UFC's President Dana White has launched a vicious assault on Bob Arum, the CEO of Top Rank. During an interview with MMAFighting.com, White discussed the success of the September 15th HBO pay-per-view in Las Vegas, with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Sergio Martinez in the main event. Not long after he discussed the Chavez-Martinez card, he launched into a full blown verbal assault on Arum directly. White appeared to get further annoyed after being questioned about Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez going head to head with a UFC event on December 8th.
“I love the sport of boxing and I watched, I bought the [Julio Cesar] Chavez fight. Umm… so, yeah, I mean, I’m happy for them. Listen, whenever boxing does good things and they pull killer pay-per-view. I’m always watching to see what they do on pay-per-view and I’m not, ‘those f**ers.....they did this much!’ I’m happy for them. I want to see combat sports do better. I want to see boxing pull bigger numbers. I’m not Bob Arum, that crusty d*ck. You know what I mean?
"I’m not out there smashing everything that we do and saying negative stuff about boxing. Boxing’s f***ing great, it’s an incredible sport. I wouldn’t be sitting here right now if it wasn’t for the sport of boxing, you know? I’m not going to play Bob Arum’s little p*ssy game. F*** him.”
“That’s what they do, they went head-to-head the same night on TV. They’re crazy. Remember when Don King, Bob Arum used to go pay-per-view the same night? I know..I know...I get it. They took the same night we’re on. Bob’s a d*ck. The guy is a d*ck. Seriously. He’s just a… he’s a f***ing, you know, it’s like the guy can’t....for some reason he hates the fact that this sport is doing well. Other guys are able to make money. Other athletes are able to perform and f***ing do great things. For some reason, that bothers that old bastard. You know what I mean? F*** him.”
