Dana White Unimpressed: ‘This S*** Is Getting Silly’

Dana White

Getty Dana White gives a speech during 2019 UFC Performance Institute Panel and UFC Fight Night Shenzhen Press Conference at UFC Performance Institute Shanghai on June 20, 2019 in Shanghai, China.

This week, boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya announced his return to the ring. The 48-year-old boxer announced plans to fight on July 3, nearly 13 years since his last professional bout.

“The Golden Boy” made the mic-drop announcement on Friday during the Triller Fight Club press conference promoting the April 17 Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren boxing bout. “July 3rd, I’m making my comeback,” De La Hoya said.

No opponent has been named for The Golden Boy.

So naturally, UFC president Dana White was asked about De La Hoya. White and De La Hoya have been at odds for years. For example, White called The Golden Boy a “cokehead” in 2018 after De La Hoya promoted the Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz 3 fight which led to the nearly 50-year-old Liddell getting knocked out.

During the UFC 260 post-fight press conference Saturday night, White was asked by The Mac Life’s Oscar Willis if he would be willing to allow a UFC fighter to box The Golden Boy.

“To box De La Hoya?” White replied. “Come on, guys. This s*** is getting silly. I mean, you guys know it’s silly. You just want to ask me silly f*****g questions. Come on, you’ve got 50-year-old f*****g guys boxing and you guys are actually talking about it and covering the press conferences? Come on, you guys.”
