Dana White wasn’t happy with the headliner of UFC 248 and he expressed his feelings to the media after the fight.
Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero met in a middleweight title bout at the UFC 248 pay-per-view event on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada at the T-Mobile Arena.
The fight sucked with the champion successfully retaining the title.
“When I’m sitting here today talking about this, the matchmakers didn’t love that fight and didn’t want to make that fight,” White told reporters at the post-fight news conference. “They didn’t want to make Romero vs. Adesanya, but the goofy fan in me said, ‘Are you sh*tting me? Come on, this will be a fun fight to do. And the fact that (Adesanya) wants to fight a guy that nobody else wants to fight.’ Now hindsight is 20/20, probably shouldn’t have done that fight and should’ve waited for (Paulo) Costa, but oh well, we did it.”
