Dana White Says He Doesn’t Know How To Prevent Eye Pokes

Daron Cruickshank suffered two eye pokes, which ultimately led to the fight being ruled a no contest.The topic was brought up during the post fight press conference which isn’t surprising and UFC President Dana White said he simply doesn’t know what to do about the issue.

All White had to say on how to prevent eye poking was the following:

“I don’t know what to do about eye pokes other than referees telling them to close their hands”

White made no mention of a glove redesign which rules out the possibility in the near future. He continued on to say that maybe the punishment for eye pokes should be more severe than a warning and an eventual point deduction and said that maybe it should call for them to lose the round.
