And according to the UFC President, he's also 102-years-old.
Dana White is referring to the latest controversy surrounding boxing, a quick end to the Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz fight that wrapped after Floyd's "Money" shot, which came as Ortiz was trying to kiss and make up following an illegal headbutt, sent his foe crashing to the canvas.
In his post-fight interview, boxing analyst Larry Merchant interrogated Mayweather over the incident and the situation escalated to the point where Merchant was asking for a time machine to go back and "kick his ass."
White tells MMA Fighting it was an "embarrassing" moment for HBO:
"It's my big beef with Merchant for years. These guys get done fighting and he jumps in the ring and just starts saying off-the-wall, weird, rude [expletive] to these guys. Who the hell would want to do an interview with him? It's probably the thing they dread worse than training and cutting weight and everything, is their interview with Larry Merchant. It's ridiculous. I actually thought that [his statement] was very embarrassing for HBO. The guy is senile, he's out of his mind. He's up there berating Floyd, but Floyd can't say anything back to you? You've been disrespecting guys your whole career, and guess what, you can go back 60 years, you're not kicking Floyd's ass, okay? Give me a break. And what's Floyd going to do? A 102-year-old guy just said that to him."
