Dana White *really* enjoyed Jeff Horn’s upset of Manny Pacquiao

Uncle Dana had a message for Bob Arum

Dana White doesn’t exactly get along with boxing promoters.

The UFC president had choice words for Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya recently, hitting back at De La Hoya’s criticism of the upcoming McGregor vs. Mayweather super-fight.

White’s disdain for De La Hoya, however, pales in comparison to the contempt he has for Top Rank boss, Bob Arum.

Time and time again, White has taken opportunities to throw shade in Arum’s direction and the notoriously confrontational UFC president was not going to pass up the chance to take a swipe on Saturday night.

Manny Pacquiao remains the most high-profile name on Top Rank’s books and when the Filipino legend fell victim to a controversial decision this weekend, White had a message for Arum.

Pacquiao had agreed to travel to Australia to take on unheralded Aussie fighter, Jeff Horn, and, as happens so often in boxing, the hometown fighter received the nod on the judges’ scorecards.

The WBO welterweight title switched hands, much to the shock of the boxing community, and, ever the opportunist, White took to Instagram to take a dig at Arum.

“Bob Arum= the DUMBEST MOTHER FUCKER in boxing history!!!!!!!!!!” White wrote on Instagram after he’d congratulated Horn on the upset.
