We wanted to root for Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotion’s first MMA card but we just can’t. This whole event is a giant comet crashing to earth on Saturday night and we can’t look away.
Oscar De La Hoya has no idea what the hell he’s doing and its starting to show. Maybe the idea of Chuck Liddell versus Tito Ortiz in 2018 could work with the right machine behind it. Oscar attempts at promoting MMA has proven he’s not a machine but a complete tool.
Chuck versus Tito part three was always going to be a uphill climb, but Oscar is trying to scale to the mountain top with a cardboard box firmly planted on his head. Besides slow tickets sales, an underwhelming under card and general lack of knowledge of the sport, our Uncle Oscar made a complete jackass of himself at the final press event.
Take 90 seconds out this Holiday season and watch Oscar open yesterday’s (Nov. 20) press conference.
That feeling when you show up to work way too high. When you have to do a class presentation with zero prep work.The rare scenario where you are tasked to give a eulogy for a dead guy you didn’t even know.
The three scenarios above are the only way you could describe what the hell Oscar De La Hoya was trying to say about Chuck vs. Tito.
There was also this. Whatever this was.
Is promoting MMA really that difficult? An early rest in peace shout out to the soon to be dead MMA branch of Golden Boy Promotions. You will be missed only for the fact this entire event is going to be a giant cluster fuck.
