Video: Dana White breaks down UFC 188, not ready to crown Fabricio Werdum GOAT

Dive in to hear why the UFC president isn't so quick to label "Vai Cavalo" the greatest heavyweight of all time following his upset win over Cain Velasquez and much more.

UFC 188, which went down last night (Sat., June 13, 2015) from Arena Ciudad in Mexico City, Mexico, provided fight fans with a memorable night of fights.

In the main event of the evening, Fabricio Werdum proved he's "the baddest man on the planet" after submitting Cain Velasquez with a slick guillotine in the third round of their heavyweight title unification fight (video replay here).

In the co-main event , Eddie Alvarez dug deep to pull out a controversial split-decision victory over Gilbert Melendez, who did his best to prevent Eddie from seeing the whole fight after one of his elbows connected cleanly on Alvarez's eye socket.

The result? Well, see for yourself.

Also, Yair Rodriguez proved to be a star in the making thanks to his "Fight of the Night" performance against Charles Rosa, who proved to be game during the back-and-forth featherweight affair. It wasn't enough, as Yair managed to pull out the razor-thin split-decision win (recap).

If you didn't catch the pay-per-view (PPV) event, no worries, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White spoke to FOX Sports immediately after the main event fight to discuss the memorable event.

So click play in the video player above to here why the UFC head honcho isn't so quick to call Werdum the "greatest of all time," why he believes Alvarez deserved the win, and why he was dazzled by Yair's performance -- which came despite the fact that he was battling food poisoning -- and much, much more.
