Dana White Not Happy with Swedish MMA Federation, but Intends Return to Sweden (video)

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Dana White UFC on Fox 6“There’s no doubt about it, the commission here did a horrible job with this fight,” said UFC president Dana White during the UFC on Fuel TV 9 post-fight show, criticizing the Swedish MMA Federation’s handling of the cut over the eye of scheduled main eventer Alexander Gustafsson. The SMMAF nixed Gustafsson’s participation on Tuesday, just four days prior to the event.

“I don’t want to smash this commission here,” he continued, “but the reality is they’re very inexperienced. Not only are they inexperienced, the doctor is inexperienced in fights. This isn’t Las Vegas or New Jersey or California where tons of fights happen all the time.

“They did a great job the first time we came here, so hopefully they’ll get back on the wagon.”

White later mentioned at the post-fight press conference that the SMMAF’s handling  of the situation wouldn’t preclude the promotion from returning to Sweden.

    5. and now…the Swedish MMA Federation

    Classic divide and conquer plan…..Dana doesn’t want to deal with groups of fighters. He wants to deal with each fighter individually…WHY?????
