UFC president Dana White and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya have been at it for a while now.
Recently Dana White went all in on Oscar, calling him Oscar de La Cokehead.

Now the war wages on.
UFC Boss Dana White reached out to Yahoo Sports on Wednesday to point out what he said were numerous inaccuracies in comments that De La Hoya has made about him recently, including some on ESPN’s “First Take” with Stephen A. Smith.
Dana’s responded to those allegations:
“The guy wants to act like he’s my competitor [promoting MMA],” White told Yahoo Sports. “I have a real business that I’ve built over the last 18 years. A real business, and I can hit you with numbers for days about [how successful it is]. How much has Oscar De La Hoya reinvested into the sport of boxing? We’ve reinvested millions and millions of dollars and we continue to do it every day. The list goes on and on.
“The guy wants to come out and tell lies and say things that make no sense when he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He knows nothing about this sport. He doesn’t know the [expletive] guys’ names who are fighting on his card. He’s a liar. He’s a phony and God help anybody who wants to go fight for Golden Boy. These fighters are grown men and women. All they have to do is take one meeting with Oscar De La Hoya and they’ll see what he knows about MMA, which is absolutely [expletive] nothing.”
De La Hoya and Ortiz both declined to comment.
This feud is going to get even uglier.
