POLL: Who would win in a physical confrontation, Dana White or Floyd Mayweather?

We have been featuring the back and forth banter between UFC president Dana White and the camp of professional boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather for the past several days.

Given Dana White’s background in boxing and Jiu Jitsu we wanted to put a fun spin on this ongoing feud and ask you fans who you think takes the win in a fight between the two public figures.

We know that Dana is a man who never backs down from anyone or anything. At one point a few years ago Dana even accepted a fight with his longest reigning 205 pound champion, Tito Ortiz, when the two’s rivalry was at its peak.

It is conceivable that based on his size advantage and grappling experience that Dana White has a legitimate chance in a “No Holds Barred” type of match against Mayweather.

But what do you think? Cast your vote now!

  1. the original steve says:

    dana is waaayyy bigger and stronger and would take him right down

  2. Dick Diaz says:

    floyd mayweather would probably beat Dana in a fight but then all the UFC fighters would jump in like bodyguards lol

  3. deez nuts says:

    lets be real here mayweather would knock his ass out

  4. TrigenicKin says:


  5. david says:

    if it was a street fight floyd would win cause hes black

  6. true mma says:

    Let’s be real, maybe not Dana but a true mma fighter will always beat a boxer in a fight. Mma fighters train all aspects of fighting.

  7. true mma says:

    Like nick Diaz said ” Floyd can’t stop a double leg takedown.”

  8. freedaweed says:


  9. BD says:

    Lets be real here guys Mayweather would destroy Dana any day

    • The One Punch Machine Gun says:

      100% agree floyd is hands down the best boxer even if he is a prick ..dana wouldnt last 30 seconds against floyd but people pick dana because hes actually a nice guy

      • Mick says:

        no they pick dana cause dana probably has an average level of knowledge in grappling and would immediately try some kind of sloppy takedown and just maul money bitch mayweather, tell mayweather to keep cursing off his father, lighting money on fire, fighting his wife in front of his kids, and taking fights nobody wants to see

  10. Yeas says:

    Doubt Mayweather would even put on his gloves for less than a few million. No matter how much he hates Dana.

  11. true mma says:

    Floyd is all bark and no bite, ask pac man. Floyd needs to worry about not dropping the soap in June. He is going to become someone’s bitch in the las Vegas jail. Squeeze them but cheeks tight Floyd…

  12. v says:

    people in here are smoking some good shit to believe dana could beat mayweather……. there’s a reason why mayweather is a world class fighter and dana isn’t….. he could even take out some of the top ufc fighter witch i doubt dana can….

    • TrigenicKin says:

      Mayweather wouldn’t stand a chance against top UFC fighters. Are you retarded? If you need to see how well a boxer does in MMA, might I suggest watching James Toney vs. Randy Couture?

  13. true mma says:

    Top ufc fighter would put Floyd to sleep with a choke or break his ARM with a ARM bar.

  14. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    BEST POLL EVER!!!!!!!!!

    I Dana winning by GOLDBERG SPEAR ATTAAAAAaack!.. Or a phone call to JDS. Enuff said!

    …. In all seriousness though, Mayweather coudn’t take on a wrestler and that’s Dana’s only chance. I am sure Dana is tougher than he looks but in a stand up battle Dana would get his ass shredded. He has a Tae Bo background for Pete’s sake LOL!

  15. Cody says:

    This is retarded, Floyd would knock him silly before he could even think about taking it to the ground. Dumbest poll I’ve ever seen.

  16. Frekklz says:

    I think it wouldn’t take long for FMjr to try and punch Dwhite. Dana would verbally hound him. Probably one of Mayweather’s boys would try get off a 209 slap!

  17. jdubx says:

    rofl, best poll ever

  18. kim willis says:

    I am a black belt in tea kwon do/karate, boxed & judo blue belt and when i got challanged by a pro boxer to a no rule fight, thow i am a good boxer i am not a pro, i did the smart thing, took a good jab n got a hold of him then it was over via throw n submission. U make the call based on common sense…

  19. Steve says:

    Dana white would win, you guys may think he is just an owner but beyond that he is a great fighter and very well trained in BJJ wrestling and he used to box. size is a big deal, that’s why there is weight classes… even as good as Floyd is at boxing he wouldn’t beat even a scrub heavyweight fighter. being that Dana wouldn’t stand with Floyd and that Floyd doesn’t have 1hit ko power Dana would take him down and abuse him

  20. true mma says:

    The only thing retarded is mayweather. He has no respect from any man. The dude hit his wife like if she was pac man. Real men don’t hit women especially the mother of your children.

  21. teddy says:

    are you people for real? we are talking about the world f’n champ vs a fn promoter, are you serious!!!!!? u all need to get SLAPPED

  22. Nick says:

    Floyd would lose because he’s black. The black man never wins.

  23. Nick says:

    Come on guy… Is this a serious question?

    Yes Dana white is bigger, but he would get torn up in about 5 seconds.
    And whoever said that Mayweather doesn’t know any MMA has been reported numerous times that he practices wrestling. Dana is a goober who takes advantage of his fighter, and Mayweather beats his babies mom for cheating on him. Both are pieces of Shiesse

  24. TheReal says:

    everyone taking this post seriously is officially a loser.. get a life. #TYBG

  25. true mma says:

    Floyd knows wrestling yeah fucking right. A high school senior could out wrestle mayweather. Shit even a JV wrestler not even varsity could toss him around the mat.

  26. hexrei says:

    LOL@ the people picking Dana. Dana has no grappling skill, even with his size advantage he couldn’t take Mayweather down reliably, and with Mayweather’s MASSIVE striking advantage I genuinely believe he could KO Dana while up against a cage or on his back. This question is retarded.

  27. slacker says:

    What a stupid blog, but still I can’t resist answering: of course Mayweather would kick Dana’s ass. He would hit him 5 times before Dana could flex a pec.

  28. Dave says:

    Floyd is all of 5 ft 5 inches and 145 lbs one takedown from a squashed bug I think even moderately skilled mma guys with good ground could win the only thinng Floyd is good at is running…

  29. tim says:

    give the fans what they want.. Main event with Pride rules

  30. can wish says:

    Not fare, Dana is a heavyweight. Dana would take him on the street, but a straight up boxing match could be a good fight. Even Tito was scared!!

    • jonsey says:

      hahaha even tito was scared..tito was the most paper chamo of all time,,,chuck fought all the hard fights and tito got easy oppoents..the hardest fight tito had defend his belt was vitor belfort…tito a bitch only lke talking

      • Darren says:

        Tito didnt defend his belt against Vitor, they fought after Tito lost to Randy in what was a very close fight. Although i agree Tito didnt have the hardest fights when he was the champ he has since proved to be a difficult fight for some legit fighters.

    • Dog chapman says:

      Lol ha ha dana taking on floyd ha thats dumber than any thing I said bruddah ha ha size dont play in effect if ones skill set is higher than urs rexkwando 101

  31. kyle says:

    lol id rather dana but hed get ktfo
    side note that photo makes it look like dana has a mad gotee

  32. Action says:

    Dana would boxercise his arse

  33. jdog says:

    why even ask this dumb question? I know Dana has trained in boxing and in MMA but come on guys who the hell thought of this stupid survey anyway?

  34. james says:

    haha dana would check his ass

  35. Carlos says:

    All Dana whit has to do is drill the double leg at least 10x’s and that enough to put him on his back am he’ll tap like art jimmerson did to royce

  36. This is a stupid pole.Dana gets his ass kicked either in the ring or on the streets.You know why?Floyd is a trained fighter.Dana is’nt.Yes Dana has trained in bjj.So what?Floyd would ko Dana before Dana knew what was happening.All those sayin Dana would kick his ass,well i feel sorry for your parents.

  37. kevin gascoigne says:

    stupid thing poll by far. If anyone actually has there heads that far up their ass to believe beaucse of Dana’s “Bjj Practice” he would stand a % of a chance. Is a complete tool.

  38. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Fuck that. I say Dana busts his ass. He just gotta eat a few of those lightening fast punches so he can grab him and put in some dirty work

  39. Diaz Fan says:

    What a bs poll.. Enough of this Pedro, you can do better than this.

  40. Thetude says:

    Floyd would tear dana apart

  41. dlo' says:

    Mayweathet is a world class athlete don’t sleep on him. He can easily learn some takedowm defense skills from a world class wrestler and put any mma fighter on their backs. Unlike most mma fighters Floyd had been fighting and training his whole life he could easily beat any of those guys. Take a young 20 year old fighter like gamboa and give him 3 years of grappling training and see what he would become. Demarcus Davis was a pretty good mma fighter. He even submitted a few guys with guillotines.

    • gil 1 says:

      holy shit, this is the stupidest thing ive ever heard, floyd maywaether can train ttd for a year straight 7 days a week and he will still be put on his back by the lowest ranked fw in the ufc. what a joke of a comment, only a child would say such a thing, hes a skinny little bitch and would easliy be choked out, easily. god forbid he fought jose aldo, one kick and this fight is over, on the streets floyd would lose every time to a professional mma fighter. in the boxing ring he beats everyone, but anywhere else not a chance.

    • Austin says:

      Boxers don’t transition well to MMA. Look at, say, KJ Noons. It’s not as simple as just saying “train grappling”. Boxing leaves you with a lot of bad habits. You think James Toney didn’t train any TDD before he fought Couture? Nah.

      • phace says:

        From the looks of it do you think Toney really trained that hard for that fight? Nah (not that he would have won or anything but we can tell) …. Besides, Dana aint no Randy Couture 😀

  42. Antonio says:

    I’d like to see White smash Floyd’s face, but if there was money involved, my money would be on Floyd.

  43. Moneyteam says:

    You kidding me? Floyd would knock dana out QuickTime

  44. Donnybrook says:

    Dana all day… he’d choke him out and then eat him.

  45. Dog chapman says:

    Bruddah more like dana would call brock to hulk smash floyd bruh

  46. Jiu-Jitsu Is Life says:

    BJ Penn by triangle choke on Dana and americana on Floyd.

  47. SavageStriker says:

    I noticed a lot of mixed comments, so I thought I would add my two cents as well. First of all I think this poll is a hands down deal. Dana White is a big-mouth and a hot-head. He HAS trained in boxing and BJJ, HOWEVER training in a sport and actually doing it are two very different things. Mayweather would win easily. He has the skill set to beat Dana White. I’ve looked into Dana White’s “fighting experience” and he has none, and knows very little about actual fighting. Also, because of that I think he shouldn’t be the President of the UFC. The UFC needs an ACTUAL fighter as President, so that way they can relate better and be fair.

  48. Jujitsu Player says:

    This is by far the dumbest question ever asked on this site…Dana would last about 2 seconds. You have to catch a guy to take him down, does anyone really think Dana could do that. Anyone who really believes he could, I mean really believes, not just fucking around, is a fucking retard.

    • SFVBEAST says:

      its called sliceing the pie you idiots

    • You'reFuknDumb says:

      You are the fucking retard. Dana White is good enough to be Pro at boxing, not to mention he trains Jiu Jitsu as well. Plus Dana is MUCH stronger than Floyd…. “You have to catch a guy to take him down” <- Are you saying that Mayweather RUNS from all his opponents? You got that right. BTW, you spelled "Jiu Jitsu" wrong in your name, retard.

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        You fucking retard you show you know fuck all about anything. You total fuckwit. Dana would get knocked the fuck out, I’m saying Mayweather would evade Dana whites fat sloppy takedown attempt and land one punch and it’s lights out. Did he fuck have a chance at turning pro as a boxer, he was an aerobics instructor. You’re fucking deluded. And yes that is how you spell Jujitsu you piece of shit.

  49. It Doesn't Matter What My Name Is!! says:

    First Dana takes Floyd down with a double leg because Floyd can’t defend the double leg. He continues with some GnP until Floyd’s manager and trainer/uncle attack Dana at the same time. Then Frank and Lorenzo appear out of nowhere with the steel chair and cracks them across the head with it. While Dana is recovering from being jumped, Floyd cheap shots Dana with a 2 piece and knocks him down but Dana’s fat head allows him to absorb most of the blows. Floyd Jumps on top and tries to punch Dana but he catches Floyd and a triangle and chokes him unconscious. As Dana then walks away, one of Floyd’s body guards charges at Dana when out of nowhere comes Chael Sonnen who suplexes the guy and then stone cold stunners him after he gets back up. Chael then runs in search of Anderson Silva for banging his wife. This makes our winner and STILL THE UFC PRESIDNENT! DANAAA WHITE!!

    oh shit.. i didnt… welll… i did 😀

  51. Xaninho says:

    Carraway was one of the Ewoks in Star Wars.

  52. BobO says:

    She has bigger arms than that wormy dude has. ~BobO

  53. BobO says:

    Rousey has bigger arms than that wormy dude has. ~BobO

  54. watchafightbeforecommenting says:

    In addition… Dana has never trashed women’s MMA. He said there is not enough good women fighters to have a division, which is still a fact! Rousey is good, Tate is good, Carano made a huge impact, but still she isn’t even around the MMA scene right now… You want a division with 4 decent women in it so they can trade the title back and forth? I sure don’t! I appreciate women getting into the sport, but until they have a variety of up-and-comers and talented fighters, keep them in strikeforce for the rare good challenges.
