UFC President Dana White was joined by a special guest on the front row of UFC London. Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn sat in the front row to witness one of the biggest Fight Night events organized by the UFC.
It’s not common for anyone in the boxing world to come live to see an “unethical” MMA fight. People in “gentleman’s sport” rarely appreciate the greatness that exists in mixed martial arts. However, Dana White can proudly boast that he has the approval of legendary boxing promoter Eddie Hearn when the two meet at UFC Fight Night 204.
UFC London took place at the O2 Arena last weekend with 17,000 fans going mad over the insane fight card. In the front row, Eddie and his fighter, Anthony Joshua sat and enjoyed one of the biggest Fight Night events in the history of the promotion. In the post-fight press conference, Dana was asked about the meeting and the boss gave the media a glimpse.
“No, not just a guest. We’re friends and I really like Eddie and he finally got the opportunity to do it.” said Dana in the press conference. Watch White’s full press conference at UFC Fight Night 204 below:

At the press conference, Dana said his friends from the boxing world were absolutely shocked after witnessing such a fight card. “They were all blown away. They said, ‘This is our first MMA fight, so amazing.’ They had a great time” White said of Eddie and Joshua watching the fights.
