UFC president Dana White had some very harsh words for Holly Holm’s trainer following her shocking defeat to Miesha Tate at UFC 196.

“The sad part about that is, listen, he’s an old boxing guy who thinks he’s smart, and he’s not. It’s one of those things. I feel bad about it. I feel bad for Holly. I don’t know if Holly really knows what she lost. I think she has so much faith in the people that surround her, she feels like, ‘Well, they got me this far.'” White said on ESPN’s Russillo & Kanell about Holm’s manager Lenny Fresquez.

Of course Holm wasn’t immune from White’s criticism of how the fight against Tate went down. (RELATED: This Sexy Photo Of Ronda Rousey Is Going To Break The Internet)

“We had this meeting, and Holly wasn’t even in it. Holly, that’s your life. You should be in that meeting. Don’t leave it to these people,” he added. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate Ronda Rousey’s Birthday With These Sexy Photos)

Holm rose to superstardom essentially overnight after beating Ronda Rousey UFC, but the UFC lost out on millions after Holm refused to wait for what would have been the most anticipated rematch in UFC history. (VIDEO: WATCH Ronda Rousey Get Knocked Out At UFC 193)

ESPN reporter Darren Rovell has pointed out how Holm not getting a rematch with Rousey is a nightmare scenario for the UFC and White.

It is now highly likely that Miesha Tate will fight Rousey in November according to White. (VIDEO: UFC President Dana White Has Finally Revealed If Ronda Rousey Will Ever Fight Again)
