Personal Changes in SF under the Zuffa umbrella?

There has to be some major shake ups, here are a few that come to mind.


Paul Daley, IMO his fight with Diaz has to be in major jeopardy and is at the least a must win for him if it happens. With Dana wanting nothing to do with him and the fact that he has said he may not want to fight for SF under UFC ownership I think he is heading out the door. With Segoku going dead and Dream on life support Daley should have been kissing ass not opening his mouth.

Fedor, Just because Dana says SF will be buisiness as usual does not mean Dana will still be big on co promotion especially when he has basically became the only show in town state side. With two losses in a roll expect there to be some renegotiating here with SF/UFC holding all the bargaining chips.

Josh Barnette, guy has had some nasty shit to say about Dana and the UFC even recently and has some licensing issues that make him less than ideal.

The announce booth. Dana has bad blood with both Mauro and Frank Shamrock, expect to see Miletech a main stay for SF cards.

Mike Kyle, this one is old and likely forgotten by most but Kyle went way beyond throwing a ref aside to continue throwing bombs at his opponent in a WEC boute.

Babalu, This one is old and will likely be a case of bygones being bygones but the choke may not be forgotten.

As far as I can tell, Zuffa isn't going to order SF to do anything different with Barnett or Daley. It doesn't make sense at the moment, but I think Dana is staying compeletely out of SF's business for the time being.

The fighters may not feel the same way considering they are lining Dana's pockets.
Recent posts from Daley on Facebook, etc

Quote:
"Business as usual, what if i dont wanna fight for DANA WHITE/ZUFFA?......Dana white bans me for life from the UFC, Then buys STRIKEFORCE, and thinks im still gonna be EASY and fight on one of the most anticipated fights of the year (vs Diaz)? Which will no doubt make ZUFFA/Dana White money.
Quote:
"Not sure what im gonna do right now, honestly... fight for the Strikeforce and be Strikeforce champ, put money in ZUFFA/Dana Whites pockets? Or fight here in the UK for BAMMA, who appreciate my brand, and have my loyal fans, family and media support me. For real."
Quote:
"I have a great deal at BAMMA(.com) and make just as much money, believe or not...as i do in the USA. They appreciate my services, and what i bring to the company. There is till alot of competition out there, NOT all the best fighters are with the UFC/STRIKEFORCE, just they get the most recognition."
What do you think Dana is gonna think of Daley's remorse? Daley better realize that Dana could buy Bamma for chump change just to spite him.

I can see Zuffa saying a big "**** you" to M-1 if M-1 tries all there crazy bullshit demands especially considering Fedor's gotten finished in back to back fights.

The commentating team should be thrown out completely all 3 of them suck.

Daley is a scumbag and i could care less if I ever see him fight again, I never liked that jerkoff.

I hope they axe Barnett, he's a dirty cheater and doesn't deserve to fight in the big leagues. You test positive 3 freaking times and you should be banned for life in whatever sport you compete in. If he wants to fight, go to Japan and juice up all you want.

Daley is an idiot. Especially if he goes forward with this plan. He'd screw Dana more by beating Diaz and everyone SF through at him.

I totally agree about getting rid of all their commentators. Bring back Bas Rutten or put Bonnar or Kenny in. Something about SF's production has to change because it has always been pretty half rate at best.

I litterally laughed out loud when I read this, because its so true. Now that SF is out of the way Dana could buy out any orginization that Daley goes to just to piss him off. Must be nice to have that kind of power.
