Please keep refreshing this page as we are updating the presser notes:
UFC president Dana White was shocked the main event went five rounds. Thought Cain Velasquez could have stopped the fight at any point after the 2ndRound.
White heard (not confirmed) Junior dos Santos broke his jaw at some point, but kept competing. Dos Santos is headed to the hospital and won’t attempt presser.
He’s open to arranging a rubber match, but noted this scrap was pretty one-sided so dos Santos will likely have to take another fight.
Jim Miller admits the heel hook submission attempt Joe Lauzon caught him in at the end was very close.
White admitted the Garcia vs. Holloway fight was very difficult to score.
White confirmed if Michael Bisping beat Vitor Belfort, he’ll get next shot at the middleweight title.
White confirmed the UFC will not cut Garcia, despite his four straight losses.
