"These guys are giving out 10-8 rounds like f**king... there were two rounds in that fight that they gave a 10-8.

"When I came up in the fight business, a 10-8 was an a**-whooping. You got your a** whooped.

Israel Adesanya Given Lengthy Medical Suspension Following UFC 259 Defeat

"You didn't do sh*t in that round and got beat down if it was a 10-8. They've gotta stop giving... this 10-8 sh*t is out of control right now.

"So, hopefully we can get this fixed... they're going to screw up a lot of fights if they're handing out 10-8s like that - there was no 10-8 in that fight."

White continued by claiming judges are getting bad advice: "For some reason these guys are scoring 10-8s for rounds that are clearly not 10-8s.

"It's the criteria they're giving them right now. They're getting some bad advice."

Adesanya only won one round across the judges' scorecards as he suffered his first MMA defeat of his career.
