Although it’s been three days since witnessing Brock Lesnar post a come-from-behind submission victory over Shane Carwin, UFC president Dana White is still beaming over the heavyweight unification title bout.
“This is the best night of my career, ever,” White emphatically told MMAFighting.com. “I don’t know if I have ever felt this way about fights. It was a great night. Every fight was dynamite. These guys came out and gave 110 percent. I always feel like a goof when I say this about grown men, but I’m proud of all these guys tonight. They delivered.
“This was a great night for me.”
Out of the 11-bout lineup, four fights went to the judges’ scorecards. However, half of those were split decisions and one unanimous rendering was George Sotiropoulos’ highly entertaining lightweight tussle with Kurt Pellegrino. Every other bout ended with a spectacular finish.
It was a great way to end a rocky three-month stretch, which featured UFC 111 and UFC 112 – admittedly, two of the biggest duds in company history.
UFC 117 is on deck and will feature Anderson Silva. He’s the reason UFC 112 bombed.
