Video: Dana White Gets Personal Against Mayweather vs. Pee-Drinking What’s-His-Name


"What made Floyd Mayweather a pay-per-view star was Oscar De La Hoya. I know Floyd can’t sell tickets without Oscar but what’s happening here is, boxing is doing it to you again. They’re giving you the fight that you don’t want. Nobody asked for this fight with, ah, with Mayweather and, ah, what’s his name? What’s his name? Nobody even knows, nobody in this room even knows who Floyd’s fighting! I should know, I’m a big boxing guy and I respect the guy that he’s fighting, I know his name but I can’t think of it right now. But that’s my point, nobody gives a shit! Boxing is trying to sell you the fight that nobody cares about. People wanna see Mayweather/Pacquiao. But they’re not giving you that fight…

You show up to see Floyd Mayweather not fight. This guy will run around in circles. Everybody wants to know why the UFC is becoming so popular? It’s because they’re sick of boxers not fighting…basically you get to see ‘Dancing With the Stars’ again with Floyd Mayweather, except you have to pay for it this time…On that same night, on that UFC card, you guys can all tune in and you can watch not one fight, you guys can watch five great fights that night, for ten dollars less than what Floyd wants you to pay to see him run around in circles and lay on the ropes and move around and not fight."

Dana White may have muzzled his video blogs, but he won’t hesitate to lay down some verbal bitchsmack recorded against a green-screen when the situation calls for it. And Floyd Mayweather’s anti-MMA rhetoric has clearly gotten under his skin. Dana may have a point about Mayweather not setting up the matchup that fans want to see, but he should be careful about banging that drum too hard. After all, which fight did MMA fans ask for: Lesnar vs. Carwin or Lesnar vs. Fedor? When did we start clamoring for Franklin vs. Belfort? And by the way, Dana, Floyd’s opponent is Juan Manuel Marquez, and he’s fabulous.

Dana is 100% right. Mayweather will dance and HBO commentators will say how amazing he is as he hits Marquez's gloves. Mayweather will NEVER fight Pacman, because Floyd never fights guys who are dangerous for him.

I am Michigan Man. So, I've got love for Floyd, but that was a hell of a job by Dana ... atta boy D dubya

I like Dana, if more businessmen were like him the world would be a much better place.
hotsaucemonster- September 10, 2009 at 10:22 am
it not DWs fault that he couldn't give us Fedor-lesnar its M1's

Mayweather is a racist piece of shit. I fucking hate people that go "I dont mean to sound racist, but ". He said Black and Mexicans were the only ones dominating boxing, so white people got sad and had to start MMA :( to make us feel better about ouwseves. Not counting the fact that white people didnt start UFC, and MMA is dominated by folks of all colors across the different weight divisions. One could also argue MMA is far older also in the form of martial arts competitions throughout the ages.


because he said so!!

BULLSHIT. Why the fuck does he get away with saying shit like that?

I agree with Dana, no one wanted to see this fight against Manuel Marquez but its a lead up fight to the eventual Pac-man Mayweather fight.

I think Dana is forgetting something though. Firstly an average boxing match that goes the distance is double the length of your average UFC fight that goes the distance which equals more bang for your buck.

Secondly Dana is forgetting the undercard, Boxing undercards go on for hours literally and there are generally some great fights there because they are all guys that know that they need to put on an impressive performance because the chance to fight on such a great card with huge stars headlining comes just once in a lifetime.

I remember back when I use to by PPV (back before this whole internet thing) Me and my buddies ordered Tyson Vs Ettienne on PPV and none of us made it to the main event. The card started at 9PM and we didn't get to the main event until about 3AM.

So unless Dana wants to start giving people their $50 worth and air the prelims, he really needs to hush up.

I agree with the weirdness of that being a fake press conference but like the fact Dana goes after the dying sport of boxing. They need to focus on their shit alone without pretending to have better fighters than those affiliated with MMA.
TheSlothman- September 10, 2009 at 9:50 am
Listen, i hate Floyd as much as anyone else , but Dana needs to STFU here about Marquez. This guy is taking a fight out of w.c. , that he cant win on the cards, cus hes a FUCKING WARRIOR!! Dana White knows exactly who he's fighting, and for no good reason he goes after 1 of the few modern boxers that actually does fight all out. Classic douchebag
Marcer- September 10, 2009 at 9:26 am
Seriously, what the hell is that video? Did Dana really stand in front of a green screen and do a fake press conference, and then release it on the UFC youtube channel to get his opinion out? I mean, that's an interesting tactic by the UFC, but man, did they not think anyone was going to catch onto what that was?

Shouldnt it be kind of embarassing that he was pretending to be up in front of a podium with all the ufc & sponsor logos behind him talking to the media? Or proclaiming that nobody knew Marquez's name? Is there anyone who thinks for a second that Dana couldnt actually remember Marquez's name?

Just kind of weird, is all.

^ "Don't listen to Smitty, the text is advantageous to those of us who like to slack off at work without it being obvious to everyone within earshot."

Couldn't Agree more Arm farmer.

Back to DW though, who in the fuck doesn't know who Marquez is? Dana had some good points but then ruined them with horrible ones. Also he can't really talk shit against dudes that drink their piss since his Lyoto does it...mmm.

ArmFarmer- September 10, 2009 at 7:39 am
@Viva hate

The real fail was when you said the words "epic fail".

A failed first post, which is pointless and nerdy as fuck to begin with even when you succeed, and then immediately following up with the term epic fail..

I hate you

Where's Phil Baroni when you need him..

Just sayin, my manager can't hear me reading text from his office ;)

DW is a moron 90% of the time.

There is not a single boxing fan in the world that isn't looking forward to Mayweather's return to the ring, no matter who's in front of him.

Marquez certainly isn't Pacquiao but he's a dangerous fighter and deserves respect. 2 of his 4 losses are to Manny and he went the distance in both. There's no reason anyone shouldn't remember his name. If anything it just shows that boxing doesn't have the marketing machine behind it that the UFC does.

And like everyone before me has pointed out, DW has not held up his end of the bargain when it comes to putting on fights fans want to see. I wish someone would point these things out to Dana when he makes these outrageous claims so we could get his reaction on camera. Though i'm sure he would just spout more bullshit to counter it.
for the love of mma- September 10, 2009 at 7:27 am
i disagree at least dana is trying to make fedor and lesner happen if you watch boxing then you would know that mayweather is ducking pacquio!! and i do want to see lesner carwin and belfort and franklin cause im a real fan. sounds like this just a job for you guys!!!!

"nobody in this room even knows who Floyd's fighting!"

Nobody was in the room?
shitbag- September 10, 2009 at 7:20 am
Dana's a moron, NO WAY am I missing Mayweather v. Marquez for Franklin v. Belfort! Marquez is a real man, something Dana would know nothing about. Not too mention the boxing undercards are actually good now, really good - but I gotta give props to Dana for that, boxing fucking finally took notice.

And this is one hell of a HUGE fight, followed by another HUGE fight with Pacquaio vs. Cotto which then will be followed by an ENORMOUS fight between the winner of those two fights.

Not to mention I NEVER pay for PPVs, that's what the internet is for!
Bringbackbabalu- September 10, 2009 at 7:15 am
I guess Dana has to go back to being a dbag and talking shit that just makes him sound like a hypocrite. FFS like the UFC never gives people a mediocre fight nobody cares about, and he tries to sell it as the biggest thing ever. Hendo vs Franklin for example, the fight you've been waiting for (that nobody cares about) god why doesn't he just shut up and quit trying to insult people, he was doing so good. I really hate this fucking guy I wish the UFC would just dump him or something.

...and washing it back warm from the "tap"?

...put it in the fridge before ya swig it...or at least put some ice cubes in there.

Um...he's not really in front of anyone in this. He's just standing in front of a blue screen in a small room.
