Dana White seems to be sick of hearing about – and from – Triller.
In recent months, Jake Paul, Triller bigwig Ryan Kavanaugh, and the rest of the celebrity boxing movement have shaken up the combat sports landscape. However, White has been clear about his stance and stated that he has little interest in collaborating no matter how many times Triller executives call.
At the UFC 262 post-fight news conference on Saturday, White said he is absolutely sick of these celebrities.
“Don’t even ask me about these idiots. Who gives a sh*t? Does anybody give a sh*t? You do? I don’t give a sh*t what they think. You think I care what Triller thinks? I don’t even take their calls.
“This idiot calls me every day. He calls me every day: ‘Please answer my call. Please talk to me. Why won’t you talk to me?’ Because I don’t give a f*ck about you. Do your thing. Leave me alone. Go f*cking do whatever it is you’re doing. Knock yourself out.
“I (couldn’t) care less. I have no interest in talking to any of those idiots. They can do their thing. Do your thing. Stop talking about me. What do you give a sh*t what I’m doing? Go do your thing,” the UFC President said
White went on to say that he knows why Triller and Paul keep mentioning the UFC and its warriors, but he isn’t happy about it.
White perplexed by the Triller activity in general
“I don’t even know what you’re doing. What is this thing you’re trying to build? What are you doing? What do I have to do with it? What do I have to do with it or my guys? Do your thing,” White said.
“Are you starting an MMA organization? … F*cking go away. Go do whatever you’re doing. Stop texting me. Stop calling me. Stop f*cking asking the media to ask me things, OK? Beat it. Get lost.”
White’s remarks came only hours after it was reported that White had stopped a possible fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Georges St-Pierre.
Apparently, Triller was trying to bring the two together because “GSP” was already under contract with the UFC despite being inactive.
