UFC President Dana White responded harshly when asked about the crowd booing tonight’s flyweight title fight. Challengers Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez put on a fast-paced and technical affair in their five round title fight – which netted Johnson the flyweight strap – but the crowd was apparently unsatisfied with their performance and a chorus of boos were heard throughout the fight. White responded to those that were unsatisfied in the post-fight press conference.
“If you didn’t like that flyweight fight, do me a favor and don’t buy another ppv. You’re a moron, I don’t want your money”
The lower weight classes have had a hard time gaining traction in terms of viewership but it is hard to deny the level of technical proficiency and non-stop action exhibited by the lower weight classes. White is clearly committed to the growing these divisions and made it clear that those opposed to the division are not welcome in the promotion’s fan base.
