Dana White goes off on Floyd Mayweather Jr. in this video from FUEL TV for “racist” comments Floyd recently made about the New York Knicks’ Jeremy Lin and fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao.
Update: Mayweather’s manager caught wind of the video and sent this response to 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.”
Of course, Dana White still got the last word.
“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. “
