Dana White, the president of the mixed martial arts organization the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), says he would support an openly gay male fighter.

White made his remarks during a question and answer session as part of Saturday's bout between Liz Carmouche and Ronda Rousey for the Women's Bantamweight title. Carmouche, who is openly gay, lost.

White said that he would “fix it” if an opponent refused to fight an openly gay male fighter.

“Most of the guys that are in this sport are really good people,” White said. “I honestly don't see a situation where that would happen, but if it did, I'd fix it.”

White also rejected previous accusations that he is anti-gay: “Some of our guys and I have said some things that make it look like we're homophobes. But we're not. And we've apologized.”

During a 2008 videotaped interview with Peace Magazine, White jokingly dismissed an off-camera suggestion that his favorite movie was Titanic. “Hey, you're the one with the fucking gay-colored phone. Don't be fucking with me,” he said.

The next year, White used harsh language in an angry video rant against reporter Loretta Hunt: “Whoever gave you that quote is a pussy and a fucking faggot.”
