UFC President Dana White was so displeased with Saturday’s UFC 208 event, that after the fight he said the best part about his Brooklyn debut was the flight home.
The decision heavy fight card only showcased one finish and controversy in both the main and co-main events.
In the co-main event Anderson Silva notched his first victory since 2012, one that many thought went the other way, including UFC’s Dana White.
“I had Brunson winning. I actually had the fight one [round] to one [round] going into the third round and I gave the third round to Brunson. Brunson sent me a text, he’s obviously very upset and he says ‘listen this is how I support my family, now I won’t get my win bonus when I feel like I won the fight’. It’s one of those things, I say it all the time — if you don’t want to get screwed by the judges, don’t let it go to the judges.
“It has nothing to do with me. He can text me and I can feel for him, but it has nothing to do with me. You have to beat your opponent and you have to beat the judges unfortunately. That’s the business.”
