The MMA world was abuzz on Wednesday after Rashad Evans ill timed comments to opponent Phil Davis when he referenced the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State.
Evans was bantering back and forth with Davis, who was an NCAA champion at Penn State, and they engaged in some normal pre fight trash talk.
Unfortunately, Evans took things too far when he referenced Sandusky and his alleged sexual abuse of several children in his smack talk.
"I guarantee you'll be the first one to take a shot," Evans said. "Cause I'm going to put those hands on you worse than that dude did to them other kids at Penn State."
On Thursday, UFC President Dana White responded to Evans' comments, and he said did talk with the former champion after the presser about the trash talk gone wrong.
"He said something stupid, probably one of the dumbest things you can say. He gets it, he knows it was a stupid thing to say," said White.
White has long stood by the fact that he doesn't police fighters on what they say
