Dana White Embarrassed of UFC 149


UFC 149 was chalked full of lack luster performances and Dana White expressed his how disappointed and embarrassed by what he witnessed.

I think that the under card was awesome. These guys blew it out of the water. I said this the other day and it's true: This company, we make money. I like breaking records. We broke the gate record here tonight and I'm embarrassed. I was excited when I heard, and now I'm embarrassed. The under card delivered -- they were awesome. The main card did not. I don't think the Faber-Barao fight deserved the boos -- you're talking about two of the best guys in the world in a five-round title fight. It was very technical, everyone understands how good Urijah Faber is and Barao dominated him tonight. I think there were a lot of things that went wrong. I felt like I was at UFC 33 again and I think that Cheick Kongo and Jordan pushed against the fence for three rounds and I think the ref let him do it...."
Dana White is correct that he shouldn't have to counsel each fighter before a fight and explain his expectations. Each fighter knows what they need to do before they step in the ring and to clinch against the cage more than anything else is ridiculous. I heard the boos and I even felt embarrassed for the president of the organization Dana White.

Cheick Congo said that he wanted to show that he was still contender material - but that was not put on display tonight. He has great size and speed but his cardio is absolutely terrible. Clinching on the cage should be the last thing you want to effing detrimental to ones overall performance.

MMA fans or more specifically UFC fans are blood thirsty...they want action nonstop. They want fighters to capitalize on every punch landed, every kick landed and every successful take-down - maybe they think fighters don't have game plans IDK. That's not a jab if your UFC fan. Faber vs Barao was the main event on the card and was showered with boos. As White mentioned in the post fight press conference, Faber and Barao was a technical fight. It would be uneventful for either fighter to go balls out just to appease the fans. Urijah Faber expressed his feelings about being boo'd but didn't want to jump around and do something foolish.

Another topic Dana White touched on was poor officiating and judging in that if it continued in MMA and Boxing it would KILL combat sports. A prime example is Kongo and Jordans three round hugging match or as Dana White better describes as Ultimate Clinching.

In my opinion, White is correct ... poor officiating and judging will ruin the sport - Bradlely and Pacquiao is a prime example...nuff said.
