Were UFC Fighters Biogenesis Clients? Prez Dana White Doesn't "Give a Shit"

While

New Times detailed evidence that several MLB stars

were clients of the PED-pushing Biogenesis clinic, our original source Porter Fischer

has since claimed

that other athletes, including mixed-martial arts fighters, were amongst the clinic's clients.

Though, UFC President Dana White says he doesn't really care that much to investigate the claims.

"These guys get tested by the government; I don't give a s--t about Biogenesis," White told MMAJunkies.com. "I've got so much s--t to do. I can barely keep up with what I'm doing now. I'm not going to fly down there or get on the phone with these guys."

Previously he had called the Biogenesis accusations "just another f---king headache I don't need."

Fischer, it should be pointed out, never mentioned that the MMA fighters were under contract with UFC. Like boxers, MMA fighters are drug tested by state athletic commissions.

So, White seems to be taking a wait-and-see approach to the scandal.

"Believe me, if bad s--t is going to happen, it's going to come to me."
