UFC 149 went down this past Saturday night in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The card was not only criticized by the local fans, but UFC President Dana White had some choice words about it as well.
The post-fight press conference had more interesting moments in it, than the UFC 149 main card itself. The most significant was when Matt Riddle went off on his experience fighting in the UK and Dana White playing ‘therapist’.
Below are highlights from the UFC 149 post-fight press conference thanks to UFC.com.

Many believed that UFC 149 was going to break records when the card was first announced, but with the changes to the card it was unknown.
