The UFC president tweeted this during their ground-heavy bout, which Carmont won by unanimous decision.
Sorry I just woke up! Thank god that’s over. We decided a shot of @ChrisWeidmanUFC would be more exciting than the end of the fight.
— Dana White (@danawhite) September 22, 2013
The fight, which Carmont dominated early and often, was fought almost entirely on the ground, with Carmont spending approximately 12 minutes in top position. But even though it was a methodical and tactically sound win for the heavily grunting Frenchman, the fans, like White, were nonplussed.
@danawhite this may be the most disappointing fight of the year. I was really looking forward to it.

Carmont might be Canadian, but damn he’s boring.
