There are many who don't like Dana for some of the things he says. I am NOT one of those people. I think he is a refreshing personality in a world where everyone is always worried about saying the right thing. He just says what he thinks and could care less if it offends anyone. I respect that more than others who talk out of both sides of their mouth depending on who is listening. Keep up the good work Dana!!

I 100% agree,

I thought it was funny how Dana just runs down Ken then just is like but he still may beat Kimbo Slice. Its funny cause its true.

First and foremost, Dana is a company man who tows the company line. The UFC allows him to buy million dollar homes and expensive cars. He will not say anything which puts that at stake. Therefore Dana says what he thinks ONLY if it puts the UFC in a good light over the competition. Realize that when you hear any comment he makes. IMO, that's the same thing as talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Remember this is the same guy who said Fedor sucks and isn't a top 5 HW. I repeat HE SAID FEDOR SUCKS. How stupid is that? Even before Fedor beat Tim, everyone with a brain knew that was company line BS. If Fedor has been under contract with the UFC, he never would have said that.

Mark my words, should EXC go under, Dana would sign Kimbo in a heartbeat. Yes, he'll sign a guy who he said sucks if he thinks that guy can draw and allow Dana to buy some more homes. He'll just say he's giving Kimbo a chance to prove himself in the best organization in the world. Great company-line BS answer don't you think?

You say he's a refreshing personality, but he reminds me of an an insecure kid in high school who talks shit about a girl just because she rejected him. In Fedor's case, he should have said from the start that he's a great fighter but they just couldn't come to a contract agreement. But instead he says he sucks, calls him a crazy Russian, etc.

the comments are priceless. people who think Kimbo would clean house in the UFC... man, good for a morning laugh.

We all know Kimbo is clownshoes... i hope Ken pulls it out from his wheelchair.

I think when he said Fedor sucks, which I'm not sure that he said it in those exact words. But even if he did, he most likely believed that there was way too much hype around Fedor. I mean around the time he made that comment it had been a long time since Fedor had beaten anyone of significance. He just didn't think a fighter who never fights anyone should be considered the best. After the way Fedor destroyed Sylvia Dana has changed his mind. Having said all that, I still like that he says whatever he wants whenever he feels like it whether it be for business or personal reasons. What do you want him to do, talk down his organization? Maybe you're jealous of Dana because he had the balls to invest in a failing business and turn it into a huge financial success!! He is living the American dream! Keep up the good work Dana!!!
