UFC President Embarrassed by Cody McKenzie Shorts Issue at UFC on Fox 9
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.15.2013



Speaking at the post-fight press conference for UFC on Fox 9, UFC President Dana White addressed the issue of Cody McKenzie's wardrobe issue during his fight with Sam Stout on the Fox Sports 1 prelims for the event.

McKenzie's shorts during the fight still had a price tag on them. Later on during the bout, referee Herb Dean spotted the tag and pulled it off.

White on the incident: "What that was is UFC amateur hour...We have a guy backstage who policies all the things when you got a guy going out there. First of all, if it's not bad enough that he's out there with basketball shorts on, how about he's got the price tag still on the shorts during the fight? So, it's pretty embarrassing."

White on dealing with this issue with Cody McKenzie: "It was one of the weirdest things I've ever seen, and it's even weirder that we let it happen. Didn't we have this conversation once? This is like deja vu. Maybe he was going to fight in his jeans and thought he should get some shorts. I don't know, man. Cody McKenzie's a strange dude. But it's not Cody's fault that that happened tonight. That's the UFC's vault. We're here for a show on FOX, and it's pretty damn embarrassing...I don't even know what to say. We're stupid. I was pissed."
