Dana White like everyone else is shocked by the UFC Fight Night 84 results. In a surprising move, Michael Bisping defeated Anderson Silva at the UFC Fight Night 84 held in London by unanimous decision.
“Bisping wins the decision in the end,” Dana White said after watching the replay of the fight, reports FOX Sports.
White however thought that Silva won.
“I had — and I have to watch it again, there was so much craziness going on here after the flying knee — but I believe I had it even going into the fifth round and whoever wins the fifth round wins the fight and I thought that Anderson Silva won. By the same score, but the other way,” he said.
The fight was not without its share of controversy. Bisping lost his mouthpiece during the fight. He signaled the referee about it but Herb Dean told the fighters to continue. As a result, Bisping ended up with a lot of stitches on his face. He has blamed Dean for the stitches on his face.
“Michael Bisping was way too concerned about his mouthpiece and tried to stop the action. Anderson Silva pours it on, he hits him with this knee and boom,” White stated.
“Walk-off knockouts are awesome — make sure the fight is over. I still haven’t seen exactly what happened, but he hit him with the knee and then walked away. Herb Dean didn’t stop the fight and then the bell rang.”
“If he would have jumped on top of him, he could have finished the fight. He did not, he tried to walk away. It’s crazy,” he added.
Bisping has not only won the biggest victory of his UFC career but is also the second fighter in UFC history to defeat Silva after Chris Weidman.
Praising Bisping, Dana said, “Bisping never backs down from a fight. He’s in your fight from the minute the fight is made until the last bell rings. It’s one of the reasons so many people love to watch him fight and so many people respect him.”
