Dana White is a smart guy.
He should know that all this is doing is making Mayweather’s fight with Miguel Cotto even bigger. It doesn’t matter what you say about Mayweather as long as you are speaking about him it is making him more money.
Here is what White had to say.
First of all, what he said I think was racist. He’s made a couple of racist comments and, yes, Floyd, you’re racist with the stuff that you’ve said. First of all, Jeremy Lin gets all of this credit because he’s an Asian player in the NBA that African Americans never get? Yeah. He’s getting all this praise because he’s an Asian guy playing in the NBA. You say that African Americans don’t get it? Really, Kobe Bryant doesn’t get any praise? Michael Jordan never got any praise? The list goes on and on of the guys who completely get praised for being great NBA basketball players. Not only can he compete and make it in the NBA, the guy is tearing it up and is breaking records, you knucklehead. OK?
The Money Team responds.
“He needs to shut the [expletive] up and mind his own business, stay in his own lane and keep on taking advantage of the UFC fighters, while underpaying them,” Ellerbe told Yahoo! Sports after learning of White’s rant. “If he keeps on running his mouth, we may decide to give a free seminar to all of the UFC fighters on how the pay-per-view revenue should be distributed. This is typical Dana, who is always prone to ignorant outbursts. He should be the last person to try to judge someone else.”
UFC does make great matchups, so you don’t see what is happening with Mayweather and Pacquiao happen too often in the UFC, but the fighters are underpaid for the revenue they generate and the risks they take.
Mayweather isn’t a racist, he is a master manipulator and currently the biggest Villain in sports.
He laid the trap and people are falling right in.
