UFC President Dana White is an avid fan of boxing. Now the UFC executive is looking to bring the sport under the umbrella of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Speaking to ESPN, Dana White revealed that he is already setting things in motion to get Zuffa boxing inside the squared circle.
“I had a meeting in LA yesterday. We are continuing to move forward, and we will absolutely, positively be in the boxing business.”
“Soon. I just bought the building next door here. We’re building a $12 million facility. We’ll basically have our own arena. We’ll be able to put fights right here next door and air them live anywhere in the world. I can do MMA fights, I can do boxing, I can do kickboxing, I can do jiu-jitsu, I can do all kinds of different fights and tournaments. We’re going to do a lot of things.”
“If you know how I run my business and what I like, yes I want all the best boxers in the world. I want them all to fight each other and find out who the real champ is. That’s what we’re going to do.”
