Dana White Explains Why He's Allowing Erik Perez's Luchador Mask at UFC 155
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.28.2012



Dana White recently spoke about allowing Erik Perez to done a luchador mask this weekend at UFC 155 after refusing it at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale and UFC 150. Check out the highlights:

On learning about the masks' history: "Those masks, Mexican wrestlers used to wear them, but it's a warrior thing, and they explained it to me. I can live with that. If it makes sense to me and you're just not acting like an idiot trying to come up with a different spiel every time you walk, and that's your thing I'm cool with that."

On initially believing it was just a gimmick: "You guys know how I feel about guys acting like idiots walking out to the octagon; I can't stand it. You're going in there to fight. This isn't pro wrestling. But he's got a reason for why he does it, and they sat down, they explained it to me, and I'm cool with it. All the other goofy s--- that happens? I can't stand it. To explain to you how painful it is for me to sit there and watch a guy walk 25 feet to the octagon acting like a moron, it hurts me. It hurts me, and I can't stand it."

On whether he might allow other gimmicks: "I guess it depends on the mood I'm in that day too, so if you wear something really stupid, you want to hope I'm in a good mood."
