Oscar De La Hoya I’d Beat Dana White’s Ass … If We Actually Fight!

EXCLUSIVE

The Dana White vs. Oscar De La Hoya feud is exploding — but how would things go down if they settled their differences in the ring? 

Oscar has some thoughts … “I would beat his ass.”‘

The two have been at each other’s throats ever since White announced the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight back in June 2017.

Oscar put out a statement calling it a “circus” and said it would hurt the sport of boxing. Dana didn’t appreciate that and blasted him as a lying, stupid “cokehead.”

In fact, White went on ESPN’s “First Take” on Thursday and went scorched Earth on the boxing legend — even challenging him to a face-to-face showdown. 

Well, we got Oscar earlier this week in New York and while he jokingly offered Dana a big ol’ kiss for the holidays … De La Hoya said if the two ever came to blows, it wouldn’t even be a close fight.

UFC’s Rachael Ostovich ‘Totally Cool’ Fighting on Same Card as Greg Hardy … Says Dana White

Breaking News

Dana White says Rachael Ostovich is “totally cool” fighting on the same card as Greg Hardy in January … despite his history with domestic violence. 

There’s been backlash over the decision to put Hardy on the Jan. 19 card considering Ostovich was JUST involved in a D.V. incident last month — and claims she suffered bad injuries at the hands of her MMA fighter husband

But, Dana White appeared on TSN in Canada early Thursday morning and addressed the issue head-on — saying he will NOT move Hardy off the card … and that Ostovich has “no problem” with the decision. 

White explained that Hardy will be tied to the domestic violence allegations for the rest of his life — but he’s put in the work to rehabilitate himself and White feels he’s a changed man who deserves a 2nd chance. 

White says during his conversation with Ostovich, Rachael told him, “[Greg’s] story is not my story and I believe in second chances.”

Dana says having Rachael’s support was a “key factor” in making the decision to keep Hardy on the card. 

Ostovich will Paige VanZant that night. Hardy will square off against Allen Crowder.

UFC’s Kamaru Usman Dana Offered Me Colby Covington … But He’s Scared Of Me!!

EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Kamaru Usman says Dana White offered him a fight with Colby Covington next month … and he’s waiting on Donald Trump‘s favorite fighter to sign the contract. 

Both fighters have been dying to get a shot at the welterweight champ Tyron Woodley — and it seems the winner of the proposed January 19 bout would get their wish.

TMZ Sports talked to Usman … who tells us Dana called this week and made the offer.

Kamaru ain’t exactly confident the fight will actually happen … saying Colby has refused to accept the match on 4 other occasions in the past.

So yeah, Kamaru and Colby hate each other … and straight-up, Usman says Covington is scared.

If he accepts, Usman vs. Covington would join a bunch of solid fights on the first UFC event on ESPN — including Paige VanZant vs. Rachael Ostovich and Greg Hardy vs. Allen Crowder

Usman just dominated Rafael dos Anjos when they clashed on Saturday night at “The Ultimate Fighter” finale. 

Covington’s last fight was also against RDA — Colby scored the “W” in a 5-round decision at UFC 225 back in June. 

After the fight, Colby underwent surgery to correct a nasal issue. He visited Trump at the White House in August and took a pic with POTUS while Donald held the UFC interim welterweight championship belt over his shoulder.

We reached out to Covington for comment … so far, no word back.

Dana White Rips ‘Cokehead’ Oscar De La Hoya for Letting Chuck Liddell Fight

Breaking News

Dana White just went scorched Earth on Oscar De La Hoya — blasting the head of Golden Boy Promotions as a “f*cking cokehead” who irresponsibly let Chuck Liddell fight Tito Ortiz this past weekend. 

“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.”

“The fact that the state of California even let that fight happen is disgusting. Disgusting.”

He continued … “Chuck Liddell has an incredible legacy. He’s a huge superstar in this sport, so of course as a friend, anybody who claims to be a friend of Chuck Liddell and was anywhere near this fight is full of sh*t. They’re not a friend of Chuck Liddell. To let him go in and fight this fight is terrible.”

Of course, Chuck was knocked out in the 1st round of his fight with Ortiz — and after the bout, he told TMZ Sports he’s not sure if he’ll step in the cage again. 

Clearly, he knows how Dana feels about the situation … 

Dana and Oscar have been publicly feuding for a while — ever since Oscar blasted Dana for the Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match. 

Oscar said the fight could kill the sport of boxing. 

White responded by calling Oscar a “two-faced” jerk

Dana White Cormier’s Team Wants Him To Retire I Want Him To Fight Jones

EXCLUSIVE

Dana White wants to put Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier in the Octagon and lock the door … but DC’s people don’t want him to fight “Bones” — they want him to retire.

TMZ Sports talked to the UFC honcho outside the Montage in L.A. … and asked him for the lowdown on the DC and Brock Lesnar fight.

Dana told us he ain’t sure if the Lesnar fight will happen … but he does have a massive fight in mind.

Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier III.

“I’d obviously like to see Jones and Cormier fight again at heavyweight,” White tells us … “Cormier’s team wants him to retire now. They want him to retire right now. I hope we can get 3 more fights out of him.”

Remember, DC’s repeatedly said he’s gonna retire on his 40th birthday — but that’s still 4 months away — and walking away before was seemingly never an option … ‘til now.

We also talked to Dana about Yair Rodriguez‘s INSANE last-second KO of the Korean Zombie … and White says there’s never been a better finish — in MMA, boxing or anywhere else people hit each other.

“I think it’s the best knockout in combat sports history. All of combat sports.”
