Recent comments made by Boxing champ Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. via twitter regarding New York Knicks point guard, Jeremy Lin and fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao have seemed to provoke Dana White to respond on last nights episode of UFC Tonight on Fuel TV.
First of all, what [he] said, I think, was racist” said White. “He’s made a couple of racist comments. And yes, you’re racist with the stuff you’ve said. … you dummy. Don’t worry about what all these other guys are doing, and shooting your big mouth off on Twitter. … And I know I speak for millions and millions of other people. Shut up …”
Since the comments aired, Mayweather’s manager Leonard Ellerbe has fired back via Twitter, hitting Dana with the Zuffa fighters under-payed accusation.
He needs to shut the [expletive] up and mind his own business, stay in his own lane and keep on taking advantage of the UFC fighters, while underpaying them. If he keeps on running his mouth, we may decide to give a free seminar to all of the UFC fighters on how the pay-per-view revenue should be distributed. This is typical Dana, who is always prone to ignorant outbursts. He should be the last person to try to judge someone else.”
