Dana White is furious after hearing rumors about Pat Miletich saying that; 'UFC told Khamzat [Chimaev] not to make weight because we weren't selling tickets.' “I heard this thing today, and I don’t know how true it is — Pat Miletich was saying we told Khamzat [Chimaev] not to make weight because we weren’t selling tickets.
The f****** show was sold out going into that day of the weigh-ins." . he said, as quoted by mmafighting.com White is disappointed by his statement and can't believe he actually said it. “I don’t know if Pat really said that, but if he did, he has to be the dumbest motherf***** on the planet.
I mean, you know how f****** stupid you have to be to even think something like that, let alone say it publicly and act like you’re f****** serious. We’re regulated by the athletic commission, and if you think we told Khamzat Chimaev to not make weight, then Khamzat shows up and the fans are all pissed off at him and stuff, and he’s going to just...if you know anything about the sport, this is a guy that was actually in the sport, training and fighting and everything else.
If Pat really said that, holy s***, we might have to send him to the out f****** clinic, the brain clinic, to get him checked out”.
Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva
On the other hand, one of the people who often call out Dana White, Jake Paul, is preparing for a big match against Anderson Silva.
Paul considers this the biggest match of his career and there are great expectations from him. Many wonders if he can really overcome this obstacle. Anderson is a dangerous fighter who can cause big problems for Jake. “I do think so, I think this could be the biggest payday of his career,” Paul said.
“Just because this is like my first big fight. As crazy as that sounds, all the other fights have been like, decent, but this is the first big, big fight, with another massive name who brings a ton of business to the table.
Tyron Woodley never really sold that many pay-per-views. Ben Askren didn’t sell any PPVs. Nate Robinson never fought. [AnEsonGib] doesn’t sell PPVs – the stadium was empty when Gib fought. So this is the first time I’m fighting someone who brings just as much to the table as I do”.
