Dana White has handled a considerable number of combat lawsuits over the past two decades in the field of combat. One such situation involved the UFC in a dispute with Ken Shamrock, which ultimately led to a legal battle.
Ken Shamrock was with the UFC for many years before entering into a legal battle with the promotion. In 2006, the UFC veteran had his last fight in the UFC, a trilogy fight with Tito Ortiz which he lost.
Shamrock was released from his UFC contract in 2007 and ended up suing the UFC for breach of contract, saying the promotion released him with a fight remaining on his deal.
Years after Ken Shamrock lost the legal battle with the promotion, the UFC veteran publicly criticized Dana White for fighter salary in 2013. White made sure to give the UFC veteran an appropriate response.
The UFC president criticized Shamrock for failing to pay the $ 175,000 he owed the company. In an interview with Fight Hub TV in 2013, White said:
