Dana White: Hathaway vs. Maguire just a sh--ty fight

by Matt Erickson | source: mmajunkie.com

"That was the only bad fight on the card tonight," White told MMAjunkie.com. "I was so excited about that fight, too. I thought that fight was going to be really good. They didn't fight. They just stayed in half-guard, and Maguire didn't wake up until the third round."

Hathaway acknowledged that his 30-27 sweep of the judges' scorecards wasn't what it was built up to be.

"He didn't really engage too much," Hathaway said. "I feel bit bad for the fans that they didn't get to enjoy a brawl, but we did fight hard, and I was glad to come away with the win."

"I'm not saying he's not (good)," White said. "And he keeps growing, too. But it was just a s---ty fight."

Wasn't bad, a bit methodical.I could be mistaken, but I think those guys are friends. Could explain the lack of intensity in the fight.

May not have been the best fight, but still rooting for Hathway. At 25, he's still young. Guy was 22 and had already beaten Rick Story and Diego Sanchez. There's a lot of talk about Erick Silva and Rory McDonald in the WW division, but Hathaway will remain a force for years to come imo.

If you are not a big name, you gotta win to stay in this sport. Hathaway is doing just that, I can't hate on him much for doing so. He still moves up the depth chart with a comfortable win.

Are people actually comparing this to the flyweight title fight? How embarrassing... Sorry, DW was right about that fight, and he's right about this fight. If you cried about the flyweight title fight, then you should go back to watching WWF.
