White told Fox News:

“He’s had ankle issues for the last couple of years. And, he had asked if he could tape his ankles coming into this fight, and he got clearance from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. And then he opted not to tape them, I don’t know why. He has chronic arthritis in his ankles.”
