Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White is a noted boxing fan who supports the sport that some feel comes in direct competition to his own. He makes sure to watch all the big money fights and has even helped promote them (in a roundabout way) on his Twitter account.
That's also the place he goes to express himself whenever he feels strongly about something and that's what he did last night (Sat., June 9, 2012) when the judges scorecards came in and awarded Timothy Bradley a split decision victory over Manny Pacquiao.
White didn't mince words and went straight after the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC):
Nevada state athletic commission at its finest!!! Youve for to be fucking kidding me!! that is disgusting Nevada state athletic commission!! Worst athletic commission in the country!!!!!!!!!!!!
Trending topics on Twitter seem to support his general stance and few seem to be happy about the decision in this fight, especially considering it likely kills the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao superfight casual fans were still drooling over.
Even rapper/actor/pimp Snoop Dogg decided he was done with boxing and would be sticking with the UFC from here on out:
Ain't that sum bullshit. Boxing is a wrap. Going back on that ultimate fighting.
That's ignoring the obvious fact that MMA has had its share of controversial decisions but either way the point stands. Folks aren't happy at the result of last night's showdown. Are you?
