Dana White spoke on the Real Quick podcast and reacted to comments made by boxing ace Oscar De La Hoya. The former Olympian boxer had some unpleasant things to say about White when the UFC President shot down De La Hoya’s request. Oscar De La Hoya wanted to battle Georges St-Pierre; however, White made sure that contractually, that fight wouldn’t happen.

Whether it be at post-fight press conferences or interviews, White finds a way of warring with De La Hoya. Hardcore fans will remember that at one point in time, Top Rank’s Bob Arum used to be cannon fodder. However, due to certain assertions made by De La Hoya, a lifelong enmity seems to have been sparked.

A major contributor to their beef came at a time when Oscar De La Hoya was promoting Chuck Liddle vs Tito Ortiz 3. ‘The Golden Boy’ claimed that he paid his fighters much better than Dana White and the UFC brass did. This is what provided the rocket fuel for what has become one of the most iconic beefs in the combat sports world.
