It is well known by now that UFC President Dana White and longtime boxing promoter Bob Arum aren’t exactly the best of friends.
The UFC President recently went off on the boxing promoter again and this time he called him the “biggest piece of sh*t” in all of sports.
“F—k him. F—k that guy,” White said on The Jim Rome Podcast. “This is the same guy who said this same shit 15 years ago about me and the Fertittas. He said ‘they’re losing oodles and oodles of money’ and this business was a joke, it was going to go under, nobody will ever be into a sport like this and here we are today.” This guy is such a jerk off. Literally the biggest piece of sh-t in all of the sports, Bob Arum, ladies and gentlemen.”
Arum has criticized the UFC a lot in the past as well, most recently labeling the world’s largest MMA promotion as “desperate.”
White recently announced that the UFC is getting involved in boxing because he believes that they should give the sport a shot.
“I just know how good we are at what we do. I know we’re better than pretty much everybody else out there,” White said. “I think that the guys who are involved in boxing, the fighters, would enjoy being under this umbrella and fighting for us. Yeah, I do think we could do it better than everybody else does. So what the hell, why not give it a shot?”
Despite White’s announcement that the UFC is getting involved in boxing, there is no timeline as to when that would begin.
