UFC president Dana White went on a profanity-laced tirade and used an anti-gay slur while rebutting an online story by a female reporter that was unflattering to his organization.

Bleep show: Dana White's online rant has UFC back in the mainstream spotlight. But his behavior could spell doom for the sport, Alex Marvez says.

White's remarks were contained in a video blog in which he assailed Loretta Hunt for a story posted Wednesday on Sherdog.com. Hunt reported that some managers and agents were being given less locker room access to fighters at UFC events.

White assailed Hunt and an anonymous source she cited in the story. White referred to her as a "(expletive) dumb b****" and to the source with an anti-gay epithet.

"Hey Loretta, if you're going to write a story, you (expletive) moron, at least make sure it's (expletive) true and you have some facts," he says in the video. "And if you're going to put some (expletive) quotes in there, get some quotes from some people who at least have the (expletive) (courage) to put their (expletive) name on it."
