Sports fans have no interest in politics, according to UFC president Dana White, who ripped woke athletes as out of touch in an interview this week.

“They don’t want to hear that,” White said on Fox’s “Hannity” Monday night. “They don’t want to hear what your opinions are or who you’re voting for, what you’re doing, they want to get away from everything in their life and they want to focus on two, three, four hours, however long the sport is when you turned it on.”

Show host Sean Hannity cited Lakers superstar LeBron James, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the MLB’s recent decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta to Colorado as recent examples of jocks flexing their political muscle — and getting burned.

“You look at the ratings of the finals in the NBA: 5.6 million viewers is a disaster,” Hannity said. “If you look around the stadium, I don’t care what the sport is, I see people of all backgrounds, all races, all coming together because they love and have to share a passion for that sport, right?”

White, who endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2016 and 2020, claimed his athletes aren’t muzzled.
