Dana White Accepts MLS Player's Challenge After Calling Soccer 'Least Talented Sport On Earth'

On March 21, UFC president Dana White was asked about fighting in hockey during a fan Q&A. His answer somehow turned into an opportunity to randomly bash soccer, as he declared it "the least talented sport on Earth"based on the large goal size and low scoring games.

That led to former MLS star Jimmy Conrad issuing a challenge to Dana:


Some quotes:

Why would a tough guy like you feel so threatened by soccer that you needed to go off on it unprovoked? Is it maybe cause you know the one thing any three year old can do is fight? Hell, mine spent a whole year fighting me.

...

Have you ever even played soccer, Dana? Can you pass a ball, like to a teammate, instead of some guy in the 3rd row? Can you run at top speed, while holding off a defender, and aiming for the corner of the goal being guarded by a massive 6'4" goal keeper? Yeah, probably not.

So listen, here's what I'm going to do. Because I like you, I'm going to give you the opportunity to join me and a few friends for a game of soccer. Since you believe playing soccer requires no talent, I'm sure you'll be the star. Unless you scared. Well let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Dana White quickly took to Twitter to say "I'm in bro!!!"

I think we all know how this ends. Dana will go, Jimmy and his friends will run circles around Dana and then Dana does the smiling "man, I was wrong. These guys are f**kin' talented. I just got my ass kicked!" And the world keeps on spinnin'.
