Dana White Rips Jan Blachowicz-Magomed Ankalaev Fight

UFC president Dana White had seen enough at UFC 282 this past weekend.

The boss was less than impressed by the performances of Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev, who were battling for the vacant light heavyweight title. The fight ended in a split draw, and the sour taste was felt by White, as well.

“I don’t even know,” White said afterwards (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). “I started to zone out after like (expletive) three rounds.

“I heard Ankalaev is upset or whatever. What do you want me to do? You got beat up the first two rounds. You took him to the ground. What are you going to do.”

White opted to move the vacant belt to a fight next month between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill at UFC 283.

“What are you going to do?” he said. “I thought the main event was terrible. What are you going to do? You do Glover vs. Jamahal Hill in Brazil for the vacant title.
