The 2024 NHL Draft was one of the most thrilling events in recent memory, but UFC President Dana White had some surprising criticisms.

What i did see was how they did the rankings, that's going to be like kids playing with crayons compared to what we are going to do.


Under Gary Bettman's leadership, the NHL has faced its share of scrutiny, but this latest critique from White is a bit unexpected. The UFC frequently holds events in Las Vegas, and with The Sphere emerging as a top-tier venue for sports and entertainment, both the NHL and UFC have hosted events there.
The NHL's decision to hold the 2024 draft at The Sphere was met with great excitement. The trades, the unpredictable picks, and backdrop were seen as a huge success. However, White has oddly criticized the NHL for the event, boasting that the UFC will put on a better show.
Dana White buries the NHL for its garbage marketing and being out of touch with its target market. He's not wrong

It's unclear why White continues to take shots at Bettman and the league. Yet despite his comments, the NHL should be proud of their production.
