Dana White Blasts Mayweather | “Get in there and fight Manny Pacquiao!”
During Tuesday night’s “UFC Tonight” Dana White took it upon himself to once again speak on boxing, taking shots at Floyd Mayweather in response to “Money’s” controversial tweet about basketball player Jeremy Lin.
“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise” -Mayweather via Twitter
“First of all I think what he said was racist. He’s said a couple of racist coments. And yes Floyd you’re racist for the stuff that you said.”
“First of all, Jeremy Lin gets all this credit because he’s an Asian player in the NBA, that African Americans never get? Ya! he’s getting all this credit ’cause he’s an Asian guy playing in the NBA. And you say African Americans never get it? Kobe Bryant doesnt get any praise? Michael Jordan never got any praise? The list goes on and on of guys who completly get praised for being great NBA basketball players. Not only can he compete and make it in the NBA, the guy is tearing it up and breaking records, you knucklehead”
White then directed his rant towards the 2010 comment made by Floyd, where he stated he would make Manny Pacquiao “make some sushi rolls and cook some rice.”
“Second of all, You said Manny Pacquiao should go make sushi somewhere. Sushi is from Japan, he’s from the Phillipines dummy! Don’t worry about what all these other guys are doing and shooting your big mouth off on twitter. What you should worry about is getting in there and makin the fight all the boxing fans want to see. Get in there and fight Manny Pacquiao! You dont deserve more of the purse. Split that, if there was ever a fight in history that should be split 50-50, it’s the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight. Shut up, both of you split the money up and put on the fight that everybody, including me wants to see. Yes I run the UFC and stuff, I’m a boxing fan and I want to see this fight too and I know I speak for millions and millions of other people!”
“Shut up and make the fight Floyd!”
