Dana White wants you to watch both UFC-Pittsburgh and Canelo vs. GGG tonight

UFC President Dana White has always claimed he’s a fight fan first and foremost.

Tonight should be a fight fan’s delight, because on top of UFC Fight Night 116, which takes place at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh with a Luke Rockhold (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) vs. David Branch (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) middleweight headliner, the highly anticipated boxing match between Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1) and Gennady Golovkin (37-0) will finally go down in Las Vegas.

Although portions of the fight cards will run simultaneously, with UFC airing on FS1 and Alvarez and Golovkin clashing on pay-per-view, White is seemingly encouraging fans to check out both. Well, at least that’s what this promo released on his social media appears to indicate (via Instagram):

When u LOVE fighting….. today is a GOOD day!!!! #gggcanelo #rockholdvsbranch #boxingUFC
