ESPN's 'E:60' profile of Dana White airs Tuesday

UFC president Dana White will be profiled on the ESPN news magazine show "E:60" on Tuesday, May 12 at 7pm ET.

"E:60" correspondent Tom Farrey, who also conducted a piece on Brock Lesnar for the show, speaks at length with White.

White said in an interview with ESPN Radio 1100 in Las Vegas after UFC 97 that he's not expecting a "big positive story." It'll most likely examine if White, an outspoken president with an affinity for profanity, could take the UFC to the next level.

From the video preview below, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz appears on the show to discuss the feud between himself and the UFC president.

Program Description:

[blockquote]At 39, Dana White, the president of Ultimate Fighting Championship is both czar and star of one of the worlds fastest growing sports mixed martial arts. He is at the epicenter of an enterprise that has moved from spectacle to sport in less than a decade. Mostly, White is outside-the-box, and at times, out of control. Last month, he created a national stir after posting a three-minute, profanity-laced tirade on his website aimed at MMA reporter Loretta Hunt. Premieres Tuesday, May 12th 7pm ET on ESPN. [/blockquote]
