Dana White is a sad panda. The UFC 229 post-event fracas happened and he felt like he was the only person on Earth who cared. Truth be told, he may have been. What happened, happened and everyone seemingly moved on. Not Dana White, however. Dana felt it was the UFC’s biggest night ever and it was totally ruined.
I know I may be in the minority here, but with so many eyes on this fight and the melee happening, people probably loved it. Jerry Springer made a career out of things like this.
“For me, personally… All the work I put that I put into this the last 20 years of my life. I don’t want to see it go down like that.
The digital buys on this fight were bigger than any sporting event ever in the history of digital. For me, it was just our biggest moment, the most people watching ever, and that’s just not who we are. It’s not even who Khabib is. He said many times after the fight that he went crazy after the fight and it happens sometimes. This is the fight business. But yeah, I was the most upset guy on the planet after that fight. Nobody else cared.”
The fact that no one was hurt and the melee was contained so quickly has made the fracas sort of swept under the rug.
