The Raiders quarterback, Derek Carr, took to his Twitter and hit up UFC president Dana White and voiced his desire to start an organization where pro athletes can whoop people who talk trash about them. In this instance, Carr’s ire was directed towards ESPN’s Max Kellerman.
This is a great pitch because as we all know after communication breaks down there’s only one thing left to do and that’s lock yourself inside of a cage and beat the crap out of someone. Fighting does indeed solve everything.
Carr tweeted to White,
“Hey, how do I challenge a couple of these clowns on tv to a fight? I think we should start a business together. Where pro athletes can challenge some of these people to an Octagon fight until they give us an answer.
You don’t know me.
“Say what you want, but don’t question somebody’s character as a man if you don’t know them. Our job as NFL athletes is to try and leave the game better for the next generations. So let’s start an Octagon business to give some accountability to these kinds of people.”
I think this is a wonderful idea, personally. Dana, make it happen.
@ufc @danawhite hey how do I challenge a couple of these clowns on tv to a fight? I think we should start a business together. Where pro athletes can challenge some of these people to an octagon fight until they give us an answer…. You don’t know me… stop lying.
