UFC President Dana White takes no prisoners and is brutal with his comments if he doesn’t like something during his event. Former UFC champion and legend Anderson Silva is one amongst many who has faced the wrath of Dana White. UFC veteran Clay Guida also got a taste of Dana’s anger in the post fight press conference of UFC Kansas City.
After losing to Rafa Garcia in a hard-fought battle, Clay Guida removed his gloves. This led to Daniel Cormier asking The Carpenter whether he is hanging up his gloves and retiring from the UFC. Guida hyped up the fans at Kansas City and made everyone believe that he is retiring. But moments later he declared that this was all a joke.

“What do you say Kansas City? Let me hear you guys. I tricked you guys. There ain’t no way I’m walking away yet. I want to congratulate this young man Rafa Garcia and I want to ask Rafa Garcia to trade gloves with me because that was a heck of a performance by him.”

“That pi**ed me off actually, to be honest with you. No, that pissed me off. I like him, he’s a nice guy, but you’re faking your retirement so you can say f**king happy birthday to somebody? Yeah, we’re running a live event here, I was not happy about that.”
It is needless to say that Dana White looked upset while talking about Clay Guida in the post-event presser. With that being said, it would be interesting to see whether the UFC President allows Guida to continue fighting in the UFC. Because the UFC veteran is going through a torrid patch and his post-fight antics might not help him make a case to stay.
