"I know I have the big 'homophobe' persona and people think I'm some homophobe. I'm the furthest thing from it. I think it's ridiculous it's 2013 and the government tells two people they can't marry each other... I applaud that she came out and that she's the first one. Good for her. I hope more do. It doesn't bother me one bit. Shouldn't bother anyone else either."

-- UFC President Dana White reacting to news that female fighter Liz Carmouche came out as a lesbian. White once used the word "faggot" in an online video which earned him the anti-gay tag. He's apologized profusely over the years.
