Last year, UFC president Dana White declared that he would be getting into the world of boxing promotion, forming “Zuffa Boxing” and he might be starting soon.
“I had a meeting in LA yesterday. We are continuing to move forward, and we will absolutely, positively be in the boxing business,” White said.
“Soon,” White replied when asked about a timeframe. “I just bought the building next door here. We’re building a $12 million facility. We’ll basically have our own arena. We’ll be able to put fights right here next door and air them live anywhere in the world. I can do MMA fights, I can do boxing, I can do kickboxing, I can do jiu-jitsu, I can do all kinds of different fights and tournaments. We’re going to do a lot of things.”
“If you know how I run my business and what I like, yes I want all the best boxers in the world,” White said. “I want them all to fight each other and find out who the real champ is. That’s what we’re going to do.”
