Dana thinks Tom Atencio needs to get back to work

Dana White has responded to Tom Atencio’s challenge for a fight, and he’s about as civil as you’d imagine a man would be when a rival is trying to score public potshot points off him:

“At the end of the day, I stepped up and said I would fight Tito and he was a fighter who people cared about,” White said. “But why would I fight this goof? He’s neither a fighter nor a promoter. He’s a fuckin’ loser. That’s all he is.”

“Let me tell you something: When I was $44 million in the hole, the last thing I was doing was leaving the office and going out to train for a joke of a fight. I was in the office and trying to find a way to make this thing work.

“Why would I waste one second of my second of my day worrying about this fuckin’ guy? He should be worried about the millions and millions of his bosses, or his partners’ money, whoever it is, that’s he’s burning. That’s a complete joke.”

Let’s face it: if Tom Atencio was the Dana White of Affliction and he’s responsible for signing all those insane fighter contracts, then perhaps it’s best he’s off training while others try to sort out the mess he’s made. However you cut it, fighter pay is at the crux of Affliction’s problems. Either it’s going to kill them or they suck it up and hold on until all the retarded deals are done. No matter how much or little time Tom Atencio spends in the office, the path has already been set for Affliction.
