Hate on Dana all you want, but you have to recognize what he and his partners have done for the sport and us as fans
Dana has done plenty of harm as well. Sure he deserve credit for his part in growing the sport but so do fighters like Rampage. I'm at the point right now where I'm not sure if Dana is still productive for the sport. He certainly isn't the never makes a bad call God that many of the casual Joes bleive him to be. The man makes many, many questionable moves these days and whether or not he likes you is way too big of a factor in the sport.
The fighters pay is up but not as up as it should be. The fighters rights are getting better but still not what it should be. He played his part in raping and destroying a fantastic brand that was SF. His beef with Showtime and his ego ruined a terrific product that could have been so much more. He gets enough praise from far too many people. He needs to catch more shit IMO. Dude is far from perfect.

I disagree. Dana has earned the right to do whatever he wants when it comes to the UFC. Without him and the fertitas the vast majority of us wouldn't even know what MMA was.

I hate how people think that. Nothing against you personally obviously, you are great. But I can't stand how people take Dana's word as law and just assume what he is doing is the right thing. OK yeah he played a major part in getting the sport where it is today. That does not mean he has free rein to do whatever he sees fit. It drives me freaking nuts how people think every decision he makes is the right one. He makes the wrong call many, many times. His ego gets in the way far too often. He is a compulsive liar, he treats the fans like a heard of retarded sheep. He may have been the right man for the job to get the UFC to where it is, but I don't think he is the right man moving forward.

Quinton wants out of the Tex fight, and his contract in general and is trying to force it. I can't believe I used to be a fan. He's gone so downhill imo :/

Dana has done a lot of good. But I also think his eff this and eff that along with how he talks to fans does harm as well. I don't think this sport will ever reach the level of the other major sports as long as he is president of the company.

Oh, I don't think everything he does is right, far from it, in fact I think a lot of what he does is based on favouritism and his own personal whims. However, it's his company, and he has gotten it, and the sport to a point where if we as fans, or the fighters don't like it then tough, there are no other options on the same scale or quality of the UFC.

He has earned that right by putting his neck on the line to bring a sport like MMA to the mainstream and if I've got to put up with a few shit business decisions, or fighters undeserving of title shots got shots, then I can deal with that if it means I get to regularly see the sport we love.

I hate his guts and think he is the scum of the Earth personally. I could say alot crueler things about the man but I'm afraid I'd get banned lol
Like I said I think he has done as much good as he is gonna do for this sport. But the man is a piece of shit in so many ways. He wants everyone to buy the shit he says but he is the most hypocritical person I have ever seen in my life and it drives me into a rage. Liar, scumbag, douche. 3 most fitting words when it comes to Dana White.
