However, the post-fight headlines were dominated by the chaotic scene that unfolded among the spectators. Dana White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, expressed astonishment at the incident.

“The fight in the crowd doesn’t look good for the UFC? That never happens. That literally never happens,” White remarked. “It happened here in Mexico City.
The crazy thing about that fight, when that fight broke out, it felt like it kept going forever. So I ran over there and was watching it. Nobody stopped it. I was waiting for security to come in. They just let them go until it was over."

White continued,

"That was one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. I don’t think it’s a bad look for the UFC. It happened and that was the end of that. I think after everybody saw the end of that sht, nobody else wanted to try that again. No security. The fight just went on until it was over. I’ve never seen any sht like that in my life.”
