In the post-fight press conference, Dana White gave an update on Chris Weidman and said:

“He is stable right now, he will have surgery in the morning”

White also said that he would meet Weidman before he leaves the arena. “It has only happened two times. The irony of that thing is crazy. I am gonna see him before I leave.”

While the MMA fans are praying for the well-being of Chris Weidman and his family a tweet from the UFC president Dana White has got a lot of attention. Dana White posted the video of Chris Weidman and said “The first fighter in UFC history to win without a single strike thrown”.

Fans criticized Dana White for his insensitive tweet on Chris Weidman

Many fans criticized Dana White for this tweet and showed their support to Weidman. However, it has to be considered that there is a big possibility that Dana White is not tweeting the videos during the live event. But, it’s still unfortunate and disrespectful to the former champion.

UFC 261 was a huge success with some great fights. Anthony Smith secured an impressive victory against Jimmy Crute. Rose Namajunas became the first women fighter to regain her UFC title at UFC 261 with a TKO win over Zhang Weili and we saw a dominating win from Valentina Shevchenko. It’s needless to say that the first UFC event with fans was a huge success.
