Dana White Says He’s Willing To Fight Dan Le Batard, Takes Shot At Jorge Masvidal

UFC President Dana White and ESPN personality Dan Le Batard became enemies recently when Le Batard questioned whether or not UFC fighters were underpaid.

Le Batard challenged White to a charity fight during their interaction and White has accepted the challenge.

“The last thing anybody wants to see is two 50-year-old idiots fighting. One thing we've all learned from the fight business is nothing good comes out of 50-year-olds fighting. Except, there's a shitload of people that would love to see me get knocked out and there's even more people that would love to see Dan Le Batard get knocked out. This isn't a negotiation. I put up $250,000, what's he put up? We're negotiating? He said he wanted to fight me. I said, okay, I'll put up $250,000 and we'll do it. 'You're lowballing me like all your fighters and there will be a negotiation.' No, idiot, there won't be a negotiation. You wanna fight, let's fight,” White said at the UFC 250 post-fight press conference (via Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful).

There is no word at this time whether the challenge would be a boxing match or an MMA fight.

Another personal White has been having issues with is Jorge Masvidal and Masvidal recently offered to help train Le Batard, which led White to taking a jab at the UFC star.

“He's out of work, so, makes sense,” says White.

Neither Le Batard or Masvidal have responded to the recent comments made by White at this time.
