Dana White Expands on Interest in Promoting Boxing Bouts

UFC President Dana White

By FCF Staff

Dana White raised eyebrows throughout combat sports recently by saying that the UFC might consider promoting boxing bouts, and now the promotion’s president has repeated that interest.

White was a guest on The Jime Rome podcast recently, and he was asked if he was serious, as to whether the UFC would promote boxing matches (quote via MMA Fighting):

“I just know how good we are at what we do, and I know we’re better than pretty much everybody else out there,” White said. “I think that the guys who are involved in boxing, the fighters, would enjoy being under this umbrella and fighting for us, and yeah, I do think would could do it better than everybody else does. So what the hell, why not give it a shot?”

“…On top of, I think we do our events better than they do, our production is better than the production that’s out there. I think everything in this business that you could possibly do, we do better, and we have health insurance for our fighters.”

The UFC President was also asked about the possibility that Conor McGregor could box again, and White reportedly said “never say never”.
