American mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Luke Rockhold was noted for his harsh remarks to one of the journalists at a press conference before the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) tournament. A recording of the athletes’ communication with the press is available on YouTube.

Rockhold, 37, was outraged that one of the journalists gave Ecuadorian Marlon Vera a mask of a Mexican wrestler with the words “this is your culture.” Having had the opportunity to speak, the former champion severely scolded the press worker for poor preparation.

“I understand that Dana White (the head of the UFC, — approx. “Tapes.ru”) gives you carte blanche here. But you have to do your homework properly, ”said Rockhold. He stressed that such a gift offended Vera, and noted that journalists need to carefully prepare for the broadcasts, and not show disrespect for the athletes.
