Dana White On Jones/Cormier Brawl: 'It's Our Bad'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 08.17.2014



Dana White spoke last night following UFC Fight Night 47 about the scuffle between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier earlier this month and more. Check out the highlights:

On the incident: "You want my personal opinion? Our bad. It's our bad. These guys are fighters. They're two of the baddest dudes on the planet. They're going face-to-face to stare off. We have to make sure that doesn't happen and shouldn't happen, but it did...I don't think that was something that was thought about. What happened was, when Jones went in fast and hard the way he did, he head butted (Cormier). Listen, you've got two of the baddest dudes in the world going face-to-face. Every time you do a staredown, it's always explosive and anything can happen. Two of my favorite things in the sport (are) the weigh-ins and the fight. At the weigh-ins, guys have been away from their families for eight weeks or longer. They're cutting weight, fight's the next day. They're nasty, they're mean, they're irritable and it's explosive and anything can happen. Then the day of the fight is the reason we all watch."

On not being there: "Dave ‘The Ragdoll' Sholler, he doesn't have a lot of experience in that position. That thing got a little crazy. It's going to happen. This isn't ice-skating. It's the fight business and anything can happen at any given moment, no matter how educated the guys are, how great they are, everything is always explosive, man. Two of the baddest dudes get in each other's face, you've got to be ready and make sure nothing happens."

On the "hot mics" post-ESPN interview footage leaking: "I know how the clip got out there. Every time you do those transmissions, those transmissions out there, they go to tons of media and they're jumping from station to station. Somebody was on there actually filming when they were talking. You think that's bad? You should see the other stuff we have that they were saying to each other that people didn't get. It was pretty nasty."
