UFC President Dana White tells 'racist' Floyd Mayweather to 'shut up'

WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who infamously said in 2010 of long-time rival Manny Pacquiao:

"As soon as we come off vacation, we're going to cook that little chump," said Mayweather, 33, the winner of nine world boxing championships in five different weight classes. "Once I stomp that midget, I'll make that motherf----r make me some sushi roll and cook me some rice."

"Pretty Boy" was back in the headlines recently for equally dubious reasons when he made the following comments about New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, who is of Taiwanese decent:

"Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."

In a segment for FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight," which will air tonight (Feb. 21, 2012) at 10 p.m. ET, White addressed Mayweather and his racially charged


"First of all, what [he] said, I think, was racist. He's made a couple of racist comments. And yes, you're racist with the stuff you've said. ... you dummy. Don't worry about what all these other guys are doing, and shooting your big mouth off on Twitter. ... And I know I speak for millions and millions of other people. Shut up ..."

Though it was certainly not spoken in a whisper, White may very well have been echoing what a lot of other sports fans and personalities were feeling toward Mayweather and his comments.
