"STFU U Crack Head" - Dana White Loses His Head As He Fires Back At De La Hoya Over UFC Pay

Dana White pulled absolutely no punches when responding to Oscar De La Hoya's damming comment regarding UFC fighter pay.


Boxing legend De La Hoya slammed UFC president White over the pay of Alexander Volkanovski, who defended his title against Brian Ortega in a 'Fight of the Year' contender at UFC 266 last weekend.

The Australian star somehow escaped multiple submission attempts to beat the American in their championship clash in Las Vegas.


De La Hoya took to social media to react to the bout, taking aim at White over what he's paying his UFC featherweight king.

He tweeted: "Hey @alexvolkanovski you just won a brutal battle for @ufc and made 1/20 of what you're worth.

"@danawhite have some f**king respect for yourself and these fighters and pay these warriors what they deserve."


White ruthlessly hit back, branding the 48-year-old a 'crackhead' and mocking his withdrawal against Vitor Belfort in a fierce response

He replied: "STFU U crack head. Faking that u had Covid and robbing me of watching u get KTFO by @vitorbelfort you should win an academy award for your hospital performance."


Like White alluded to in his tweet, De La Hoya was scheduled to face Belfort earlier this month.

But he contracted COVID-19, forcing him to pull out - with Evander Holyfield stepping in on short notice.

This isn't the first time White has attacked De La Hoya, who has also previously taken shots at the UFC boss.

The 52-year-old also blocked Georges St-Pierre from fighting 'The Golden Boy' which stoked their rivalry.
