UFC president Dana White appeared on the This Past Weekend podcast with comedian Theo Von, and during the conversation, one of Von’s sponsors came under fire.
Von revealed that a sponsor had pulled out of an ad deal because the comedian was interviewing Robert Kennedy Jr. for an episode.
The UFC boss was taken aback by the reveal and went on to sound off on Peloton for pulling the deal.
White did not hold back.
“Peloton, what do they sell stationary bikes? Peloton, sells stationary bikes and they have a problem with Robert f*ckin’ Kennedy? F*ck you Peloton,” White said. “Who the f*ck are they? Are you f*cking kidding me?
“Do we have Pelotons in the gym? We’re getting rid of them. We’re getting rid of the Pelotons. Pelotons are out of the gym.”
White and Von proceeded to roast Peloton and the company’s CEO Barry McCarthy.

Earlier in the interview, White had revealed that a UFC sponsor had asked him to remove a video from his personal social media accounts that showed support for Donald Trump.
White had a similar reaction to being told what he could and could not post on his own.
“I posted a video for Trump on my personal social media and one of our big sponsors called us and told us to take that down,” White told Von. “You know what I said? Go f*ck yourself, you vote for whoever you want to vote for and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for.
“That’s how this all works, I don’t even care who you vote for, that’s none of my f*cking business, but f*ck you. Don’t ever call me and tell me who to vote for.”
Considering Dana White’s stance on COVID and the way he continued hosting shows while the rest of the sports world was shut down, I wouldn’t expect him to respond to being told what not to do any other way.
