Dana White is not shy. Not at all.
When talking about the possibility of a Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight, the CEO of the UFC said he sees the fight happening. Then, he went all scorched earth of Jeff Mayweather, Floyd’s uncle, and Bob Arum, the boxer’s promoter. Here’s what he said, in the video above:
“What I would like to clarify is all the (expletive) about the 80/20 split (between the UFC and McGregor),” White said. “Jeff Mayweather? Come on Jeff. Me and Jeff go way back. Jeff, are you the spokesman now for (expletive) Team Mayweather? And Bob Arum? You piece of (expletive) – (expletive) you too. What do they know about this fight? Want to know what they know about this fight? Nothing. Believe me.”
A potential McGregor-Mayweather match has been beset with all sorts of rumors, posturing over money, and now, bad blood between the people who will end up being the promoters. White may still be steamed at Arum for saying that the UFC wants half of McGregor’s purse.
It seems everything leading up to a fight (if it really happens) will be just as entertaining as the fight itself.
