White was a big fan...
Dana White spoke last night following UFC 165 about the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson fight and more. Check out the highlights:
On the end of the fight: "You could tell in the last round both of those guys were fighting on pure heart. Both of them. Gustafsson had never been five rounds before, and he got hurt bad with those elbows in the fourth round. He got hit with some stuff in the fifth round. Jon Jones was busted up and kept moving forward. He pleaded with the doctor not to stop it in the fifth. Not that I can talk to this either, but I believe this is one of those fights where both guys felt like they were going to die. You feel like, 'I don't know if I can continue. I don't know if I can keep doing this. I don't know if I can go one more round,' if they even knew what round it was."
On the fight being an MMA fan's dream: "It was one of those kind of fights. It's why you've got to respect what happened here so much."
