Earlier today, Dana White called into the UFC Unfiltered podcast hosted by Matt Serra and Jim Norton and discussed the spectacle that was Chuck Liddell vs Tito Ortiz III presented by Golden Boy Promotions, and, well…let’s just get right into the quotes. And I know they look like these looooong boring blocks of text, but I promise you they’re not. Just read.
“Listen, I love Chuck Liddell and I don’t ever want to badmouth Chuck Liddell. People do think I’m badmouthing Chuck Liddell, but the reality is – lets says this first – I heard last week that this cokehead, ‘Oscar Del La Weirdo’ is talking shit, that I don’t have any place to tell guys when to retire. First of all, it’s called friendship you fucking cokehead. I’ve been friends with Chuck Liddell for 20-years and the reality is that Chuck Liddell retired when he should’ve retired, 8 or 9 years ago whenever it was.”
“Chuck Liddell is 50-years-old and has no business fighting anymore and that fact that the State of California even let that fight happen is disgusting. It’s disgusting. Chuck Liddell is a huge superstar and has a great legacy in this sport. So of course, as friend, anyone that claims to be a friend of Chuck Liddell and was anywhere near this fight is full of shit. They aren’t a friend of Chuck Liddell. To let him go in and fight this fight. It’s terrible.”
“The problem is Chuck Liddell was a fighter, Chuck Liddell loves to fight and that’s his passion in life, but there comes a day and age. Fighting is a young mans’ game. He can’t do it and Oscar Del La fucking Hoya says ‘oh come over to Golden Boy where we respect the fighters and it makes me sick what the fighters were paid and all this shit.’ Out of 14 fights on the card, five fights were amateur bouts which means they didn’t pay them jack shit.“
“12 of the professional fighters on the card made less than $3k and $3k. “What are you talking about you cokehead junkie? Some of the guys made $1k and $1k and he says that he respects the fighters so much? He couldn’t even remember their names at the press conference.”
“I hope someone talks Del La Hoya into fighting again, and I hope the State of California makes the fight, and I hope he gets knocked out just like Chuck Liddell did. In the first round. The cokehead nutball.”
STOP THE FIGHT!!! STOP THE FIGHT!!! OH MY GOD!!! DANA WHITE – THE KING GOOF – IS GOING OFF!!!
Holy fuck that’s funny stuff, huh? I mean…De La Weirdo, De La Dummy, De La Cokehead, he was just knocking De La’s out of the park! Each and every one was just drilled 430 dead center! And shockingly enough, this berserk rant that one THOUSAND percent made Dana as red in the face as he’s ever been…it all made complete and total sense. Everything he said about Chuck was accurate, everything he said about Oscar was accurate, and I agreed with it all. The lashings were well deserved. This is, pretty much, Dana White’s masterpiece. And because of that, I’ll let him take us out of this blog with one final block of text…
“Tito and Oscar Del La Dummy were made for each other. Those two fucking nutheads. First of all, Tito said ‘You guys want to get paid? Come over to Golden Boy MMA.’ Are you kidding me? Hey, you wait my brother, you wait to see how all this pans out. Everybody is going to be suing everybody in a couple of months. There was no money made over there. Del La Hoya is a moron. An absolute moron and I don’t know how Chuck allowed himself to get talked into this shit.”
