UFC President Dana White Apologizes for Judging Protocol Breach: ‘I Overstepped My Bounds'

UFC president Dana White was an unhappy man at the UFC 167 post-fight press conference telling the media assembled that he was “blown away” that welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was awarded a split decision victory, saying that he feels that the Governor of Nevada needs to step in and clean up his state's Athletic Commission.

“Nevada is a very scary place,” White said on the UFC Post Fight show on Fox Sports. “This is the worst commission on the planet. I'm afraid to bring fights to Las Vegas. George knew he lost, his corner knew he lost, Hendricks knew he won, and his corner knew they won.

“Boxing was so corrupt for many years that the government had to come in and regulate it, but there's some real issues here in Nevada that need to be fixed. The governor needs to really sit down and make some serious decisions about this Athletic Commission.

“It's something we need to look at, this city is scary. They have a lot of work to do. It makes me sick. They better figure out on how to not destroy not only the sport of boxing, but this sport too.”

St-Pierre was awarded a split decision over Hendricks, with two of the judges scoring round one to the champion, which determined the outcome of the fight.

“I'm blown away that Georges St-Pierre won that fight,” White continued. “I'm the promoter and he's the biggest fighter in the sport. I should be “woo hoo,” these idiots gave it to Georges, but it's not fair, it's not right. Johny Hendricks won that fight and he deserves to get that fight again.”

Despite St-Pierre saying post-fight that he wants to take some time away from the sport, White said that he will grant an immediate rematch and that St-Pierre owes everyone to come back and fight Hendricks again.
