UFC's Dana White Calls Floyd Mayweather A Racist, Mayweather's Manager Tells Dana To Mind His Own Business

UFC president Dana White was a bit hostile toward fellow Las Vegas resident Floyd Mayweather on Tuesday night's UFC Tonight.

In a regular bit on Fuel's UFC Tonight, UFC president Dana White gives his 'Presidential Address' which is him riffing on some subject that's irritating him. Apparently, boxer Floyd Mayweather has raised the ire of the big boss, inspiring a 90-second rant Tuesday about his views on New York Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin.

Recently, Mayweather got headlines by saying that black players do the same thing Lin is doing every night, but don't get the same praise. White took exception to that, saying to Mayweather, "Yes Floyd, you're racist with the stuff that you said."

He also calls out Mayweather for his comment about Manny Pacquiao that read "Once I stomp the midget, I'll make that mother f----- make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice."

White retorted, "Sushi's from Japan. Pacquiao's from the Philippines, dummy." He then went on to ask that Mayweather drop the act and just fight Pacquiao already.

White has recently been frustrated with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's history of "being consistent about being inconsistent" and cited their handling of Mayweather's recent 90-day conviction for domestic violence as an example.

Mayweather's manager, Leonard Ellerbe, responded which led to another response from White (via Yahoo! Sports):

"He needs to shut the [expletive] up and mind his own business, stay in his own lane and keep on taking advantage of the UFC fighters, while underpaying them," Ellerbe told Yahoo! Sports after learning of White's rant. "If he keeps on running his mouth, we may decide to give a free seminar to all of the UFC fighters on how the pay-per-view revenue should be distributed. This is typical Dana, who is always prone to ignorant outbursts. He should be the last person to try to judge someone else."

After learning of Ellerbe's response, White sent a text to Yahoo! Sports directed to Ellerbe.

"Just for the record, shut the [expletive] up [because] I wasn't talking to you," White said by text. "I was talking to Floyd. We're doing something amazing. We're building a sport while you guys are destroying one. "
