Dana has done plenty of harm as well. Sure he deserve credit for his part in growing the sport but so do fighters like Rampage. I'm at the point right now where I'm not sure if Dana is still productive for the sport. He certainly isn't the never makes a bad call God that many of the casual Joes bleive him to be. The man makes many, many questionable moves these days and whether or not he likes you is way too big of a factor in the sport.
The fighters pay is up but not as up as it should be. The fighters rights are getting better but still not what it should be. He played his part in raping and destroying a fantastic brand that was SF. His beef with Showtime and his ego ruined a terrific product that could have been so much more. He gets enough praise from far too many people. He needs to catch more shit IMO. Dude is far from perfect.
I disagree. Dana has earned the right to do whatever he wants when it comes to the UFC. Without him and the fertitas the vast majority of us wouldn't even know what MMA was.
