Dana White Blasts “Cokehead” Oscar De La Hoya For Letting Chuck Liddell Fight; Wants Oscar To Get KO’d (VIDEO)
Not a single soul wanted to see Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz have a 3rd installment of their rivalry, mainly because both fighters were well past their prime and have no business inside an Octagon.
Oscar De La Hoya promoted the fight that had Liddell knocked out in the 1st round and dana White was pissed about it.
For over 10 minutes, White vented about the fight and De La Hoya, calling the retired boxing champion and promoter a “cokehead junkie” who “snorts about 12 pounds of coke in the morning and shows up where they want him to show up.”
“I love Chuck Liddell and I don’t ever want to bad mouth Chuck Liddell,” White said on the “UFC Unfiltered” podcast on Tuesday.
“People even think I’m remotely bad mouthing Chuck Liddell, but the reality is — first of all, I heard last week the cokehead ‘Oscar De La Weirdo’ is talking sh*t that I don’t have any place to tell guys when to retire.”
“First of all, it’s called ‘friendship’ you f*cking cokehead.”
“I’ve been friends with Chuck Liddell for 20 years and the reality is that Chuck Liddell retired when he should have retired. Eight, nine years ago, however long it was. And, Chuck Liddell’s almost 50-years-old and has no business fighting anymore.”
“When I asked Chuck to retire, he didn’t want to either,” White said. “He should have retired when he did and stayed retired. But like the cokehead said, Chuck’s a grown man and can do whatever he wants to do. But that’s when the state of California has to step in and save him from himself.”
White also took issue with De La Hoya saying dollars earned by octagon fighter made him “sick.”
“The problem is Chuck Liddell is a fighter,” White said. “Chuck Liddell loves to fight. That’s his passion. That’s what he loves in life. But there comes a day and age – fighting is a young man’s game.
“And Oscar (expletive) De La Hoya says, ‘Oh, come over to Golden Boy where we respect the fighters,’ and it makes me sick what these fighters were paid and all this (expletive). Out of 14 fights on the card, five bouts were amateur fights, which means he didn’t pay them jack (expletive). And 12 of the professional fighters on the card made less than ($3,000 and $3,000). What the (expletive) are you talking about, you cokehead junkie? And some of the guys on the card made $1,000 and $1,000. And he respects the fighters so much, he couldn’t remember their names at the press conference.
“I hope somebody talks De La Hoya into fighting again. I hope the state of California makes the fight, and I hope he gets knocked out just like Chuck Liddell in the first round. (Expletive) cokehead nutball.”
