White 'embarrassed' by Silva's performance

New, 26 comments

Anderson Silva's performance upset Dana White so much that he left the fight after the fourth round, he told's Ariel Helwani.

Said White:

"I left in the fourth round and gave the belt to Ed (Soares) and said, 'You put (the belt) on him, I'm not doing it.' ...

"I don't know why he acted the way he did. What's even more baffling is that he feels that he doesn't owe the fans an apology. Yet I'm apologizing. I didn't go in and fight like a jackass for five rounds. I didn't do what he did tonight. I'm embarrassed and I feel like I should apologize to the fans and I feel like I owe the fans one."
