As it stated in Overall it wasn’t exactly the best night of entertainment, and even Dana White couldn’t stop from being blunt about it.
“I feel that the ref from New York shouldn’t be ref-ing a main event fight.
When asked about the highlight of the event, the UFC president answered that it was “the plane ride home.”He then said the lone bright spot was Miller vs Poirier, but the point was clear.
At UFC 208 on Saturday night, every single fight went to a decision, except for what was basically a tune up fight for Jacare as he waits for his title shot.
He should’ve had one of the experienced MMA refs in there ref-ing the main event.”
