- Dana White insulted PFL and Bellator over agreeing to merge
- PFL is confident they can now be co-leaders with the UFC in the sport
UFC president Dana White doesn’t have a lot to say about PFL’s recent acquisition of Bellator. In fact, White was just laughing at the entire idea.
A sh*tty organization merger
Speaking to the media in his UFC Austin post-fight presser, White commented on the subject in typical fashion. White alluded that the merger is news but PFL will never be on the level of the UFC in terms of competition like what PFL CEO Donn Davis was claiming.
“You want me to comment? It’s f**king hilarious,” White enthusiastically said. “But good for them. I wish them all the luck in the world. I’ve covered this before, you must not have heard it. One sh*tty organization that sells no tickets and nobody watches buys another sh*tty organization that sells no tickets and nobody watches. Sounds like a f**king winner to me, boy.”

PFL got some big names, though
It can be recalled that Davis stated that PFL will be the co-leader of the UFC in the sport. Indeed, it sounded a bit farfetched. However, PFL has signed and booked a couple of undeniably massive bouts.
Aside from the highly-anticipated PFL debut of former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Nganou, As for Jake Paul, PFL is looking to book the YouTuber-turned-boxing star in a rematch with Nate Diaz, but nothing is concrete at this point about the fight.
PFL is also gonna be working on a showdown between Bellator women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and former PFL champ Kayla Harrison.
