Dana White Praises Kimbo Slice And Criticises Houston Alexanders Tactics

Dana White was absent from the post-fight conference for The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 finale, so until now his thoughts on the event have not been known. In a new telephone interview with Yahoo! Sports, Dana spoke about one the most talked about fights on the card, Kimbo Slice Vs Houston Alexander

It appears that he, like everyone else watching, was baffled by Alexander’s circling tactics during the fight.

“I don’t know what Houston Alexander’s corner was doing, but that was the worst game plan they could have ever come up with. I am not sure if Kalib Starnes was training him or what, but that wasn’t the Houston Alexander I had seen fight before.”

It is widely believed that Alexander will now be cut from the UFC’s roster after falling to his 4th consecutive defeat in the promotion, though there has been no official confirmation as yet.

As for Kimbo Slice, despite being critical of the brawler in the past, Dana gave him respect for the manner in which he came to earn his first victory in the UFC.

“I don’t think I have to apologize to Kimbo. I helped him. I said what I did and he did the thing athletes do: He went out there and he worked and he made himself better. He deserves credit. He took me up on the offer I made, did what he had to do and went out and beat a legitimate UFC fighter.”
