Dana White: Alistair Overeem had a 'crappy' performance tonight

UFC Heavyweight, Alistair Overeem, finally got back on the winning track tonight at UFC 169. Overeem dominated Frank Mir for three rounds en route to a decision victory. Overall, the fight was pretty lackluster as Overeem fought incredibly safe. Of course, if Overeem blew out his gas tank by attempting to go for the finish, he could have gotten caught and KO’ed once again.

During the UFC 169 post fight show, Dana White, stated that he believed Overeem’s performance was ‘crappy’. White asserted that Overeem was fighting too safe, and did not look for the finish when he could have. He also was unhappy with Overeem’s post-fight call out of Brock Lesnar White was stupefied that Overeem would call out someone who doesn’t fight in the UFC anymore. White added that is was a bad night for Overeem overall.
