Affliction's Tom Atencio Wants Fight With Dana White

Affliction’s mild-mannered VP Tom Atencio has now gone on the offensive against UFC president Dana White. Atencio will be competing in his second professional MMA fight against Randy Hedderick, however he is hoping it will serve as a tune-up for a scrap with White down the road.  

“He [Dana White] talks like a fighter, so why doesn’t he fight?” Atencio said about White.

With Affliction gaining momentum with the roster for their third event, it appears as though Atencio wants to get in on some of the action himself.

“I’m not saying I could beat the guy, but let’s fight,” Atencio continued.

It would be an interesting fight as White was a former amateur boxer in his heyday, however if it were to happen, you know White would insist on it taking place inside an Octagon.

The ball’s in Dana’s court now, but don’t hold your breath.
