This was the case of Dana being Dana. Much like how he said he was going to fire Anderson after the Demian fight. I still think that was a hilarious fight. He COMPLETELY schooled em for the first three rounds and showed us how to "cruise" the last two. That was more or less a demonstration of trolling.
Anyways I agree he definitely should have toned down his rhetoric. After doing some thinking. I'd feel pretty discouraged and pissed hearing that from em especially being the company man he is.
So, it's a big middle finger to the org. If Hendricks won I would have lived with it. But this way he can leave on a high note which is extremely rare in sports these days. If he comes back his PPVS will be stronger than ever.
Rory should have handled his biz against Robbie then I'm sure he'd be contending for the belt. That was the plan all along.
That explains why he stormed out of the ring after that loss. When he lost to Condit he was very humble in defeat, but against Lawler, he was visibly upset. Don't blame him, but it makes sense that they probably thought he would win and they probably all knew gsp was going to take a break.
