC to begin taking more of hands-on approach to dealing with drug offenders.

According to White, not giving fighters their bonuses would be "a kick in the nuts," which speaks wonders for the UFC's pay scale (as if Hermes Franca hadn't already said enough about that).

The rest of White's shtick sounds so familiar to me, but I just can't place it. Read for yourself, and maybe you can figure it out.
