Dana White: Why anyone would buy Bellator is besides me
“Why on God’s green f*cking Earth would anybody buy Bellator?” White told MMA Junkie and other reporters. “So what we were just talking about, business and making the right moves and right decisions, there’s been lots of bad ones.
Bellator would be one of the f*cking biggest. “Why anyone would buy Bellator is besides me. But hey, what do I know? I’ll sit back and see how this plays out. I’m excited. … Bellator is $500 million? Awesome, sounds like a steal.
Sounds like a f*cking steal. Buy that thing quick before – who else does? Come on, guys. This is f*cking silly – silly”. as quoted by MMAJunkie. Dana White said that the PFL exists and that they have always been fair and square rivals.
He admires their way of running the organization and has no jealousy towards that organization at all. Although the leaders of PFL and Bellator admitted that they had a verbal agreement regarding the merger of these two organizations, nothing is official yet.
“There’s one of two things in that,” White said. “There’s either a lot of delusion or he’s uninformed. Almost everything in that statement is incorrect except for what happens in the cage determines your future.
I think that’s the only right thing that he said. And you know what? Good for him. Get out there. F*cking let’s fire it up. Let’s whatever. It’s all good. I’ve said this before about the PFL. I have no beef with those guys.
Those guys have always been standup guys and have always been classy when it comes to the business. These guys are in this to compete with us and I respect that”.
