Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the UFC can't seem to escape each other right now, whether it's UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor wanting to box him or UFC President Dana White offering $25 million to each fighter to finally make the fight happen.
Mayweather Jr. has known Dana White for a long time now and according to Mayweather Jr., White used to be his errand boy.
“I don’t want to talk to Dana White,” Mayweather said to MMA Fighting. “Remember, Dana White, he was a player he was a boss but he was a small boss. The big bosses were the Fertittas. But then the Fertitta’s chose to sell the UFC so Dana is just an employee. Dana White - I like Dana White, I don’t have anything against him - but I can remember Dana White used to hang around me and Jeff Mayweather and carry my bags. Dana White, I remember when you used to carry my bags. And remember Dana White, I showed you love. You had the little Bullenbeisser patch I wore on my trunks for you, Dana. I’ve always been good to you. But then all of the sudden he cut his head bald and he’s such a tough guy. He’s such a tough guy.”
Mayweather Jr. is also critical of the relationship between Dana White and the current UFC Lightweight Champion.
“All I’ve got to say is this, why every time Conor McGregor go out there and fight, Dana White is still an employee but Dana White makes more money than Conor McGregor when McGregor go out there and fight?” Mayweather Jr. said.
McGregor hasn’t competed since UFC 205, where he defeated Eddie Alvarez to become a two division UFC champion. He's currently taking time off awaiting the birth of his first child.
