Dana White Accepts Challenge from Former MLS Soccer Star
Let me refresh your memory.
I’m not a big hockey fan. But I respect how talented you have to be to play hockey. Soccer? That’s a whole other ball. Can’t stand soccer. It’s the least-talented sport on Earth. There’s a reason three-year-olds can play soccer.
I noted in my story that this claim was ludicrous. Dana is a passionate guy and speaks from the heart, but he was dead wrong on this one.
Former Major League Soccer star Jimmy Conrad also took issue with White's comments. Conrad, if you don't know, used to play center back for Chivas USA. He was a pretty good footballer, at least from the American side, and was named to the equivalent of the MLS All-Pro Team on four separate occasions.
Conrad issued an open challenge to White, which can be viewed in the video above:
Have you ever even played soccer, Dana? Can you pass a ball, like to a teammate, instead of some guy in the 3rd row? Can you run at top speed, while holding off a defender, and aiming for the corner of the goal being guarded by a massive 6'4" goal keeper? Yeah, probably not.
So listen, here's what I'm going to do. Because I like you, I'm going to give you the opportunity to join me and a few friends for a game of soccer. Since you believe playing soccer requires no talent, I'm sure you'll be the star. Unless you're scared. Well let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
To White's credit, he immediately accepted the challenge via Twitter. Much like the time White promised to base jump off Mandalay Bay if UFC 100 did 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, we don't know if he will actually show up. He's a busy man, after all, and can be forgiven if something like this slips through the cracks.
But if White does show up, I sure hope someone gets the event on video. Watching Dana attempt shots on goal and seeing his sure-to-be-awful first touch on passes would be pure comedy gold of the highest order. Not to mention the hilarity of seeing White's attempts to defend Conrad and his friends as they dribble around him in Harlem Globetrotter fashion.
God, I hope this actually happens.
