Dana White told UFC Tonight a lot on Tuesday night and here is just one instant of it.
“He wants nothing to do with dos Santos,” White told Helwani. “He’s literally hiding from JDS … but he had no problem calling out Brock Lesnar who hasn’t fought in 2 years and who is in WWE.”
“He fought safe,” White told FOX Sports 1. “I think he could’ve finished him. Not a crowd pleasing fight.
“He comes out with a crappy performance and he calls out a guy who doesn’t even fight anymore. Awesome. Just to top off an awesome night for him, he calls out a guy who doesn’t even fight anymore. So, not a good night for Alistair Overeem.”
Well Overeem had this to say about the comments above:
“I’m hurt,” he said. “Rib problem. So first [I] need an ETA on recovery time. [It] would be unwise to accept any fight before knowing exactly what’s up. [I] wouldn’t want to pull out of any fight [due to] being unfit, especially an anticipated fight as this one.”
Something’s I agree and some things I disagree with what Dana White has to say. In this instant I agree with what he said. Just because you actually won a fight you were supposed to win, does not mean you can call out a guy who is retired.
