UFC President Dana White is notorious when it comes to cancelling big money matches for no reason. This is exactly what he did when White prevented UFC legend Georges St-Pierre from fighting boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya at Triller Club. This is due to the fact that St-Pierre is under contract with the UFC.
Oscar De La Hoya was certainly furious at the announcement and so were many other people. This included the likes of UFC legend Anderson Silva, who blasted Dana White for cancelling the huge match.
It came to such a point that Oscar De La Hoya even challenged UFC president Dana White to a fight. Now it seems another UFC legend has stepped up and revealed his interest in fighting Oscar De La Hoya in a boxing match.
Three-time UFC title challenger and MMA veteran Chael Sonnen took to Twitter and revealed that he happens to “be free” the day Oscar De La Hoya plans to make a return to the boxing world.
”I saw the date of that proposed fight Oscar, I checked my calendar – I happen to be free.”
While it was initially revealed that de La Hoya was going to make his return on July 3 to compete on Triller, reports stated that his return has been postponed. We certainly wonder if De La Hoya will end up fighting against Chael Sonnen as that would be a very interesting matchup, to say the least.
