Dana White brings up the Tito Ortiz boxing match that never happened.

Dana White brings up the Tito Ortiz boxing match that never happened.

Oh boy, here we go. Dana White sat down and rehashed the story about his one-time feud with Tito Ortiz and the boxing match that never happened. If you were around at the time that this feud was brewing you may remember Spike TV doing a docu-short on Dana White training to fight Tito.

Tito gave Dana a date that they were going to box and Dana took it very seriously. Dana trained his ass off and showed up at the designated time and at the designated place. Tito Ortiz did not.

Later, Ortiz said that he thought it was all just a big joke. It wasn’t a good look considering Dana and Spike TV had put together this whole promotion for a fight that did not go down. The whole reason that this boxing match was going to happen was because they weren’t on good terms and Tito called Dana out on live tv after a fight.

I had Dana White on my radio show once and he told me what it was like sparring Tito. At the time, Tito was the UFC light heavyweight champion and Dan said that he’d light Tito up in sparring.

Years later, it looks like Dana White isn’t sick of telling the story.
