if they dont need him get rid of him, and pay the damn fighters more

loquinho you are wrong. The fighters are the UFC Dana wouldn’t be s*** if it wasn’t for them. And everybody is replaceable at any job i didnt even watch this 1 minute clip because he is obviously stating the obvious.

I know it’s just him and I have always loved how he’s not fake at all. But I can’t get that comment he made about not caring what the fans think out of my head. To me, the great thing about the UFC has always been it’s fan friendly nature (free fights for us, match up we wanna see etc.). Stupidly, I kinda thought we were all in this together, building this thing called MMA you know. Dana’s comments now having me feeling a little detached from the sport I have grown to love. I’m sure I’m probably reading to much into his comments, but at the same time, I wish I never heard him say that.

I don’t care what anyone says that ufc/fox event was a major failure and not because of how the fight played out.

It was just too much talking, it should of had more than one fight, the stupid NFL / fox music was out of place, and the whole commentary desk thing seemed awkward.

I like Dana he but we all know he’s a bit full of s***. Rather then pretending ufc on fox was a success and defending it he should just admit they ran with some bad ideas and it didn’t work. The biggest bad idea was the one fight thing because if fox viewers could have seen the guida/henderson fight that would of helped things.

Dana’s good a pretending, he use to pretend strikeforce was s*** too calling it strikefarce and then not too long later the ufc buys strikeforce.

aussieMMA I feel you on that one. After he said that I kept thinking to myself your not helping your own cause comments like that. Some things you should keep to yourself and that was one of them.

like any well systematic business.

In regards to his comment about not caring what the fans thought of the fox fights, I think what he was saying was that there was a bigger picture to take into account, here. That the UFC needs to be introduced to a new generation – he was saying that the fox fights weren’t really for “THE FANS” (the PPV was) the fox fights were for the n00bs. The new n00bs.

I always stood up for him. Pisses me off when people hate on Dana. I don’t know him personally but, douchebag asshole whatever…the man made the sport what it is.

FailSonnen Says, in 11-24-2011 at 03:37:55 from    

Doesn’t Dana make like 150 million a year or some crap get rid if him and use that $ to pay the fighters more.

joe Says, in 11-24-2011 at 05:11:29 from    

If the ufc aspires to become something like the NBA or the NFL, they should get rid of him. he has bee instrumental in building the ufc and bringing it to where it is now, and deserves the respect for that, but now it needs someone more professional IMO. imagine david stern throwing a player out of the NBA because of a personal beef(Tod Dufee) the thing he said ti the camera on FOX further strengthen my point.

UFC loves their fans, as soon as they throw money into the UFC.
Otherwisse, they dont give a s*** about you; it’s all about the cash.

wookiepie Says, in 11-24-2011 at 09:39:33 from    

dana is a great ambassador of the sport, but there is no element of the ufc’s success that he gets exclusive credit for.

Jon Says, in 11-24-2011 at 11:53:10 from    

I’ve hung out with Dana and he’s a great guy… if it wasn’t for him you’d all be just m*********** more so quit your whining.

dank Says, in 11-24-2011 at 18:11:44 from    

dana white is the reason mma is so popular today. give the guy some credit!!! mma fighters should make more and football,baseball,basketball players should make less.

dank Says, in 11-24-2011 at 18:14:37 from    

oh btw all of you are some crying broke jealous little b i t c h e s!!!

F**King sheep….you don’t have to be a master mind to Take MMA world wide..you just need money.it’s fighting you mugs! this is the reason why america is so f**ked…it’s dumb asses like Dana lovers! that love what ever face they see on TV! DDDDRRRRrr!…sheep! Obama can say CHANGE and you will all go for it!…then you will hate him!…then vote in the next guy to lie to you! so keep loving you some Dana…and Dana will keep laughing and getting richer while you break yourself to buy a ticket to see under paid fighters….such sheep!

wcoastassassin Says, in 11-25-2011 at 19:12:18 from    

Yes Dana makes a lot of money, I am sure. I run a very large store, one store, but the busiest Grocery store in the county and that pressure can kill you. Trust me Dana has earned his money and the UFC pays their fighters. This thing is such a young sport if they paid like StrikeForce and some of these others they would be out of business too. Dana got all the legislation passed, the fricken sport was banned. I am pretty amazed at all the hostility.

steamer Says, in 11-26-2011 at 02:57:10 from    

@joe…dude if you think personal beef doesn’t ever weigh in when it comes to major decisions in the NFL, the NBA, the NHL or any other professional national league you are sadly mistaken.

@london_Jones….careful who you call sheep homey. This guy bought up a dying company and invested in named fighters and made a company out of it. If you didn’t like it, you wouldn’t even be commenting here.

Get ItOn Says, in 11-27-2011 at 03:02:31 from    

@london_Jones – Dana White is the reason you came in here and made a silly post so who is the sheep again? BTW, if you’re trolling, you got me haha!

Tempdeisel Says, in 12-1-2011 at 02:35:00 from    

First of all Dana White is a helluva business man. The dude truly built the UFC into the premier MMA organization in the world. I honestly really like listening to what Dana has to say because you can see the passion that he has for this sport and how excited he gets when talking fight match-ups or whenever. Do I think the fighters deserve to be paid more, absolutely. Is MMA still an evolving and growing sport, absolutely. I think the day will come when MMA fighters get to see paychecks.
