Dana White was not happy about the decision of Drew Dober and Leandro Silva’s bout. Needless to say, he was asked about it and went on a rant about how badly the referee screwed up.

White kicked things off with a “fact” he learned about the referee: “Supposedly, the referee is a black belt in BJJ.” After sporting a sarcastic smile, White went on to analyze the finish of the fight. “That was so far from a tap, we are going to pay [Dober] his win money. He was about to take a dominant position and possibly do damage and win the fight.”

“It’s definitely one of the biggest referee screw ups of all time. It should absolutely positively be a No Contest. It’s probably gonna be tough to do because [the athletic commissions] protect their own. They like to protect their refs.”
