UFC president Dana White has torn into Triller following Evander Holyfield’s horrific comeback fight against Vitor Belfort.
The former undisputed cruiserweight champion returned to the ring last weekend aged 58 against a revitalised Belfort.
The Real Deal – who sparked concerns for his well-being during his open workouts – looked a shell of his old self and was stopped in just under two minutes.
The latest Triller Fight Club event also saw future UFC Hall of Famer Anderson Silva record a brutal first-round KO over Tito Ortiz, but the event left a bad taste in White’s mouth.
He said: “Guys, let me put it to you this way: anybody who is f*****g dumb enough and willing to pay and watch these f****n’ fights, Anderson Silva boxed Tito Ortiz.
“[He] boxed Tito Ortiz. Tito Ortiz has no business f****n’ boxing anybody.
“Tito’s 40-f****n’ something years old, Evander Holyfield is almost 60 years old and he’s f*****g fighting.
“It’s silly. All of it’s silly, and there’s always gonna be a certain number of people that are dumb enough to buy these fights and pay for them.”

White, however, was impressed by former middleweight king Silva’s destruction of Ortiz, so much so he claimed The Spider might be the greatest fighter in combat sports history.
He said: “Anderson Silva, we honestly need to start talking again about this guy as the GOAT.
“Not Tito, because he knocked Tito out in 40 f****n’ seconds, but he did to Tito exactly what should be done to Tito.
“Knocking Tito out in 40 seconds is what should’ve happened in that fight. Anderson Silva beat Julio Chavez Jr., at, what, 46?
“At 46 f****n’ years old, he left this sport where he was considered one of the greatest of all-time, possibly even the greatest of all-time, goes out, beats Chavez Jr in a boxing match, then goes and knocks Tito out in 40 seconds.
“And, you know how I feel about Tito personally, Tito can’t box.
“He’s a horrible boxer and that’s why I said I would box him, but the other thing about Tito is when he fought here, Tito had a good chin.
“Tito took big shots from a lot of guys who hit hard. Anderson Silva knocked him out in 40 seconds.
“Anderson Silva might actually be the GOAT of combat sports.”
