The post-fight press conference took place at Concert Arena on Yas
Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, the same venue that played
host to Saturday’s event with a pay-per-view headliner of UFC
middleweight champion Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia. Dana White was very pissed off at Silva’s performance and embarrassed for the UFC fans and the sport. He mentioned he was very upset with all 5 rounds of the fight claiming Silva was just showing off instead of just ending the fight with a knockout. Dana White calls it showboating and feels that Silva does not deserve to fight a true champion like GSP.
Anderson Silva claims Maia disrespected him and he wanted to punish him in the fight by not finishing the fight when he had the chance but instead lets the punishment go the full 5 rounds to teach him a lesson.
Silva refuses to make any apologies.
