UFC president Dana White and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren don't have much in common. Saturday night, the two shared the same feeling on the Cheick Kongo-Shawn Jordan contest at UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao.

"BOOOOOOOO!!!!!" White posted on his Twitter account. "Officiating is kicking combat sports right in the NUTS!!! A ref let's 2 guys lay in a clinch against the fence for the last 5 mins of 3rd rd."

Askren, meanwhile, said, "This is more borng than one of my fights." At least the champion showed he has a sense of humor.

White has been critical of Askren's lay-and-pray style of fighting, as the former NCAA wrestling standout has used his grappling to control his competition.

Kongo scored a decision over Jordan, but the fight was booed several times by the Calgary, Alberta, Canada crowd.
