Shots Fired! Dana White Blames Manny Pacquiao's Promoter For His Devastating Loss to Juan Manuel MarquezRon Chenoy/USA TODAY Sports

Dana White knows who's to blame for Manny Pacquiao's loss at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez last weekend. And, it's not Pacquiao, who let his guard down for half a second and ended up laid out on the canvas as a result of it. Instead, the UFC president says Pacman's promoter Bob Arum deserves the blame for what happened to Pacquiao.

"I'm the biggest Pacquiao fan ever," White said over the weekend, "and I bet on Marquez. Dumbest fight in history. Bob Arum's a moron. You don't take that fight, you idiot! Why would you do that fight? It's all about the money, that's why. That was a money fight, that's what that fight was done for."

He had some more advice for Arum, too, with regards to how he should have handled Pacquiao's career recently.

"[Pacquiao] should have fought [Timothy] Bradley," he said. "Bradley's the fight they should have done. He would have knocked Bradley out, he would have got his belt back, and now he's back in the position he should have been in. [Pacquiao's] one of the best fighters in the world. He goes out and fights Marquez again? Bob Arum is the dumbest promoter in the history of the world."

In the history of the world, though?! Ha! Geez. Shots FIRED.
