“#Dana White-Dan Le Batard bad blood didn’t stop with heated interview”

The 50-year-old UFC president has accepted a challenge from ESPN personality Dan Le Batard, 51, to a charity fight, with White agreeing to donate $250,000 to the cause. Following a heated interview with White over the low-percentage payouts given to UFC fighters, Le Batard’s co-host, “Stugotz,” asked when White and Le Batard would fight.
Le Batard appeared to jokingly extend the challenge, though White may be calling his bluff, with the substantial pledge to a charity for the fight to take place.
“Dan Le Batard is a big mouth. He’s all talk and no action,” White said on ESPN. “I can promise you if he’s even remotely serious it ends very badly for him. But, Dan Le Batard, if you are serious, I’ll put up $250,000 for whatever charity we come up with and we can do it, pal.”
Like so many fighters, Le Batard is apparently holding out for more money.
“Counter offer on radio next week. He can’t bully the negotiations with his BS low first offer. I’m not one of the many fighters he likes to underpay,” Le Batard tweeted.
The bout was initially Le Batard’s idea.
“I would like to fight you though,” Le Batard said. “How do you think that would end up going, you and me? Can we do that for charity? Can we raise a bunch of money for charity?
“I’ve got about 80 pounds on you, White. About 80 pounds. And your weight fluctuates. You are also a weight fluctuater, so I don’t know what kind of shape you’re in, but what I’m telling you is I’m going to get in shape. Let’s raise some money for charity. Give me a straight answer: Are you and I going to fight for an enormous amount of money?”
White quickly replied.
“Hell yes!” White said. “Absolutely. It ends very badly for you. Very badly, that I promise.”
