Ariel Helwani spoke to UFC president Dana White on the FUEL TV post-fight show to get his reaction to the UFC on FX 4 main event between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida. While there might have been plenty of post-fight debate on Twitter, White saw no such controversy. He blasted Guida's performance and his game plan, saying, "Some goof put in his head that running around in circles might win him the fight, and they were dead wrong."

White also had strong words for the judges who saw it as a 48-47 split decision for Maynard. They had the right fighter winning, White said, but "how they had that fight that was a blowout by Gray Maynard."

According to White, Guida's strategy in the fight was his undoing right from the start. "You don’t win a fight by running, ever," White told Helwani, before adding that he was pleased to see referee Dan Miragliotta halt the fight in the fifth round to issue Guida a warning for timidity. "That’s what they’re supposed to do."
