“Tyson won the fight,” White said at the UFC Vegas 15 post-fight press conference (via Mike Bohn & John Morgan of MMA Junkie).

Tyson fought for the first time in over a decade last night, while Jones Jr. competed for the first time in over two years.

The UFC President also says Tyson looked a lot better in the ring than Jones Jr. did.

“I didn’t want to say anything negative because I love Tyson and he’s a good friend of mine,” White said. “I was nervous. He’s (54) years old. Time is undefeated. Time takes us all down and one of the things I was worried for Mike is that he has this incredible aura still, and (54) years old – fighting is young man’s game. All that being said, he looked (expletive) awesome tonight. I was blown away by how good he looked. One of the things I was worried about with Roy – Roy’s 51 years old, but Roy’s been way more active than Tyson has been. But Roy actually got way more tired tonight than Mike, which was shocking. I’m happy for him. I hope they both made a (expletive) zillion dollars, and it exceeded my expectations.”
