“I wasn’t expecting it.”
Speaking to reporters in a pre-fight media scrum, UFC President Dana White commented on the altercation that took place during the pre-fight press conference between UFC 170 light heavyweight competitors Daniel Cormier and Patrick Cummins. You can watch a video of the incident HERE (It happens toward the end, when the fighters pose for pictures).
The two faced off after the press conference for pictures, and then Cormier shoved Cummins before White got between them. Moments after the incident, White stated: "I wasn't expecting it. It caught me off guard. Honestly, I think he's really upset that (Cummins) said the things that he said. He said he made him cry. I don't care who you are. No one wants to hear that."
UFC 170 is set for Saturday, February 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card will be broadcast live on PPV.
