Bob Arum: MMA

The big news from Top Rank Boxing's Bob Arum's press conference in Yankee Stadium should've been either a)the announcement of a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas on Nov. 14, b)The possibility of an actual boxing event at Yankee Stadium in 2010 or c) Arum's slamming of Floyd Mayweather. But nope. What seems to be the buzz is an interview of Arum by Fanhouse's Ariel Helwani where he refers to both MMA fighters and its audience as "skinhead white guys", then later described an MMA fight as being "Guys rolling around like homosexuals on the ground".
Arum's obviously never heard of either Quinton "Rampage" Jackson or Rashad Evans, but that's neither here nor there. Anyhow, the interview is right here. Fireworks begin around the 4:00 mark.
