Oscar De La Hoya Challenges Dana White To Fight, He Accepts Under One Condition

Oscar De La Hoya has challenged Dana White to a fight, and he's actually accepted but under one condition.

Oscar De La Hoya and Dana White's feud has peaked. The two combat sport personalities have been exchanging words ever since the Golden Boy promoter dabbled into MMA.

He promoted Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz III to the frustration of White.

The UFC president is now ready to settle his feud with De La Hoya in the form of a fight. Yes, a fight.

De La Hoya's called out White and he's accepted. Though 'not boxing'.

"Let's get in the ring. Let's get in the ring, three rounds. Let's do this," the former six-weight world champion said.

"Let's do this under Canelo, Cinco de Mayo. I'll even give you five months so you can get off the juice, and then we can get in great shape and then we go three rounds.

"Look, I'm going to give you what, a 50 pound advantage? It's ok. I can take you on. Let's do it."

White's responded by slating De La Hoya before laying out his stipulation.

"Listen Oscar called me out. He's an idiot," he said.

"When you're a moron like he is, you have to fight. Yeah I'll fight Oscar De La Hoya. Not boxing though. Not boxing. Normally when these types of challenges go out, I say 'I'll box him.' I'm not boxing Oscar De La Hoya."

Smart move. You wouldn't want to box De La Hoya. This is, after all, an Olympic gold-medalist and a multiple-weight world champion.

De La Hoya vs. White - who's your money on?
