UFC chief Dana White spoke plainly when discussing Deontay Wilder’s costume catastrophe.

Tyson Fury had a stunning win over Wilder. The Gypsy King dropped the American in the third and fifth rounds before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh session.

Wilder has blamed the 40-pound costume he wore on his way to the ring for making his legs heavy.

Speaking to TMZ recently, Whyte said: “I think there’s a lot to it. Fury looked awesome” Fury fought a perfect fight. But, if you think about boxing and fights when fighters are getting ready, they’re in the back. They’re relaxing. Some guys sleep. Some guys just lay around and chill.

“Then you get up, you time it out, do your warm-up. Then you throw something on to stay warm. You don’t put all this gear on and all this stuff. That’s why I don’t do any of that bulls**t in the UFC. I don’t like it. I don’t like any of that.”
