It’s a strange world that we live in. Every day, we hear about numerous controversies involving well-known personalities. Now, it has happened to none other than the UFC president Dana White. A few years ago, the FBI arrested a Las Vegas-based real estate agent Ernesto Joshua Ramos over the Dana White sex-tape controversy. But what is the truth behind the story? We have the answers!
Ernesto Joshua Ramos’ Claims!
The FBI took Ramos into custody in 2015 after finding out that he had been extorting up to $200,000 from a “prominent Las Vegas businessman”. As per a Nevada suit, the “businessman” was apparently filmed being intimate with Ramos’ girlfriend sometime in 2014.
The businessman in question is Dana White. Ramos also claimed that White backed out of a possible $450,000 deal which would ensure that his name doesn’t get out in the public. However, the Las Vegas citizen failed to convince Dana White’s legal team to sign a bankable non-disclosure agreement.
As per the woman embroiled in the controversy, Ernesto Joshua Ramos ended up pleading guilty and serving a 366-day prison sentence. Prior to the Dana White Sex-Tape scandal, she had been “dating” the UFC president. The two tied the knot eventually. And then, the woman ended up filming their intimate moments, without asking for White’s approval.

While speaking to the Review-Journal, Dana White said that he had just found out about the “BS” lawsuit against him. He added:
This guy went to federal prison for trying to extort me over five years ago. Now he’s hired a lawyer who is also a convicted felon, and he’s trying to extort me again for $10 million. He got no money from me last time and he won’t be getting any money from me this time. I look forward to the court dismissing this quickly so I can get rid of these scumbags forever.
The Dana White Sex-Tape lawsuit also mentions that during the time of the controversy, White was at a UFC show in Brazil. The suit has also named UFC’s parent company Zuffa in it.
