You just knew Dana White wasn’t going to sit around and listen to one of his fighters get disrespected.
It was just earlier this week when Paul dissed UFC two-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes when she said she would gladly take him on in a fight.
Nah, I wouldn’t fight her,” “Waste of time. No one knows who she is.”
She’s the greatest, but she’s got one million followers on Instagram, s—ty engagement,” “There’s not a lot of hype there. Plus, there’s no history. I wanna knock out Dilon because we’ve been talkin’ s—t back and forth for two years, I’ve hooked up with his girlfriend, he’s all butt-hurt about it. There’s history there. And Dillon is Conor’s best friend, and I ultimately want Conor. So why would I waste my time doing some bulls—t s—t like that?”
The UFC President blasted the former Youtuber for his comments.

“Amanda Nunes will knock that kid out, “To even think about that guy fighting, he’s like, ‘I’m never going to fight a woman.’ You shouldn’t. You shouldn’t because she’ll put you in a coma. That guy is just some kid off the street. One of the big problems with him right now, he’s lucky there’s a pandemic. He’s talking smack about real people – real people that he could run into at a restaurant some night and things like that. This isn’t a real guy. This is just some kid on YouTube.”
“It’s all a big gimmick. Like I said in a (recent) press conference, there’s a market for that. If people are dumb enough to spend their money watching that (expletive), I don’t know what to tell you. Good luck to them. I (couldn’t) care less what that guy (does). I get it. He’s trying to make some money and is doing his thing. There are people who want to spend money on that. I’m not that guy.”
