UFC president Dana White recently addressed celebrity boxing matches and how celebrity boxing has grabbed the limelight in the fight game as of late.
Dana White spoke about the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul ‘super exhibition’ boxing match in particular. In the aftermath of this match, White told UFC Arabia:
"Last night? Oh come on, that was no f***ing boxing match. Like I said before man, there's always gonna be a market for that kind of stuff. There's always gonna be people that are willing to put down fifty bucks to watch that kind of stuff. That's just so far away from what I....imagine...think about this, imagine if Kim Kardashian wanted to fight Amanda Nunes, how big do you think that fight would be? It's huge, it would be the biggest event. But give a f***ing break."
Dana White indicated that a fight between Amanda Nunes and Kim Kardashian would captivate fans in the combat sports world and pop culture realm in general. White believes that the fight would generate millions of dollars in revenue. He added, however, that the UFC isn’t interested in a freak matchup of this sort.
