The fighters are the UFC Dana wouldn’t be shit 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. Log in to Reply AussieMMA November 23, 2011 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.

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 shit. 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 shit too calling it strikefarce and then not too long later the ufc buys strikeforce.

Some things you should keep to yourself and that was one of them. Log in to Reply Shinka MMA November 24, 2011 like any well systematic business. @AussieMMA 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. Log in to Reply steamachine November 24, 2011 I always stood up for him. Pisses me off when people hate on Dana. I don’t know him personally but, douchebag ******* whatever…the man made the sport what it is. Log in to Reply FailSonnen November 24, 2011 Doesn’t Dana make like 150 million a year or some crap get rid if him and use that $ to pay the fighters more. Log in to Reply joe November 24, 2011 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. Log in to Reply John Boss November 24, 2011 UFC loves their fans, as soon as they throw money into the UFC. Otherwisse, they dont give a shit about you; it’s all about the cash. Log in to Reply wookiepie November 24, 2011 dana is a great ambassador of the sport, but there is no element of the ufc’s success that he gets exclusive credit for. Log in to Reply Jon November 24, 2011 I’ve hung out with Dana and he’s a great guy… if it wasn’t for him you’d all be just masturbating more so quit your whining. Log in to Reply dank November 24, 2011 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. Log in to Reply dank November 24, 2011 oh btw all of you are some crying broke jealous little b i t c h e s!!! Log in to Reply london_Jones November 25, 2011 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! Log in to Reply wcoastassassin November 25, 2011 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. Log in to Reply steamer November 26, 2011 @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. Log in to Reply Get ItOn November 27, 2011 @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! Log in to Reply Tempdeisel December 1, 2011 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.
