Dana White knows he made a mistake.
Just after the UFC formally apologized for a recent White pulling a judge from a card , UFC President Dana White also said sorry publicly.
This past weekend at UFC Fight Night 48 in Macau, White removed judge Howard Hughes after only two fights.
Today, the UFC acknowledged a “a breach of its independent regulatory protocol” at the Aug. 23 event and formally apologized to Hughes. It “vows that no similar breach of protocol will happen again.”
At a media scrum that followed today’s UFC 180 press conference in Mexico City, White explained the situation.
“It’s no secret how fired up I get when there’s bad judging, but I have to apologize to judge Hughes,” said White. “I did get some misinformation. He didn’t score the second fight 30-27 for the fighter from China. And yeah, I got a little crazy, and I overstepped my bounds. It’s not the first time, and hopefully that’s the last time I’ll ever do that. I was wrong.”
