He said, "there was no bite I was controlling him with my head and he was trying to get me off by putting his hand in my mouth so I was trying to spit his hand out and as I was spitting it out his finger caught one of my teeth and so maybe he was tired so he decided that way to kind of call that there was a bite but there wasn’t a bite he just was tired because a young Eagle was pressuring him he felt the pressure of a young eagle and it seemed like the people looking at the replay didn’t see a bite.”

Dana White during a recent interview revealed that there is a backup fighter for the UFC 285 main event. He said, “We always have backups for those kinds of fights.” And considering the immensity of the card and not just this particular bout, it would be foolish of the UFC to risk losing the main event if something unexpected did come up.
