UFC President Says If You Didn’t Like Benavidez vs. Johnson He Doesn’t Want Your Money | UFC NEWS
“It doesn’t matter what we do, how many fights in a row we put on, or how these guys perform. I was reading Twitter tonight and these people were ripping on the flyweights. If you didn’t like that flyweight fight, please, and I’m begging you, don’t buy another UFC pay-per-view again. Don’t ever buy another one again; I don’t want your money. You’re a moron, you don’t like fighting and you don’t appreciate great talent or heart if you didn’t like that flyweight fight. That kid fought his ass off tonight, look at (Benavidez’s) face, going after a guy who is incredibly talented and picking him apart and moving. He never gave up and went five straight rounds. When I get on Twitter and I see that stuff, I get crazy man. Please, please, please, those of you that said that, I don’t want your money. I wasn’t surprised, I was horrified by the booing. I tell these guys in the back that after the weigh-ins are over and the way that this relationship works is that these guys are our partners. You know we go in and do this and that and everything else and these guys go out and they deliver. Every fight you’re going to see in the UFC, two guys aren’t going to run into each other and just start swinging like mad men. These two guys worked their entire life to get to this point and it’s a five-round title fight. If they can get the knockout or the submission quick, sure they’re going to go for it. But the guys are so talented that you have the world champion right here and the second best guy in the world. It’s insane; it drives me crazy.”
If you didn’t like the UFC 152 co-main event last weekend that crowned the first ever UFC 125 pound champion, than Dana White doesn’t want you to ever buy another pay-per-view from the UFC again.
The UFC president went off on the topic during Saturday nights Post fight press conference after reporters asked him to respond to the live crowds booing, during Johnson vs. Benavidez.
