Calls main event one of the "greatest fights" ever...
UFC President Dana White appeared on the post-fight show on Fox Sports 2 to break down the card and talk about other news in the UFC. Below are some highlights and a video of the interview:
White on Hendricks' victory and the UFC 171 main event: "That's one of the greatest fights. Those guys stood in there and traded. I had it two-two going into the last round. In the fifth round it was Robbie's fight to win or lose. He got caught and lost it. But I'd say there's no loser in this fight – it was an awesome fight."
White on Nick Diaz's presence at UFC 171 and his future: "Nick was there heckling Hendricks the whole fight. He hasn't talked to me about fighting."
White saying Georges St-Pierre will return: "This whole thing got blown out of proportion. He's got personal problems and when he gets them handled, he'll be back. He never said he was retiring."
White on the current status of Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva: "This is the fight that's going to happen. There's something else that's holding it up, and we should have it resolved soon. It does me no good to talk about it in public."
