Quoteworthy:

"I'm the first one to blast a referee or judge for making bad calls, but in my opinion, referees aren't looking at the time -- they couldn't give a shit what time it is or how much time is left. They're there to protect the fighters. Rory's a young guy, he's got a lot of fights ahead of him and he took a lot of damage in that last round. I didn't have any problem with the stoppage. It's just unfortunate when a fight stops with seconds left, you know? It's just one of those things, but you won't hear me bitching about that one."

UFC President Dana White shares his two cents on the questionable stoppage in the fight between Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald at UFC 115 from the GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on June 12. It came with just seven seconds remaining in the 15-minute welterweight bout after the previously undefeated Canadian prodigy turned in a very solid first two rounds. In fact, Condit admitted afterward that he felt like he was behind on the scorecards and needed to take out MacDonald to ensure victory. Mission accomplished. For what it's worth, MacDonald also admitted that he was not bitter about the referee's decision to stop the fight when he did. What say you ... did the referee do MacDonald a favor after watching him get abused for basically the entire final round or would you have liked to have heard what the judges sitting ringside had to say instead?
