LONDON – Aside from a last-minute save by main-event winner Michael Bisping, Saturday's UFC 120 card in London wasn't exactly a shining moment for British MMA.

Three of the country's biggest stars – Dan Hardy, John Hathaway and "The Ultimate Fighter 9" winner James Wilks – were easily defeated by their American counterparts in high-profile main-card bouts at The O2.

But UFC president Dana White said the results won't do anything to hurt the growth of the UFC in the U.K.

In fact, he said the sport flourishes with or without regional talent.
