Dana White: If boxing wants to go head to head with Masvidal vs. Diaz, they're nuts!

  • Published on Sep 24, 2019
  • Saturday, Nov. 2, is going to be a monster night for combat sports. Not only does UFC 244 feature Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz at Madison Square Garden in New York, but boxing great Canelo Alvarez will square off with Sergey Kovalev on the same night.
    UFC 244 takes place on ESPN+ PPV, while Alvarez vs. Kovalev is on the DAZN subscription-based app.
    UFC president Dana White says that Masvidal vs. Diaz is trending to be one of the biggest PPV's in the company's history, so he certainly thinks DAZN is crazy for putting Canelo vs. Kovalev up against the UFC.

    Dana is out of his mind, boxing is popular world wide and UFC is very popular but only in a few major size countries. The Boxing promotor should shut dana up by just making him a public bet on who has a bigger gate and who has a larger televised viewers count. Then watch Dana back peddle and say that is not what he said and ment, A page right out of his idols play book Trump, say it and if you get called out denies it

    Again and again, DIAZ and MASVIDAL are both greatest fighter's, so, will see, and stop the talking.

    All u are crazy that think boxing is dying. 12 round of brain damage sure does fill in them seats vs 4 rounds of 50/50 grappling and brutal kicks and punches and elbows.I Still think boxing is more dangerous thats why there a bigger audience

    • Y BENCH

      @JR Bonilla it was conveniant for boxing that's all, the ufc was ok to be head to head with boxing, they didnt change the hour of start, the boxing changed. It was embarrassing watching canelo lying on a sofa wainting for diaz ending his fight. ( plus they got destroyed in popularity too )

    • JR Bonilla
      JR Bonilla 15 days ago

      @Y BENCH No it was convenient for both boxing and ufc fans. Fan got to see both fights.

    • Y BENCH

      @JR Bonilla lol the biggest star of the sport had to wait for two MMA journey men to stop their fight before getting started, that was embarrassing for boxing ...

    Canelo will beat you dana. I like nate vs masvidal, but its very overhyped. This bullshit with the rock and all is cringe. It cant compete with canelo alvarez. I may be totally wrong, but thats my opinion of it.

    I feel sorry for dana. Canelo is not even worrying about the UFC being in the same night. Since he knows 1 million plus people will tune in to watch him in the USA. And over 34 million in Mexico. While Dana might get the 1.2 million the usual fight gets or less since he is competing with canelo and rising star Ryan Garcia who boast a big following.
    Thank god I have two tvs in my room and multiple consoles to watch both fights. But sadly one show is going to be overshadowed by the other. And I have a feeling it’s going to be the UFC who has a huge dream match going on.

    • Y BENCH

      lol they had to wait for UFC to end to start fighting : PATHETIC

      The Canelo fight was pushed to be after the Nate Diaz vs Masvidal because they didn't wanted to compete directly with the UFC.

      Here I’ll accept it if Diaz vs Masdival does better the canelo vs kovalev. I think that’s fair. Since according to you boxing is dead.

      @Lex Loadgiver ..you have no idea non boxing champs make more money than a champion ufc fighter, boxing is more dangerous then ufc ask McGregor he had to get check ups for headaches 3 weeks after Mayweather fight still had problems (FACT).boxing will never die out any sport that's at the Olympics will always continue. Believe me Dana will be watching Canelo

  • Vincent Kennedy McMahon

    The funny thing is tho Dana will be paying his fighters peanuts and Canelo and Kovalev will be making multiple millions no matter what the fight lol that’s the difference

      @GOKU69 Conor mcgregor made more money in one boxing fight than he ever made in his entire UFC career

    • AttaxiaFFXI
      AttaxiaFFXI Month ago

      They are different sports with different business models. You can say that Boxers earn more in one fight which is true but the big money fights are much further apart so you can charge more money for them (which obviously translates to fighter pay).

      @Darchenko it doesn’t matter actually since the first UFC event was held in 1993 while boxing has been around since the 1940s where they really started gaining traction. The sport of MMA wasn’t popular until the UFC held its first event. It makes a difference. You can’t compare the pay of UFC and the pay of boxing when boxing has been around for so much longer. Look at each sports pay in regards to how much time they’ve been in the public’s eye.

      Yeah and the first wrestler to come by would ground and pound his zero grappling skills and choke him out & take his belt mcgregor is a tap machine quitter simple as that he's lost all 4 times by way of submission for those silly mcgregor/mma casual bitches that don't know thats what khabib did to mcgregor. 😂

      @Juan Z if you think Colby's belt that he won off RDA (great fighter but truly just a lightweight) is legit then your are sadly mistaken. Colby is a bum and will get exposed by the next top guy he has to face

    Canelo vs Kov is a hell of a fight either way you want to put it & involves a lot more skills than the ufc fight but
    Masvidal vs Diaz is a barn burner

      @Game Bred
      You're the moron kid.
      Give me legit reasons why boxing is harder, and I'll demolish your comment with why MMA is harder.
      Its doesn't take a genius to know why MMA is harder to compete in than boxing. I'll wait for your reply kid 😎👍

      You’re a moron kid. Doing this whole mma vs boxing thing. Rumble Johnson is a bum & comparing his power to some of the hardest hitting/greatest boxers in history is laughable & shows you have no logic to what you are saying. You’re just a mma fanboy.
      I love both sports. I respect both sports. I train both sports but I’m not going to give some half ass bullshit bias answer because I support one over the other. Boxing requires more skills and that’s just a fact. When Jorge, Nate, Conor, Dustin, Justin, Tony, Khabib, Colby, Leon Scott, Rda or anyone from the 155 to 170 weight class can stand straight in front of someone like Sergey Kovalev, in striking range, without getting hit lmk.

      I rather watch a real fight that incorporates all forms of fighting, not just a boring punching only contest. Diaz vs. Masvidal will have it all - punches, kicks, knees, elbows etc. it is going to be insane!
