UFC 173 full video interview with Dana White gushing over 'unbelievable' main event between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao

"Everybody has that day when they get out of bed and it's just not their day. Renan Barao ... his day came today." -- Dana White

"Dillashaw put on an unbelievable performance. At the end of the day I'm a huge fight fan. The whole card was awesome, the Dillashaw-Barao fight was unbelievable. When you're a fight fan, you're so lucky to be able to have these types of moments. It was amazing."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White -- while perhaps not as complimentary as UFC color commentator Joe Rogan -- was still pretty enamored with the UFC 173 main event between Renan Barao and TJ Dillashaw (watch it), which saw "The Viper" leave the MGM Grand Garden Arena last Saturday night (May 24, 2014) as newwwwww UFC bantamweight champion. White now has to sit down and figure out if Barao gets an immediate rematch, or if he gives streaking contender Raphael Assuncao the next 135-pound title shot, since the Brazilian already holds a win over Dillashaw from their bantamweight barnburner last October. Do you, as a fight fan, have a preference? And where does Dominick Cruz (and this promise) fit into the equation? Opinions, please.
