UFC President Dana White was not happy when he heard the result of Saturday’s boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Glennady Golovkin.

Dana White was in attendance for the highly anticipated boxing match which took place under the bright lights of T-Mobile Arena.

The fight lived up to the hype as Canelo and ‘GGG’ went to war for twelve rounds.

While the majority of the fans watching around the world believed that Golovkin had done enough to be awarded the decision victory, only one judge in attendance scored the fight for ‘GGG’.

The Alvarez vs. Golovkin fight was definitely close, and two of the judges saw it that way.

One judge, Don Trella, ruled the fight a draw with a 114-114 scorecard.

Judge Dave Moretti had the bout 115-113 in favor of Gennady Golovkin, which seemed to be the general consensus of fight fans who for the most part had ‘GGG’ winning a close decision.

Then there was the scorecard of judge Adelaide Byrd, who somehow managed to score the contest 118-110 in favor of Canelo Alvarez.

While the fight was definitely a closely contested match, there is NO WAY that Canelo Alvarez won ten rounds in the fight. (See the Twitter reactions here)

Shortly following the fights conclusion, the brash UFC boss took to Twitter where he blasted the NSAC (Nevada State Athletic Commission) over the judges decision.

“NSAC That is DISGUSTING!!!!!!!” – Dana White

With the draw, Golovkin still retained his WBC, IBF, WBA, and IBO middleweight titles, while Canelo Alvarez retained his lineal championship.
