Dana White reacts to the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight booking

Fernando Quiles - March 10, 2024

UFC CEO Dana White has given his take on the announced boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson. Tyson is a legend of the sweet science, but he will be 58 years old when he steps inside the ring with the 27-year-old Paul in an event that will air  on Netflix. While no boxing expert believes Paul is a great prospect, his knockout power has long been proven and that could mean disaster for the far older Tyson on July 20. Some fight fans are having flashbacks to the 2021 boxing match between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort, which saw “The Phenom” stop Holyfield, who was approaching 59 years old at the time, in the first round.

Dana White reflects on failed boxing match against Tito Ortiz: "He knows I would've beat the s*it out of him"

Josh Evanoff - February 27, 2024

UFC President Dana White has zero doubt how a boxing match with Tito Ortiz would’ve gone. The rivalry between the promoter and ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ is the stuff of legend. While Dana White was first the manager of Tito Ortiz, he eventually fell into a role as the leader, and face of the UFC. Not long after that, the two began feuding, and wouldn’t stop for two decades.
