Eddie Hearn Says He’s A Big Fan Of Dana White
With Dana White recently saying that he’s going to make big moves into the world of boxing after the summer, you may think that he and Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn may look at each other as rivals. But that certainly doesn’t appear to be the case.
Just a few days ago, the UFC President posted a picture of the two of them together at the UFC Performance Institute, in Las Vegas.
Now Hearn has spoken to The Sports Daily about his time with White earlier this week, stating that he’s a big fan of Dana and the UFC business model.
“I’m a massive Dana White fan. I don’t want to sound like a fanboy but I have massive respect for what the UFC have done. In fact, I’ll be honest, a lot of things we do are based around the success of what the UFC have done. So I went over, introduced myself to him, we spoke. And he was like ‘oh wow’. He had the courtesy to take me to his other building across the road where they’re going to be doing live shows. Listen, him and the UFC business is hugely motivational to what I do.”
Hearn also spoke to the infamous Schmo about his meeting with White. Where he again showed his admiration for Dana and the UFC.
Could we see the UFC and Matchroom Sport team up in the future?
