Dana White has voiced his displeasure with Jared Gordon for pulling out of UFC Vegas 74 at the eleventh hour, citing the surprising news that he had suffered a concussion only two days before their bout was set to take place. Gordon was supposed to battle Jim Miller.
The lightweight veteran caused a sensation when he acknowledged having received a concussion during his no-contest battle against Bobby Green at UFC Vegas 71. The event, which took place on the media day for UFC Vegas 74, took place in Las Vegas.

Just one day before the event, the battle that 13 ‘Flash’ was supposed to compete in was canceled, and newcomer Jesse Butler was brought in to take his place. During the post-fight news conference for UFC Vegas 74, Dana White addressed the issue, and he expressed his dissatisfaction with the predicament that Jared Gordon is currently in. The President of the UFC made these remarks:
“You are finished when you come in here on press day and say that you suffered a concussion six weeks ago and that you cured yourself from the concussion. We are not going to allow you fight with a concussion; absolutely, we pulled them because he should have told us that six weeks ago.” “We are not going to let you fight with a concussion.”
You ought to have showed at least the company and your competitor some respect, and you ought to have done so at least six weeks ago. You are not a doctor, you f*cking scumbag. You did not recover from a concussion through your own efforts. When it comes to injuries, you have to be very forthright.
Dana White reveals fight between Alex Caceres and Daniel Pineda prompted him to hurry backstage
Dana White was so enthralled by the bout that took place between Alex Caceres and Daniel Pineda at UFC Vegas 74 that he hurried backstage as soon as the fight was over. The fight was the co-main event.
Both competitors displayed their prowess and put on a thrilling show that left the spectators feeling giddy with excitement. Despite the fact that both men had brilliant moments during the fight, it was eventually “Bruce Leeroy” who gained the victory by impressing the judges and receiving their unanimous decision after 15 minutes of fierce action. As part of the ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, Caceres and Pineda were each awarded an additional 50,000 dollars.
During the post-fight news conference, White claimed that immediately after the fight ended, he enthusiastically made his way backstage to individually talk with both fighters:
“After that fight, I f**ing raced back there to talk to both of those guys. I mean, when you look at the fcking bodyshots that he took in that fight and still stayed in there, I mean, how the f*cking tough is he, number one, and how good did Caceres look?” [from three o’clock on]
