Dana White and Oscar De La Hoya’s dislike for each other has completely boiled over on social media, with both men ranting at each other for the world to see.
Decorated boxing champ De La Hoya started off the fireworks when he took a swipe at White while writing to featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski following his victory at UFC 266 on Saturday night.
“Hey Alexander Volkanovski, you just won a brutal battle for UFC and made 1/20 of what you’re worth,” De La Hoya wrote to Volkanovski. “Dana White, have some f*cking respect for yourself and these fighters and pay these warriors what they deserve.”
It didn’t take long for White to respond in his typically fiery fashion.
“Shut the f*ck up crack head,” White retaliated. “Faking that you had COVID and robbing me of watching you get knocked the f*ck out by Vitor Belfort. You should win an academy award for your hospital performance.”
“That’s all you got Dana White?” De La Hoya fired back. “You’re accusing me of FAKING a virus that killed almost 700,000 Americans to avoid a fight?? You pathetic piece of sh*t you’ve never even laced up the gloves. And you completely ignored my original point I made about UNDERPAYING YOUR FIGHTERS.”
That clearly struck a nerve as White then came back at him with all guns blazing.
“Don’t worry about Volkanovski you clown,” White said. “He has a team of very intelligent, sophisticated people behind him and he’s clearly doing very well for himself. If he needs to buy an 8 ball then maybe he will reach out to you for some guidance. It’s no secret you’re a liar, drug addict, and all around scumbag. It doesn’t matter that you ‘laced up gloves’ and there is no doubt you accomplished big things in boxing. But out of the ring you’re an absolute f*cking loser.
“When you were a one and done MMA promoter you lied about what Chuck and Tito would make and you paid everyone sh*t!! Not to mention you didn’t even take the time to learn the names of your fighters on the card. So f*ck off. Leave the fight promoting to me and do the whole world a favor and fight Vitor Belfort so we can all watch you go to sleep!!!”
