UFC President Dana White took the time to speak with the media following the UFC 164 event that took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. White spoke about the knee injury Anthony Pettis suffered in his main event win over Ben Henderson to become the new UFC lightweight champion. He talked about Josh Barnett’s win over Frank Mir, and more about UFC plans for the rest of the year.
In a battle between two of the UFC’s young guns at featherweight, Dustin Poirier and Erik Koch put on a show to kick off the main card of UFC 164. After dropping Koch early, Poirier survived a near fight-ending triangle choke attempt to seize control of the bout on his way to a unanimous decision victory.
