It’s a well-known fact that Dana White doesn’t take too kindly to competition. Once he sees a threat he personally attacks whatever promoter dares try their hand in the MMA world. Right now, that guy is Oscar De La Hoya. Since the inception of Golden Boy MMA, the Dana/Oscar feud has been heating up and looks to not be slowing down any time soon.
Oscar went on a radio show and explained the beef between the two and from his perspective, it’s very telling. Basically, Dana is doing what he does when he’s mad. He brings up something personal, either recent or relating to someone’s ancestors, and beats it to death.
Oscar laughs at the juvenile nature and claims that UFC fighters call him almost daily, saying they are unhappy. I guess Golden Boy MMA actually is a legitimate threat to the UFC.
