Dana is just pissed that UFC only has like the second (if even that) best heavy weight in the world.
Lol lesnar being 2nd best is a little optimistic..IMHO

He's listed as #2 on most of the rankings I've seen.

Like others have said already... if no one cared about Fedor why is it that Dana is CONSTANTLY making comments directed towards Fedor?

Part of me wants to say its THIS kind of attitude from Dana that is hurting the negotiations between the UFC and M-1/Fedor. Kind and humble people like Fedor typically despise the outlandish, brash, and over the top arrogance of guys like Dana White.

Personally, I like that Dana White isnt afraid to speak his mind, but far too often his "honesty" is only directed negatively towards opposing fighters/fight promotions.

The UFC is big enough and dominating enough in the MMA World that Dana hardly needs to address anything outside the UFC at all, and *IF* he does it at all, it should be short and sweet. All these comments he has made directed towards Affliction, Strikeforce, and Elite XC have only made me more apt to buy PPV's or head out to the bar to watch the other promotions.

In all, Dana White would probably do more damage to Strikeforce by simply not acknowledging them as a promotion altogether, rather than constantly ranting about how "they're [expletive], and no one gives a [expletive] about them!"

i guess he might be kind of right, even if he comes across as a douche. I mean realistically, most casual fans wouldn't have any clue who Fedor is, and that same calm, no bull attitude that makes Fedor so popular with the hardcore fans, can keep him from making any new ones, the guy does lack any charisma whatsoever.

People just don't have access to his old fights in Japan, and Fedor's not the type of guy to go around promoting himself all the time like some of the new MMA superstars, which does make giving him any kind of lucrative contract a risky move.

True, however it's interesting that Dana would say this right after millions of people saw Fedor fight on CBS.

is it just me or does anybody else notice these conflicting statements by dana?

"I am a big fan of MMA"
"I have always had MMA's best interests at heart"

etc?

Is it just me or should we have to substitute "UFC" for "MMA" in all of dana's statements?

If he truly is a fan of the sport, he would respect competition and what it has to offer.

If he truly has MMA's best interests at heart, he wouldn't be defacing literally every single mma promotion that dares to even look at the american audience, unles it's name is 'UFC'.

it's pathetic, and it conflicts me in that i respect dana for getting MMA to where it is, but now that it's here he seems to despise anything not from the UFC...

to draw a vague and controversial comparison, hitler was an amazing leader and completely got germany back on it's feet when it was suffering, but then once it got healthy again he decided to commit genocide and start invading shit because he hated any people who were different to his ideal standard.

(dont neg/flame me for the hitler reference, i know there were hundreds of other, bigger differences, it was just something that came to mind. please be objective.)

You make a good point regarding how he speaks of MMA. In truth all the advances he's made for MMA are directly there to help his own company. So it can be said that his motives behind supporting MMA growth are really just supporting UFC growth. That being said, it's thanks to him that other promotions can start up and create a market beyond the UFC.


It's not the first time someone has compared Dana White to Hitler, but I think it's safe to say that they've chosen fairly different paths in their "evil" ways. I would compare White to Bush in that he wants everyone to conform to the UFC or "democratic" standard. If you're not part of us, you're against us. White says he only tries to grow the sport but in essence he attacks everything outside his own company. Bush wanted other nations to act like a democracy, but created wars to get this done...

I like the differences in MMA across the world as I do with different societies. Cage vs. ring, different time limits, head stomps, soccer kicks, elbows... all these things gave soem nice variety to the brand of MMA fans could watch.
