Of course Dana White isn’t happy with the way that the judges scored Diego Sanchez vs. Ross Pearson. Dana White fashions himself as the ultimate fight fan, so in that regard, he usually knows when something really, really crappy happens, which is what happened on Saturday night between Pearson and Sanchez. So yeah, of course Dana White was going to talk about it and he was going to be vocal about how it was a terrible decision. [source]

“It was horrible. In the second round, Diego got dropped and one judge still gave him that round. Insanity, man. Pearson got robbed. Pearson won that fight clearly. He easily won that fight. We have to treat Pearson like he won and give him that next level fight.”

“The thing about our sport is there’s never any of that hometown advantage bulls—. Yeah, more people are going to be cheering for you than the other guy, but it’s not like the judges are all from that town. Usually, athletic commissions pull the best from around the country. Whoever gave that fight all three rounds to Sanchez should never judge a fight again.”
