I'm talking post Fedor era. Igor is another great heavyweight, Fedor just sustained his wins longer after facing more known fighters.

You cannot fault Fedor for fighting in HIS time line so I think it is absurd that people call him overrated finally after all the years and then wait until he loses and say "I knew it all along." I am going to take what the fighters have said about him in the past. That being said, I think he should just retire.

Exactly. You can just see that ugly, cheesy grin Dana has, sitting behind closed doors laughing about finally getting the chance to sack Fedor after all those years Fedor wouldn't bow to Dana as some kind of king like his other rostered fighters do (Anderson Silva makes me sick with how great a fighter he is and how much he stil has to suck upto Dana).

This really annoys me that Zuffa can now do whatever they like and still rake in billions of dollars! And to think how many guys still defend them and their monopoly power! It is outright sickening and doesn't relate to any other sport (even NFL et al have seperate team owners).

K...I just had to share this video cuz it shows that Zuffa has full reigns now. They are the "empire."

Cutting Overeem plus all Golden Glory fighters with the exception of Sergei and now Fedor. Who would of thought...

The message is clear. Do their bidding or face exile.

Shame on the sport! They are making it just business. Even fighters started to make HUGE game plans for not to "LOOOSE" not to go out there and give the fans a SHOW!

In each UFC event. How many of the fights end with a Decision?????? In PRIDE I remember that they hardly went there. There was fights, KO, stombs and other interesting things. Now, we have to wait for JBJ or AS to see a fight, most of the rest not all of them just give us slam slam fights not STAND AND BANG!

Thats why:
1- Wanderli is a master in giving a show,
2- Fedor too,
3- The old Sho Gun,
4- Rampage,
5- JBJ,
6- Condit,
7- Henderson,
8- Loyoto
9- Cain,
10- Carpenter,
11- Brian Stan,
12- and for sure the Great Anderson Silva.

These are the fighters (at least the ones I can remember till now) that always gives us show. Most of the rest we hear:

And the Winner is by Unanimous Decision "Bugs Bunny" !!!

"Standing and banging" is not MMA. The sport has evolved past the pride days. If you want to see "Standing and banging" go watch K1 or a bunch of drunk idiots get in a bar fight.

It has very little to do with "not wanting to lose" and more to do with the skill level equaling out (on most fights). Not to mention I'm highly suspect of certain pride matchups made specifically so that one guy would get completely dominated.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I didn't mean that if they have to "stand", and for sure it has evolved and has more skills.

But, ....

MMA isn't "Hugging and Kissing" too! And that’s what most of the decisions come out from!

MMA is in a weird spot right now. Has Dana done a lot for the sport, yes. I think to really get it mainstream though, he may very well not be the guy for the task.

He holds grudges and has a crazy amount of ill regard towards fighters because he:

a) Cannot sign them
b) Doesn't like them Personally
c) Doesn't get his way

I hope I get to see Overeem vs. Fedor in Dream, that's my last fantasy match I need.

Women's MMA may very well be killed off because of White's ignorance. Put some damn money and incentive in and you'll get talent from the woodwork. For people to say they aren't excited to see Coenen, Cyborg, Carano, Shinashi, Kaufman, etc, etc. that's just ignorance.

It's a sad day when "Business is usual" and shit hits the fan. I'm sad to say it, but it really sucks to be an MMA fan right now. I haven't every felt this way about the sport since I started seriously watching, researching and following in 1993.

It isn't because of ignorance, it's because their aren't enough women to really take notice yet. I like watching womens' MMA but he does make a point about it not really being relevant yet because of depth. I'm finding myself defending Dana a little too much lately. What's wrong with me lol
