“Still looking for Ngannou”, “Grooming Anik” – Fans share interesting takes as Dana White fails to appear at UFC 274 press conference



Dana White was one big name missing from the recent UFC 274 press conference 

UFC 274 is one of the biggest cards for the promotion and there was a huge surprise awaiting the media present as Dana White did not make an appearance.

The UFC president is always present at such events, and it came as a bit of a shock that he wasn’t present to conduct some of the interviews and even stand during the face-offs. 

Jon Anik did speak to the crown and confirmed that White could be coming later in the week. 

However, there are just a few days left to the event, and Anik did not mention a particular day or date when the UFC head would come.

Fans share their thoughts on Dana White not featuring at press conference 

Social media is rife with fans having a voice and sharing their opinions on every matter. The same took place after Anik’s comments about White featuring later in the week.

Some believed that the UFC was setting up Anik to replace White in the future:

Others, however, had hilarious takes about White either trying to stay away from a fighter or brought up how the UFC boss didn’t put the Heavyweight title around Francis Ngannou’s waist. 


It will be interesting to see when White does arrive for UFC 274.
