Dana White Disappointed with UFC Fight Night Co-Main Event Bout Between Michael Johnson and Melvin Guillard
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.08.2014



At the post-fight press conference for UFC Fight Night 37, UFC President Dana White criticized the main card lightweight bout between Melvin Guillard and Michael Johnson. The fight was the co-main event on the main card. Johnson won the fight by unanimous decision.

Speaking on the fight, White stated: "There's no doubt Melvin ran the entire fight and was incredibly passive, the complete opposite of how he used to fight. There was a lot of smack talk leading up to that fight, and those are the fights that everybody gets excited about, and nine times out of 10 they end up like tonight. Those drive me crazy. I was excited for that fight. I thought (they were) both really explosive athletes who can mix it up really well, and it just didn't happen tonight. But you take tonight and take it to any city in the world and one fight is a bad fight, I'll take that every time."

During the presser, Johnson was also present and talked a bit more about the fight and his performance. He stated: "It was obvious he didn't want a piece of me. I'm a little pissed off that our fight was considered bad. I came here to fight, and he was running and not engaging. He was talking a lot of st before the fight, and I expected him to do something. But instead, he didn't. I did think he was a little scared of me in this fight." He continued, "Even though the fight didn't go as planned, I thought we were going to fight a little more. I'm still happy with the win, and I'm looking onto bigger and better things."
