Backstage after UFC On FX 5 last night Dana White spoke to the assembled media, and rather than talk about the fights the UFC President was keen to stick the boot into the company’s former TV home Spike TV.

He didn’t say exactly why he’s angry with them, though previous conversations with him suggest that he feels they have been leaking info about the UFC’s sub-par ratings on FX to the media.

I think Spike TV’s policy of counter-programming the UFC’s major events and episodes of TUF also bothers him more than he’s willing to let on, while the fact that Bellator are set to move to the station in 2013 is also likely to be a major reason why he’s been going on the offensive recently.

Listen to what he had to say in the clip below.
