This is exatly what Gary Shaw bitched Dana out for though. He said that Dana wasn't looking out for the best interest of the fighter by not cross promoting. Now what would be better for Diaz, fighting in EliteXC or Dream? Its got to be dream but because that could mess with Shaw's plans he aexed Diaz going to fight in Dream. It seems to me at least that he is pretty much doing what he said Dana was doing.
