Morning Report: Dana White admits argument with Josh Koscheck almost got physical

The rocky back-and-forth between Dana White and Josh Koscheck took another strange turn Wednesday when the UFC president admitted to Colin Cowherd his blowouts with the Ultimate Fighter alum almost got physical.

"Listen, I'm not trying to run around and get into physical confrontations with the guys, but yea, I've had plenty of cases where the guys are like, 'How bout I come over there and kick your ass?' I could give you a lot [of examples]. Phil Baroni. Phil Baroni and I had a really good one.

"Josh Kocheck and I had a really good one a couple weeks ago. When you're the boss of 600 ultimate fighters, you know. Guys have threatened to get physical many times, but, you know, we work it out."

Koscheck isn't the biggest fan of White these days.

In July, the recent Bellator signee called White the "little errand b---h" of UFC majority owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. Reacting to UFC 191's Reebok sponsorship payouts earlier this week, Koscheck called UFC fighters "slaves" earning "chicken feed."
