Fans are all saying the same thing as video of Dana White's reaction to Paddy Pimblett result emerges online

A video of Dana White's reaction to the Paddy Pimblett vs. Jared Gordon decision has emerged online amid the controversy of the result.

Pimblett earned his fourth UFC win in a row at UFC 282 as he narrowly outpointed Gordon last Saturday.

The judges scored the bout 29-28 to the Liverpool fighter, with the decision causing uproar among fans and critics alike.

Nate Diaz hit out at the decision as fans couldn't believe the judges' scorecards for the UFC 282 co-main event.

Joe Rogan also cut a shocked figure before interviewing the 27-year-old inside the Octagon.

A clip of the UFC president's reaction to the decision has been shared online too, with fight fans online all saying the same thing.

One Twitter user wrote: "The nod, and everything else about this video just screams 'we paid the judges, don't worry'.

A second tweeted: "It looks veeerrry suspicious."

A third added: "Dana nodded like he already knew. I’m not shocked anymore."

Another commented: "Look at that Dana reaction... tell me it wasn’t rigged."

White ruthlessly critiqued Gordon's gameplan in the third round when he was asked about the scoring during the post-fight press conference.

"Jared Gordon had a terrible gameplan against Paddy Pimblett," he exclaimed. "He shouldn’t have coasted through the third round thinking he was up on the scorecards."

As for Pimblett, he insists he done enough to win the fight, claiming he knew he'd won the first two rounds.

"Opinions are like a***holes, everyone has got one," he said.

“I know I won that fight, simple as. I deal in facts and I won a unanimous decision, it’s not even like it was a split decision.

“Look at his face and look at mine, fights get scored on damage now. I landed a lot more damage, end of.

I knew I’d won the first two [rounds], people don’t have to tell me. When I’ve looked at the stats after the fight, I think I’ve won all three.

"In the cage, I thought that he’d won the third. When they said 29-28, I was like, 'Yeah, good decision. I won the first two, he won the third.'

“Then after looking back at the stats, [he landed] four significant strikes in the third. Control time doesn’t mean jack s**t anymore, do you know what I mean?"

Pimblett, meanwhile, improves his UFC record to 4-0, having beaten Luigi Vendramini, Rodrigo Vargas, Jordan Leavitt and Gordon inside the famed Octagon.
