UFC president Dana White has been identified as the alleged victim in a sex-tape extortion case.
The man accused of attempted to extort White for $200,000 is Ernesto Joshua Ramos, who previously went to prison for 366 days after pleading guilty to extortion against what was at the time an unnamed businessman in Las Vegas back in 2015.
Now White has been revealed as the victim due to Ramos filing a civil lawsuit in which he is attempting to sue White for breaking an alleged deal to pay him $450,000 in order to not reveal the UFC president’s name.
White has since released a statement in which he indicates that he’s looking forward to seeing the case be dismissed in court.
“I just found out that a b———- lawsuit was filed against me yesterday,” White said. “This guy went to federal prison for trying to extort me over five years ago. Now he’s hired a lawyer who is also a convicted felon, and he’s trying to extort me again for $10 million. He got no money from me last time and he won’t be getting any money from me this time. I look forward to the court dismissing this quickly so I can get rid of these scumbags forever.”
The original criminal case back in 2015 spoke of how an unnamed businessman, now alleged to be White, had been paying a stripper at the Spearmint Rhino stripclub up to $10,000 per visit to have private dances and sex with him for several months in 2014.
The stripper, Ramos’ girlfriend, was then alleged to have videod the UFC president having sex with her in a hotel room without his knowledge, and afterwards Ramos attempted to use that to extort White.
However, in 2015, FBI arrested Ramos after after agents videotaped an exchange of money between himself and the businessman.
As part of his plea deal, Ramos is reported to have handed over the only copies of the alleged sex-tape that exist.
