We haven’t seen UFC President Dana White beyond upset about a decision in a main event fight in a very long time. White snapped off on the Nevada State Athletic Commission during the UFC 167 post-fight press conference regarding Georges St-Pierre retaining the UFC welterweight title over Johny Hendricks by a controversial split decision.
“Does anyone here think Johny Hendricks didn’t win that fight”?, White stated. Did you see George getting smashed in the first round? It’s about damage. This is a fight. it’s about whoever inflicts the most damage. He got hurt, he got wobbled, he got dropped. I’m blown away that Georges St. Pierre won that fight.
And listen, I’m the promoter, he’s the biggest pay-per-view star on the f***ing planet for me. And I still don’t think he won that fight. I want what’s fair and that wasn’t fair. I think the NSAC is atrocious. I think the governor needs to step in immediately before these guys destroy this sport like they did boxing.”
White even went as far to say to that the governor of Nevada needs to step in and fix the problems with the athletic commission.
“The alternatives are is the Governor needs to step in and fix the incompetence that is happening in the State of Nevada that used to be the best commission in the world. It’s absolute 100% incompetence and it needs to stop. I’m f***ing scared to come back here and do fights. I’m afraid of this state.”
Should the UFC go back to Nevada?
