UFC president Dana White has been challenged to get into a boxing ring with a superstar.
Earlier this month, fans learned that Triller has been trying to set up a boxing match former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and boxing superstar Oscar De La Hoya. However, the match has seemingly hit a major roadblock: the UFC president.
“GSP” is under contract with the UFC and needs to get permission from the promotion to box De La Hoya under the Triller banner. However, White appears to have no interest in working with Triller or De La Hoya. During the UFC 262 post-fight presser on May 15, White went on a rant about De La Hoya and Triller, telling them to leave him alone and stop calling.
De La Hoya, who has a tumultuous history with White, took to Twitter on Friday to air his frustration with the UFC president, challenging him to a scrap.
“@danawhite Quit blocking @GeorgesStPierre’s chance to fight. How about we get into the ring first little B*#ch then after I kick your ass, I’ll fight a real man #DeLaHoyaGSP #LetGSPFight”
