(See? This is why you don’t get into a bling-off with Floyd Mayweather. Or any guy whose nickname is "Money," now that we think about it.)
Though previous reports indicated that the UFC was considering changing the May 1 date for UFC 113 so as not to compete head-to-head with the Floyd Mayweather-Not Manny Pacquiao fight, on Tuesday White told his hometown paper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, that the UFC "was going May 1st still." One day later, it was an entirely different story. Cagewriter confirmed with White that the UFC has moved UFC 113 to May 8 in Montreal in order to avoid a showdown with a boxing pay-per-view bohemoth and, in classic fight promoter style, White has managed to find a way to interpret this as a sign that boxing is completely ridiculous:
"We were trying to not go the same night as boxing but these [expletive] guys can’t get out of their own way," White told Cagewriter. "I have never seen anything so unorganized, selfish and dysfunctional as boxing. It’s a joke!"
We can only assume that’s an edited quote, and that the full version features White going off on an ‘inconsiderate’ John Mayer for scheduling a concert in Florida on the same night as UFC 109 in Las Vegas, before then turning his ire on the ‘complete morons’ who run Disney on Ice.Read More DIGG THIS
