UFC President Dana White has responded to criticism that the organization is not doing enough to promote the super fight between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski, which will determine the league’s best fighter regardless of weight class.
“This fight is well on its way to becoming one of the top 5 greatest events in the history of the company,” the head of the organization wrote on the social network. “Leave the big guys to me. I love how people who know less than nothing about business give me advice.”
White said over the weekend that the Makhachev-Volkanovski fight was close to breaking the record for ticket sales and pay-per-view in Australia and New Zealand, but could not remember the name of the Russian fighter who will defend the UFC lightweight championship belt. .
Recall that the Russian-Australian title confrontation on February 11 will head the UFC 284 tournament in Perth.
