Dana White just tweeted out a UFC on Fox promo that blew my mind. The interview that Ariel Helwani did with Bob Arum some time back has become the stuff of legend. Arum said that the UFC and MMA in general is a bunch of non-athletes rolling around like homosexuals who all look like "skinhead white guys." Arum then said that the fanbase also looked like "skinhead white guys."
The UFC must have been keeping that in their back pocket looking for the right time to strike back, and they found it.
Check the video:
Arum and Top Rank Boxing are, of course, putting on the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez show this Saturday night live on HBO pay-per-view.
In a bit of a funny turn, Arum recently talked about how afraid he is of putting on Pacquaio vs. Floyd Mayweather, Jr.because of Floyd's tendency to say things that are insulting to individuals and large bases of people.
Looks like he lost the battle on this one.
