Did I say Dana didn't know how to run a business? Nope, I said he was a poor man's Bob Arum and I said he hasn't got a PPV to go over a million buys since Brock left, which is the truth. 'The biggest fight in UFC history' only got 900,000 buys.

But if you wanna look at the last few years, you'll notice the UFC is in a pretty steep decline as far as North America goes. Ratings and Buys are significantly down, TUF is stale, the FOX deal hasn't lived up to expectations yet and the UFC recently had to cancel it's first ever PPV event.

Not to mention they have people bitching left and right about the Flyweights, Women's division, TRT, and injuries, although they can't control that last one.
