Should UFC's Dana White apologize to Tyron Woodley?

Tyron Woodley demanded an apology from UFC President Dana White, who criticized Woodley’s performance at UFC 214. White also said the match between Woodley and UFC legend Georges St-Pierre is off the table. White was only echoing the crowd’s disappointment and critiquing Woodley after a lackluster fight was fair. However, Woodley suffered a torn labrum in the opening round, and White should have supported his fighter more. What do you think? 👊

There is no sugarcoating it—Tyron Woodley's fight was boring. When someone is as physically dominating as Woodley, they should have no problem finishing fights, and entertaining the crowd. Instead, Woodley danced around and ended up with the fewest punches thrown in a five-round fight. If your job is to fight, you shouldn't be surprised when people boo that kind of performance.

The UFC is a business. Dana White is charged with making sure that business is successful. The business is not successful if fighters don't entertain the crowd. Woodley might not like it, but White was right to criticize him. Maybe Woodley needs to look at himself, and solve his own problems before demanding an apology.

Dana White talks about fights like he's stepped into the octagon himself with hundreds of thousands of dollar on the line. Despite tearing his labrum, Tyron Woodley continued to fight and rocked Demian Maia with big shots. He also stuffed all 21 takedown attempts from one of the best jiu jitsu practitioners in the division. 

After suffering the injury, Woodley followed a perfect game plan and did his job by winning the fight. He was just doing whatever he could to leave the Honda Center as a champion.

White's job is to promote the company—that includes his fighters. If the UFC loses money because of this fight, it's White's fault for not supporting Woodley, and failing to frame the fight positively. White needs to apologize and give the fans the Woodley-St. Pierre fight they deserve.
