That's why White is suggesting that Affliction VP Tom Atencio should focus on leading Affliction Entertainment than participating in a mixed martial arts fight.
"Let me tell you something: When I was $44 million in the hole, the last thing I was doing was leaving the office and going out to train for a joke of a fight," White told Yahoo! Sports. "I was in the office and trying to find a way to make this thing work. Why would I waste one second of my second of my day worrying about this [expletive] guy? He should be worried about the millions and millions of his bosses, or his partners' money, whoever it is, that's he's burning. That's a complete joke."
Atencio, 41, is currently juggling fight promoting and training for a fight. He'll step in the cage against Randy Hedderick at the "Ultimate Chaos" pay-per-view event taking place June 27 in Biloxi, Mississippi. Atencio has competed once before, winning by decision after three rounds at Total Combat 7 in Tijuana, Mexico in January 2005.
"At the end of the day, I stepped up and said I would fight Tito and he was a fighter who people cared about," White said to Yahoo! Sports. "But why would I fight this goof? He's neither a fighter nor a promoter. He's a [expletive] loser. That's all he is."
