UFC president Dana White fielded questions from the assembled media following The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale post-fight press conference.

Among other topics he talked about the split decision loss of Uriah Hall to Kelvin Gastelum in the TUF Final (transcribed by MMA Fighting):

"I didn't think he showboated. I think he mentally broke," White said. "I think that you saw what he had this season. But when you find out what a guy really has is when he's under pressure. When you're under pressure, you find out who the Anderson Silva's and the Georges St-Pierre's are, those type of guys."

"He's got a lot of skills, and his wrestling looked really good tonight. Everything looked good tonight," White said in closing. "He's just got to work on his head. I just told him, ‘You gotta get that head straight, man. You've got to get meaner. You're not mean enough.'"
