The UFC president speaks...
UFC President Dana White appeared on the post-fight show for UFC 165 to give his thoughts on the card and the title fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson in the main event. You can check out some highlights and a video of the segment below:
White on the main event: "It was awesome. Not only did I not expect this fight to go five rounds, I didn't think Alex would stop Jones from taking him down. In fact it was the opposite. Gustafsson actually took him down."
White on if this performance will get Jones more respect: "Yes. He's got an incredible chin and he has unorthodox striking. I know Gustafsson's hurting right now, but his stock is way up right now too."
White on how hurt Jones was during the fight: "Jones had a huge cut on his face. The doctors were going to stop the fight before the fifth round, but Jon and McCarty both begged them to not stop the fight."
