- Dana White slapped up-and-coming group Triller for complaining about him
- The UFC president denied Georges St-Pierre the opportunity to fight a boxing fight
- The retired Canadian MMA star wanted to record Oscar de la Hoya later this year

Dana White went on a violent rant against streaming service Triller after UFC president Georges St-Pierre denied the opportunity to fight boxer Oscar de la Hoya.
Triller CEO Ryan Kavanaugh revealed this week that UFC star St-Pierre shouldn’t face De la Hoya, who hasn’t fought since losing to Manny Pacquiao in 2008.
Kavanaugh revealed that he has tried to get in touch with UFC supremo White, who in turn lashed out at the American businessman and video social networking group, describing them as idiots.

White, 51, said at the UFC 262 press conference after the fight, “Don’t even ask me about these idiots. Who gives as ***? Does anybody scare like that? You do? I don’t care what they think. Do you think I care what Triller thinks?
‘I don’t even take their calls. This idiot calls me every day. He calls me every day, “Please answer my call. Please talk to me. Why don’t you talk to me? ‘Cause I don’t care about you. Do your thing. Leave me alone. Go do f ****** whatever you do. Knock yourself out.
‘I could not care less. I’m not interested in talking to any of those idiots. They can do their thing. Do your thing. Stop talking about me. What the hell are you giving to what I’m doing? Go do your thing. ‘
White has claimed he doesn’t care about Triller’s recent complaints about him

Triller helped run the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren crossover fight earlier this year and will host the lightweight world title fight between Teofimo Lopez and mandatory challenger George Kambosos.
Meanwhile, St-Pierre retired from MMA in February 2019, but he trained at the Wild Boxing Club in Los Angeles last month with American boxing trainer Freddie Roach.
Triller director Kavanaugh slammed White for not allowing the Canadian MMA star to participate in a crossover match, which would have been a “ big payday ” for him.
Kavanaugh wrote on Instagram last week: ‘(Dana White and UFC) have just blocked Georges St-Pierre from fighting Oscar De La Hoya. It’s a big payday for GSP and both he and Oscar’s dream of fighting each other. Dana would rather hold back those who put down the UFC, and why?

I tried calling and texting Dana at least five times to make it work for both parties, not even courtesy of a phone call. And he’s trying to get Jake Paul to fight for the UFC right now? Make him offers? Just hurt its own people and haunt ours. ‘
But White continued his rant against Kavanaugh and Triller, telling the emerging social media group to “get lost.”
The UFC president added: ‘What are you doing? What do I have to do with it? What do I have to do with it or my boys? Do your thing. What are you doing? Are you starting an MMA organization?
‘F ****** go away. Go do what you do. Stop texting me. Stop calling me. Stop f * cking asking the media to ask me things, okay? Go away. Get lost. ‘
