White Feels Hendricks Won, NSAC Needs To Be Fixed

25

Dana White was not happy during the UFC 167 press conference last night and let loose a multiple topics including the decision the judges rendered during the main event between Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks. White was vocal on who he felt won and pulled no punches on what he thinks of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC):

“Does anybody here think that Johny Hendricks didn’t win the fight? I’m blown away that Georges St-Pierre won that fight. And listen, I’m a promoter. He’s the biggest pay-per-view star on the f–king 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 Nevada State Athletic Commission is atrocious. I think the governor needs to step in immediately before these guys destroy the sport like they did boxing…I should be, ‘Whoo-hoo! These idiots gave it to Georges.’ But it’s not fair, it’s not right, it’s not the way things work. It’s not the way they should work. At the end of the day, we put on a fight with two of the best guys in the world, and whoever wins, wins.”

He continued: “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 absolutely, 100 percent incompetence, and it needs to stop. I’m f–king scared to come back here and (promote) fights. I’m afraid of this state.”
