UFC president Dana White had a classic response to Oscar De La Hoya’s apparent plans to return to the boxing ring.
The 47-year-old De La Hoya, who hasn’t fought since a December 2008 loss to Manny Pacquiao, recently announced he’s plotting a comeback to compete.
White, a longtime enemy of De La Hoya who’s never been hesitant to take verbal shot, didn’t miss out on the opportunity when asked for his thoughts during Saturday night’s UFC on ESPN 15 post-fight news conference.
“Cocaine isn’t cheap,” White said. “It’s expensive. You’ve got to make money.”
There have yet to be details about when or against whom De La Hoya could have his comeback fight. Clearly, though, it’s of little interest to the UFC boss.
