Dana White said that he was impressed by Fury’s performance and also took a dig at Wilder’s costume and said that UFC doesn’t allow such theatrics.

I think there’s a lot to it. Fury looked awesome,” White told TMZ.

Fury fought a perfect fight. But, if you think about boxing and fights when fighters are getting ready, they’re in the back. They’re relaxing. Some guys sleep. Some guys just lay around and chill. Then you get up, you time it out, do your warm-up. Then you throw something on to stay warm. You don’t put all this gear on and all this stuff. That’s why I don’t do any of that bullshit in the UFC. I don’t like it. I don’t like any of that.”

The reason he lost is ’cause Fury is a bad-ass boxer, and he fought the perfect fight that night and executed his game plan.”
