Dana White Discusses UFC On FX: Maynard Vs. Guida Post-Show

UFC president Dana White uses Twitter to let the MMA world know just how he feels about certain subjects.

Well, Friday night, during UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida, it was quite evident White was none-too-happy with how Clay Guida was going about fighting Gray Maynard. “The Carpenter” used a hit-and-run style that left White very upset, as he told Ariel Helwani during the post-fight show on FUEL TV.

I am not a trainer or a corner man for anybody, but after being around I know you don’t want to fight by running. And I saw a lot of Guida fans on Twitter saying, ‘great footwork.’ But, this guy is one of those guys who is always in your face, aggressive, and wears you out or goes out on a shield. He is one of those guys. But, some goof put it in his head that running around in circles would win him the fight and he lost. I don’t know how they rated that fight? It was clearly a blowout by Maynard.

As for “The Bully,” White said, “It is hard to tell how a guy looks when you’re fighting a guy who is running around for five rounds.” Maynard rebounded from his first career loss to Frankie Edgar last year with the split decision victory.

The UFC was making a return to Atlantic City for the first time in several years, helping open up the brand-new Revel casino.

This isn’t how I wanted to come back to Atlantic City. The crowd was fired up. The fans went from Guida fans to Maynard fans; not exactly how I was expecting to come back. I would have bet anything that this fight would have been exciting.
