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.
