DW Happy With Stoppage In Condit Vs. MacDonald Bout

UFC President Dana White has been critical of referees in the past for letting bouts go a little too long. So, when asked at the UFC 115 post fight press conference what his thoughts were on the ref stopping Carlos Condit from pummeling Rory MacDonald any further with 9 seconds left in their fight, it should come as no surprise White was happy:

“I'm the first one to blast a referee or judge for making bad calls, but in my opinion, referees aren't looking at the time — they couldn't give a shit what time it is or how much time is left. They're there to protect the fighters. Rory's a young guy, he's got a lot of fights ahead of him and he took a lot of damage in that last round. I didn't have any problem with the stoppage. It's just unfortunate when a fight stops with seconds left, you know? It's just one of those things, but you won't hear me bitching about that one.”
