Angry **** the UFC.. Zuffa and DANA WHITE.

Srry that im ranting about this but...

******* MOTHER*******!. Dana ******* White RUINED our beloved sport by killing PRIDE (the best damn fighting org on the PLANET), taking SOME of its fighters not enforcing new rules after PRIDE's death soccer kicks/headbutts/etc not signing the REAL fighters aka Gomi, Arona, Kang, Barnett, Randleman, Lil Nog, Aoki, etc. when i first read that PRIDE was bought in late march 07 i was pissed, sad, and basically in tears because i knew that would be the end of MMA'S goldenAge and that it would go downhill soon.

now its almost 2009 an all we get are reality show 'champions' who suck, are boring, and are hyped up to the LIMIT by the UFC hype machine.(yall know who l'm talking about: Forrest 'Decision' Griffon / Rashad 'LnP' '1 overhand right KO luck' Evans / and no chin fighters like Jardine&lesnar.

I miss 2003-2006 were the years of GREAT n LEGENDERY fighters like WAND/SHOGUN/GOMI/NOGUEIRA/CRO-COP/HENDO were rising up and demolishing anyone in their paths to become the best fighters in their weighclasses. losing PRIDE was the worse thing that could've ever happened to mma. look what happened last night to two of the best fighters that ever lived (along with Mirko Cro Cop) ******* ufc... I hope it gets bought by Mark Cuban or Affliction or ANYONE that gives a damn about mma still being around in the next couple of years...(And yes i personally blame the ufc rules and org for messing up Cro Cop's success that he was supposed to have in the ufc.)

RIP PRIDE!

I am sorry to hear that you do not like MMA the way it is now, but the blame you are placing is misdirected!

First and foremost, Zuffa/Dana did not kill PRIDE, PRIDE did that on their own. The company was loosing money hand over fist so Zuffa/Dana did the smart thing and bought the company on the cheap and kept some of their fighters and their entire library (which is of great value).

Next, again, you are blaming Zuffa/Dana for things they have no control over. The rules the UFC follows are not written by the UFC they are written by the state athletic commissions. Head butts, soccer kicks, kicks to a downed opponent ect. are not legal in ANY state. They may still be legal over in Japan (where Steroids are still legal) but if you want a fight sanctioned in the States, you have to follow the rules established here!

So, while I will not argue with you over your opinion of what type of MMA you like (I don’t like the Japanese version, but that is just an opinion), I will happily point out that you are placing blame for the wrong reasons.

The UFC does not set rules for ANY fight in the United States, they follow the unified rules! Educate yourself, it’s a good thing!

are you kidding me guy.. rampage was pride then he came over and became champion, same with silva, crocop came over and sucked, so did wandy, and a few others. Shogun decided to fight forrest griffin after injuring his leg then consuming half a wedding cake. Nog had a memorable comeback win then fought like an old geezer against mir.. its not dana whites fault most of these pride fighters are just becoming old/washed up. Its also not Dana's fault Fedor's manager wants control of the world before letting him sign. It is however Dana's fault for not going after more of the younger/up and coming Pride fighters there were. For instance, Mark Hunt should have been signed, Aoki, Gomi, etc. but he signed plenty of the stars who just happened to be past their prime. I dont like Dana White but this isnt on him.

Five Faves:
Rampage
Fedor
The Spider
The Super Samoan
The Axe Murderer

Look, I like putting as much blame on Dana as anyone else, but to blame fighters losing on him is a bit silly. Would have loved to have Gomi though.

there is SOOO much wrong with this post it makes my head spin.

first of all it IS DANA; fault for not signing Gomi/Arona/Hunt/Sergei/Aoki/etc because around the time PRIDE got bought those fighters were still on a contract with PRIDE and could've been bought to the UFC to fight and evantaully becoming champions in these american circuses you call 'Divisions'.

if 'isn't on dana' than why didn't he try to revive PRIDE and still make shows in the states or japan or ANYWHERE... Why let it die??? It makes no sence.

as a second thought i understend y dana didn't want to sign the rest of the pride fighters because the title holders would look like this now: hw: hunt/aleks lhw: arona/lil nog mw: kang / ww: aoki / lw: gomi.
