Dana White on the outcome of Ian Machado Garry vs Michael Page

During the recent press conference, Dana White explained why he felt Ian Machado Garry vs Michael Page was a draw.

“Sean [Shelby] and Mick [Maynard] felt that fight would play out exactly the way it did; we talked about it leading up to this fight,” White said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I had that fight a draw".

Dana White justifies his statement

“If [the judges] came out and said that fight was a draw, that’s exactly what I thought that fight was too.

Obviously, Ian won the first round, MVP won the second round, and it was 50/50 in the third round. What was crazy was ‘MVP’ had that top position and he gave it up, He could have just rode that thing out and won the round.

He stood up and gave up that top position”.
