Default Re: White to UFC 152 critics, boo-birds: 'Don't ever buy another UFC pay-per-view aga

He shouldn't have said it, and this yet another example of why he's an unprofessional buffoon who should be muzzled by the Fertittas. However, I agree with the sentiment. The boos in the crowd and the online reaction to the Flyweight title fight were ridiculous. That was an entertaining fight. On some of the MMA websites, people were acting like we saw a five round replay of Starnes/Quarry. I also don't get the hostility that MMA fans have for the smaller guys. Flyweight division in the unified rules is roughly equivalent to Featherweight in boxing. There are a long of Featherweights who are revered and considered to be warrior by boxing fans. I guess that it just comes down to the fact that most of the casual fans in North America are "just bleed" types.
