1st how do you think dana lost the argument? lol He totally exposed PRIDE's Problems in not haven PPV spots in America and showing how they DID get kicked off Japanesse TV (which is true). He also had a resonable excuse for every statement that Miller had against him, Dana right now has a gem, why would you take a gem and cover it in mud?

His money growth is expanding over boxing and PRIDE right now has no air time.

Hardcore MMA fans may know pride but home watchers who just like to watch the shows on TV and watch TUF don't have any clue at PRIDE other then what they've heard from friends probably.

2nd Why would you say cages are pathedic? because the fighter has to learn some sort of ground game and can't back under a rope and get a reset. Any fighter knows the obvious advantages from Ring vs Cage, the only people who don't like cages are strikers, because they have to learn alot more takedown defence and have a much better ground game.
I've been fighting for the last 2 years of my life and training for about the last 6 or 7 roughly. I'd love to fight anyone who thinks the cage is just for sissys and its just for lay and pray people.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I back this man up. Great post brother.

Dana White is the winner of this arguement.

All Pride does is complain. Sure, they pay fighters better, but if they really wanted to have the fight they would send over Wand by now.

Dana did his share. He sent over Chuck. Its Japan's turn, and yet the stagger.

Marcus Aurelio .vs. Kenny Florian? That is completely lopsided, Marcus Aurelio would destroy Kenny.

I know, but he's sort of in the same position as KenFlo. They both have a shot at being lightweight champion (well, Aurelio doesn't anymore, after his loss) and they both have almost no shot at winning.

wait wait wait... you're saying that in the UFC, there's more of a ground game than in PRIDE because of the cage? are you serious? all the cage does is provide a wall for people like hughes to push people up against and rain elbows down on... are you really saying that the UFC has a more in depth ground game than PRIDE??? wow... you've obviously never seen PRIDE cause nobody just goes out the ropes in PRIDE to escape, since if that happens, they're restarted in the same position in the middle of the ring. you can't escape a position in PRIDE by doing that. you have obviously never seen a single PRIDE fight!!!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

I agree they both need to put up or shut up. What I thought made Dana look so bad is when Millen asked what happened between now and UFC 61 to make Wand/Chuck not happen other than Silva got executed, Dana completly changed the subject. We all know there is no shame in getting beat by Cro Cop. Well most of us anyway, and that its no excuse to cancel the fight. Dont get me wrong Ive always liked Dana but I dont like him in this interview at all.
