Only someone who is not too smart would put down boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. on national TV.
UFC President Dana White is definitely a smart guy. So what was he doing declaring that the man considered by most to be the best boxer on the planet right now would "get murdered" if he switched over to mixed martial arts on Monday night's episode of the "Arsenio" talk show?
Actually, White wasn't trying to insult Mayweather at all. Instead, he gave a very thoughtful answer to host Arsenio Hall's question about how the undefeated WBC welterweight champ would do in White's sport.
"He'd get murdered in the UFC," White said. "It's like my guys thinking they can go over and box and Floyd thinking that he can come over here in the UFC. It's like you go to a knife fight with a guy and the other guy's got guns and chains and crowbars.
"There's so many more weapons in the UFC than there are in boxing. So it just makes no sense."
I agree 100%. (After all, only someone who is not too smart would disagree with Dana White.)
