From top to bottom, Dana White was a big fan of how UFC on FUEL TV 5 had turned out.

It was the promotion's debut in Nottingham, England, and mid-week, the UFC president said he could throw a dart at a board and that fight could wind up being the "Fight of the Night" winner.

After Saturday's card, White's early feelings were confirmed. That is, until he was reminded of one fight in particular.

If that was the worst fight of the night Dana should be stoked.

I didn't see how that fight looked good on paper. 6 decisions endings for Hathaway in his last 6 fights. Maguire mainly a submission guy.

But, Dana likes to complain.

Dana bitching just to bitch. Funny he talks shit on the people who booed Barao-Faber and Johnson-Benavidez, but says this fight was horrible.

I thought it was a great fight, decision or not.

I disagree with Dana, there was 2 boring fights, Hathaway/Maguire and Hardy/Sadollah!

Maybe it's because I'm a Hardy fan but I didn't think it was that bad. Sure we expected both to trade all fight but Hardy showing a new side to his fight game was great to see. Obviously it needs work but the fact he is willing to evolve is good for his career.

For me that was a pointless fight. Hardy was facing a fighter who lost his last fight to an opponent who Hardy beat on his last fight (Ludwig) anything less then Hardy making a statement was disapointing IMO!

There should be a rule that states
Hathaway and sandollah both need to stay off main cards

I clicked the link thinking he was going to call out the shotty reffing & shitty judging for the Ogle-Akira fight. I mean the dude landed a hard slug after the bell & intential or not the ref should have atleast acknowledged it! PLUS Ogle was super robbed. BUT NOOOO Dana bitching for the sake of bitching again. Dude needs a tampon or two.

Huh....


I actually found both fights very entertaining.

The only one I didn't like was Che Mills vs Ludwig. But you can't really blame either guy for that one.

What I thought was crazy is that was Amir Sadollah's second time he was the Co-Main event.
The 1st one was when he fought Jorge Lopez. When Cerrone and Stephens should have been in the Co-Main.
I bet Amir will not be in any more Co-main's ever again.

This. Dana isn't lamenting about a guy who had an unfortunate injury that ruined the fight and all of his preparation but is lamenting at a fight he thought was boring? Sorry bro, not every fight is going to be crazy insane and taking it out on the guys who put it out there looks childish. I'm becoming very anti Dana lately with his BS business practices that take a toll on his employees and the product (the fighters). I agree with whoever said that nowhere on paper did this fight look like it would be a barnburner.
