Following UFC 297 which noticed Dricus Du Plessis beat Sean Strickland by break up resolution to grow to be the brand new champ, Anik says he was bored with the toxicity of MMA followers after he thought Du Plessis gained. He says the hate bought so unhealthy he thought about stepping away from his position as a UFC commentator.

“I’m rising bored with this MMA area somewhat bit, and simply the morass of negativity when there’s a shut combat,” Anik stated on his podcast with Kenny Florian “As a result of even in case you and I each thought Dricus Du Plessis gained the combat, we attempt to current that data respectfully. And once I go onto X or I’m going to our YouTube feedback, it looks as if numerous these followers are simply in assault mode. And I don’t know if these followers are informal followers or not.

I respect the fervour, however I’m getting to a degree at 45 years of age the place I don’t understand how a lot time I’ve left on this MMA area,” Anik continued. “If I’m going do professional soccer, I’m not essentially gonna be coping with this lowest frequent denominator on a regular basis. I don’t know, man. I simply really feel like there’s numerous malice and disrespect from the fan base,” Anik added.

Now, following Jon Anik’s feedback, UFC CEO Dana White was requested about it and gave his ideas on it. The UFC boss believes Anik must not take note of what the trolls must say, and as a substitute, simply concentrate on himself.

“You already know, Jon Anik had kind of a meltdown a few weeks in the past in regards to the followers,” White informed Las Vegas Review-Journal (h/t MMAMania). “I really like these things although. I find it irresistible, you already know. I play this little recreation … with the media, too. I find it irresistible, man. I don’t know, I really like these things, I really like getting up day by day and battling. I really like the issue, like UFC 300, we’re attempting to get this factor accomplished. It’s virtually like I thrive in chaos and if there isn’t chaos, I’ll create it. It’s just like the Sphere. Why am I doing this? I can simply placed on an occasion at you already know, some other [venue].”

The excellent news is that Jon Anik walked back the comments, and maybe he’ll take Dana White’s recommendation and never take note of the web feedback.
