Video: Dana White thinks Edgar beat Henderson; discusses idea of possible rematch

UFC President Dana White shares his thoughts on the UFC 144 light heavyweight championship main event between Frankie Edgar and Benson Henderson. White says he had the fight even going into the fifth round and then scored the final round for Edgar. He also discusses the idea of a possible rematch between Edgar and Henderson.

And for what it’s worth White also points out that UFC matchmaker Joe Silva thought Henderson won by a landslide. You can read’s own UFC 144 play-by-play commentary to see how we scored it. But what do you think, did you feel the judges got it right and does Edgar deserve a rematch?

White also discusses Rampage Jackson’s situation, him missing weight and questions his motivation and desire. Asked if he thinks we will see Rampage back in the Octagon again, White says yes but also says he wants to see the old Rampage and wants to see him stop being so one-dimensional in his fights. Finally, the UFC President shares his overall thoughts on the UFC’s return to Japan now that UFC 144 is in the books.

  • Dana White either drank too much sake or it’s time for him to visit the optician. Benson Henderson dominated Frankie Edgar for five rounds, giving Frankie a terrible beating.

    Frankie’s movement and pitter-patter punches correctly amounted to very little on the judges scorecards. Immediate rematch? Good grief, that fight wasn’t even close. Frankie’s a tough guy but he should go to back of the line.

    Hahaha a terrible beating, sure.

  • Edub…is that you (Evan) on Lowkick?

  • edub

    Yea, that’s me man.

  • @edub

    I see you missed the fight. Have a look at the beating Frankie Edgar took.

  • edub

    Hmmmm… looks just like the picture of him after both Maynard fights, or Chael Sonnen after the Anderson SIlva fight, Fedor Emelianenko after the Cro Cop fight…

  • ok…good stuff partna!

  • Yes, he took the worst beating of his MMA career. Running and pitter-patter was no way to defend his title against a beast like Benson Henderson.
