Dana White Vs. Frank Warren – Round 2

From Josh Hedges/Zuffa:

Dana White vs. Frank Warren – Round 2

As many of you know, British boxing promoter Frank Warren disrespected MMA and its fighters a couple weeks ago in an interview. In response to that interview, UFC President Dana White offered a $50,000 bet out of his own pocket, challenging any of Warren’s fighters to take on any UFC fighter of Warren’s choice.

This Saturday, Dana White and Frank Warren will be special guests on TalkSport Radio in London. TalkSport is going to settle this dispute this Saturday on their show at 9:00 pm London time (1:00 pm on the West Coast).

Will Mr. Warren change his tune, or will he put his money where his mouth is?

We will update you all this weekend after the show!
