After Timothy Bradley posted a split decision victory over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, most mixed martial arts enthusiasts assumed UFC president Dana White (Pictured) would be doing “YES! cartwheels” because the highly controversial verdict likely marked the beginning of the end for boxing.
However, instead of kicking dirt on his combat sport rival’s grave, White put his “Pacman” fanboy cap on and blasted the Nevada State Athletic Commission for allowing yet another blockbuster boxing bout to reek of conspiracy.
“Nevada state athletic commission at its finest!!! Youve [got] to be [expletive] kidding me!! that is disgusting Nevada state athletic commission!!” White tweeted immediately after the dubious scores were read. “Worst athletic commission in the country!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Judges CJ Ross and Duane Ford awarded Bradley with a 115-113 victory, while Jerry Roth had Pacquiao winning by the same tally. White clearly agreed with Roth and most of the fans packed inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
However, White wasn’t the only one irate over dropping $54.95 on last night’s pay-per-view broadcast. A couple of rappers felt Bradley’s robbery was the final nail in boxing’s coffin.
“Ain’t that sum [BS]. Boxing is a wrap. Going bacc on that ultimate fighting,” Snoop Dogg posted on his Twiter.
T.I. also decided it was time to hop aboard the Octagon’s bandwagon by writing, “Wow… UFC…”
Pacquiao didn’t appear to be quite as upset as the rest of the world. He ended Saturday’s post-fight press conference by stating, “Don’t be discouraged about boxing now. Next time.”
Yeah, if there will be a next time…
