UFC President Dana White continued to blast Top Rank boxing promoter, Bob Arum.
Over the weekend, Terence Crawford defended his WBO welterweight title with a fourth-round TKO win over Kell Brook. However, after the fight, Arum slammed Crawford for not promoting himself and saying he is going bankrupt promoting his fights and could’ve built a house in Beverly Hills with all the money he lost on Crawford.
Dana White was not a fan of those remarks.

“I didn’t see how that whole thing played out but I heard Bob Arum, f*****g little b***h crying about it,” Dana White said after the Contender Series. “F**k him, I had to throw that in there, I f*****g hate that guy.”
For Dana White, he could only imagine the backlash he would get if he was the one saying those comments. So, the UFC bossman also shared some advice for Bob Arum.
“Can you imagine if I said that?. Are you f*****g kidding me? You guys would murder me if I said that. I’d never hear the end of that. That’s what you do. That’s not his f*****g problem, that’s your problem. His problem isn’t to figure out how you make money. You f*****g signed a deal with this kid, your job is to promote him. You made a deal. All these kids I signed, if you look at all these kids we’ve signed and at how many people we have on the roster, our roster is very inflated right now. We have a very big roster, the biggest roster we’ve ever had in the history of the company. I have to pay all these kids. How I pay them is not their f*****g problem. It’s my f*****g problem. Imagine me saying ‘oh, I gotta pay Conor McGregor this much money, I could have built a house in Beverly Hills.’ Shut the f**k up, you f*****g scumbag. Pay your f*****g fighter what you owe him, that’s your job Bob Arum is a piece of f*****g piece of s**t. Good night everybody”
