Dana White Blasts GSP and NSAC During UFC 167 Post Fight Press Conference

On Saturday night at UFC 167, Georges St. Pierre successfully defended his UFC Welterweight Championship against challenger Johny Hendricks. At least, the judge’s think he did. The rest of the mixed martial arts community is currently in an uproar claiming that Johny Hendricks did enough to dethrone the champion. Even the UFC President Dana White feels that Hendricks was robbed.

At the start of the UFC 167 Post Fight Press Conference, Dana White went on a tirade about how the governor needed to step in and make some big changes to how the Nevada State Athletic Commission operates.

“Did you see Georges get smashed and hurt in the first round? It’s about damage. This is a fight. It’s about whoever inflicts the most damage. He got hurt, he got wobbled, he got dropped. I’m blown away that Georges St. Pierre won that fight. And listen, I’m a promoter. He’s the biggest pay-per-view star on the f*****g planet for me, and I still don’t think he won that fight. I want what’s fair and that wasn’t fair.” White claimed.

He continued, “I think the Nevada State Athletic Commission is atrocious. I think the governor needs to step in immediately before these guys destroy this sport like they did boxing. It’s absolute 100% incompetence and it needs to stop— I’m f*****g scared to come back here and do fights! I’m afraid of this state. I guarantee if you did a poll, not many people found that Georges St. Pierre won that fight.”

When a media member asked what he thought about St. Pierre’s quasi-retirement speech, his face got even more red.

“Did he say he wants to retire? He didn’t say ‘I’m gonna retire, it’s been great everybody! Thanks a lot for all the years, see you later!’ He said ‘I’m gonna take some time off and I’m gonna”— FIRST of all, that decision that happens, right? You don’t just say ‘I’m gonna take a while off and maybe I’ll be back and maybe I won’t’. You owe it to the fans, you owe it to that belt, you owe it to this company and you owe it to Johny Hendricks to give him that opportunity to fight again unless you’re gonna retire.”

When asked if he was going to try and convince GSP to come back sooner rather than later, White responded “You bet your *** I will my friend.”

    Maybe Dana should strap on the gloves and see if he can withstand the pressure of ONE fucking fight, before ripping on someone who’s not only been on top for so long but also helped build his company. What a two faced dick – I lost respect for him tonight. If I was GSP I’d say fuck you then bitch & move on.

  2. Confucius says:

    Dana really is a piece of shit sometimes. a champ for over 6-7 years now and the first fight where it actually wasn’t one sided and Dana throws him under the bus. Dana always says he doesn’t judge the fights. if you wanna be the champ you gotta beat the champ as they say. if you don’t stop the fight be prepared for any judge decision as we’ve seen crazier things. gsp should retire there isn’t anything left to prove anymore.

    • T.DADDY says:

      so your saying that even though Hendricks clearly won because he didn’t finish gsp that its ok that the judges gave it to gsp?? Hendricks won that fight even Rogan and Goldberg were speechless that gsp won… gsp should have two more losses on his record.. the first BJ fight and last nights fight… Hendricks got screwed

  3. the natural says:

    dana is a douche always will be a douche if ur not fatting his pockets he can care less about u every legend from shamrock to ortiz he bashes hes such a piece of shit thats y the ufc will start to fall
    its all because of fighters ufc is what it is not because of egotysticle cant spell bald nobody gives a shit about dana white its ABOUT HIM JUST BEING A PIECE OF SHIT DONT C Y A UNION HASNT FORMED AND nobody has stepped up about brain damage rest of there life for a couple fights so this bald dick can line his pockets
    and i like dana ha funny right but the way he treats a fighter or company after ther not lineining his pockets i think really brings out his real character which is a oiece of shit who doesnt care about his fighters

  4. paul says:

    shut the fuck dana dickhead, you shit dribbling wannabe whos never had a fight in his life, yet knows every fucking thing, woop doop you the president of fuck all moron how about you fuck off and retire,what do you want? for you to over rule all the judges and get the final say in everything? what a fucking farce that would be….gsp won so shut the fuck up hes been on top for 6 years and for 6 years you have made a shit load of money from him..

  5. krafty11 says:

    Hendricks got screwed .. plain and simple.. I dont know how anyone can say GSP won that fight.. Hendricks landed more strikes and did way more damage.. The NSAC is atrocious.. Dana might talk a lotta noise, but he is right about the them..

  6. 757 says:

    I like GSP but he lost. Dana should have a little more respect than to just start blasting the guy. They made allot of money off GSP and if he quits I guess Dana is pissed because he sees his cash cow walking away. Sonnwen is a joke. He should not be permitted to fight Wand or anyone else…get him out of here now. What a bum. Lawler is a beast love watching that guy fight again. Rory all bloodied up that was fun he got his ass whipped…Canadian pshyco my ass he got beat up ha ha. Sonne made his money and now his mouth has taken him as far as it’s going to go….YOU SUCK!

  7. daniel says:

    Dana is garbage he is going to bring this sport down the way Don King did boxing, its not good for a man that is not suppose to take sides to blast a fighter cause he saw it different, he dose this every time one of his fighters are reaching the end, the man will be the down fall of UFC another brand will come along and take over or UFC, MMA is great and you have men deciding fights cause the fighters couldn’t finish it, Hendricks only has himself to blame he didn’t finish it.

  8. T.Daddy says:

    Hendricks won that fuckin fight…. if you think otherwise you don’t know shit… GSP looked like he got beat with a bat… Hendricks didn’t have scratch on him… ROBBERY PLAIN AND FUCKIN SIMPLE

  9. T.DADDY says:

    you GSP fans are the worst!!!! you getting your feeling hurt because dana is keeping it real… all butt hurt about gsps feelings… what about Hendricks?? he clearly won that fight.. 4-1 or 3-2 gsp even knew he lost… gsp is a great champ but he lost last night

  10. Drew says:

    Its really beat that hendricks won abd this is the shit that goes down.

  11. 757 says:

    Bravo TDADDY for stating the obvious. I guess you probably where on the other side of when your boy JBJ lost but still got the nod……

    • T.DADDY says:

      go look at my old post wise guy… I had Gus winning that fight… I lost all respect for bones when he was scared to fight sonnen when hendo got hurt so don’t assumimg shit wise guy

  12. UFC 84 Forever says:

    While I usually side with Dana, this really was a low blow. As for the fight; it was the same as Jones vs. Gus.

    A challenger did AMAZINGLY well against one of the best in the world, in the moment I thought GSP had lost badly like anyone else. If you consider the fact that GSP was outstriking him (damage does not score you any points in 10 point must, also GSP gets bloody even if you gently tap him, so don’t say look at his face vs. Hendricks’), had more takedowns, and ultimately for most of the fight was the one pushing forward, you can see why judges might give it to him. Jones won his fight, and GSP won his, it’s controversial but it is not a robbery. A fight that was decided by one round cannot be a robbery. GSP shouldn’t be talking that shit about taking a break though, I really hope that whatever those issues are that they’re serious. He should be getting his ass in there and rematching Hendricks right away. Hendricks impressed me, but he is still undoubtedly a cocky jackass. Wonder how this will turn out. Lawler vs. Hendricks is a fight I was calling for during the Rory fight, Lawler might be getting way too big of a push, but make it happen.

    • michael says:

      Ufc 84 forever is absolutely right. He said it to a tee. I think GSP did enough to win the decision. His front kicks to Hendricks body and arms is what slowed him down in the later rounds. GSP said he was not impressed with Hendricks wrestling and it was not a factor. GSP took a beating but did not lose.

      • T.DADDY says:

        stop making all these excuses of why gsp got the win… its total BS! Hendricks won that shit… Dana joe rogan and every fighter that tweeted said gsp lost… stop with all your BS scenerios of why gsp won…

  13. punchkick says:

    hendricks coasted the whole fight,

  14. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    DW shouldn’t blast GSP for that decision, he doesn’t control the judges. The fighters fight the best they can and if the fight doesn’t get finished it goes to completely incompetent judges.
    .
    There should be a system so judges who consistenly see it the wrong way can be detected and fired because they’re unfit for the job.

  15. pk9grrr says:

    You go dana tell it as it is!!people should watch the actual conference

    • Sasquatch says:

      You should pull Dana’s nuts out of your mouth and see him for what he is.. A disrespecting unappreciative peace of sh!t.

  16. John says:

    Fuck Dana.GSP doesn’t owe anybody for one.two GSP looked worse than Hendricks but its a point system. Which clearly GSP is very good at. And he won.you don’t win fight cause a guy face looks worse than yours.it looks like Hendricks might have tapped out in the first pound anyways.

  17. maddkillah says:

    it was close but GSP won rounds 1,3 & 5. 48 to 47, GSP..

    • Sasquatch says:

      Exactly how I scored it the second time I watched it with out listening to Rogan and Goldberg sucking Johnny off the whole time. Terrible commentating!.. they were calling shots from Hendrix that weren’t even landing and talking about how he started doing push-ups at 5 years old while GSP was landing a sweet combo.. but no mention of that. And f**k Dana.. all the blood sweat and tears GSP poured out over the years for the UFC while they cashed in on his PPV numbers and that’s the thanks he gets!

      • Magoo says:

        Props to GSP for standing with Hendricks the whole fight, and taking everything Johny had to throw at him!… (Even though it only thrown at 70%)….smh. I guess u had to do a little more then just touch him Johny! The fight was close even though GSP didn’t seem himself it was a gutsy performance,I think the judges called it right, Johny coasted through that last round and George picked it up a notch it was nice seeing GSP throwing the leather back at Henricks in the pocket. As for the fair weathered bald headed chicken fukcer Dana White…… Well let’s just say it was another one of your I don’t give a shit douchebag moves throwing one of your most loyal employees under the bus!! … Fukn dick. Finally last but not least, Johny clearly tapped to that guillotine George applied on big rig after the take down in the first!

        • T.DADDY says:

          props for standing with Hendricks the whole fight??? lmao! give me a break gsp went for the takedown right away.. he didn’t stand by choice gsp wanted to take it to the ground but he couldn’t keep Hendricks down.. jonny didn’t tap … that’s another idiotic statement

        • UFC 84 Forever says:

          Very true. All Johnny did for the most part was fling himself at GSP and neutralize some wrestling. That is not how you win a fight, it’s not even a great way to knock someone out. We saw the same thing in the Condit fight, except he (Hendricks) was able to use his wrestling to score in that fight… GSP won this fight, it was just too emotional in the moment to score properly. No one can say GSP has a glass chin anymore. No suspect chin there. It also seemed to me like GSP seemed to hurt his knee early in the fight, but that’s not been talked about so maybe I was wrong about that. And you’re right about the tap, if only GSP had held on a little longer we wouldn’t have this big uproar, oh well.

  18. T.DADDY says:

    you gsp fans are delusional… f.uckin delusional!!! Carlos Condit said it best.. “worst decision ever”

    • magoo says:

      Actually Bispings win over Hamill was probably the worst decision ever! This fight was decided by one round, remember tdaddy to be the champ u have to beat the champ….. Decisively!!! Johny was trying to win the fight on points, something everyone on this site hated GSP for… Kinda ironic wouldn’t u say? As far as Condit goes, he knows his chances of getting the title would be easier through Hendricks then St Pierre…. So yea I guess he would say worst decision ever. How soon everyone forgets the Diaz/Condit fight u know the natural born runner! Condit should think before he tweets!

  19. jeremy says:

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’S NOT. IF YOU JUDGE THE FIGHT STRICTLY ON A ROUND BY ROUND 10-9 BASIS THEN I BELIEVE GSP WON. WATCHING IT LIVE I HAD IT TIED GOING INTO THE 5TH ROUND. HENDRICKS RELAXED TOO MUCH & THOUGHT HE HAD IT IN THE BAG, AND HE DIDN’T. HE NEEDED TO WIN THE 5TH ROUND. HAD HE DONE THAT HE PROBABLY WINS FOR SURE. HIS FAULT!! BY THE WAY I WAS PULLING FOR JOHNNY HENDRICKS IN THAT FIGHT AND WILL BE PULLING FOR HIM IN THE REMATCH. JUST CALLING IT HOW I SEE IT, BASED ON THE SCORING SYSTEM THAT’S IN PLACE. SO BY NO MEANS WAS IT A ROBBERY!!
