I don't follow the UFC, but this even crossed my radar.

That caught my attention as well. I think White has a point, and in that, I can understand why he's quite upset...I suppose I'd be as well if I was in his shoes.

Again, things like this derail the UFC and any other thing that's MA. We're lumped into this unwillingly and it will never stop. Why? Money!!

Imho!!

I saw the fight, and I don't think GSP won it, and I can see where White is upset with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I think the scoring system needs to be addressed in MMA, and it should be done by former fighters, and not a state board that isn't familiar with fighting.

GSP has always been a gentleman, and if he is a bit understated in announcing that he's done, it just follows his typical speech patterns. If he doesn't want to say he's done forever, fine.

Dana White is like Vince McMahon. He's made the sport huge, he's a smart businessman. But I find him hard to like.
