what does being an American have to do with anything?

or were you just being biased and uneducated believing in stereotypes and falsifications to believe that not all countries have people that are loudmouthed

I don't see why you should get negged for saying that. The truth is your comment is miles apart from Danas. Saying you don't like a certain sport is completely valid. Bashing a sport when you clearly don't know the first thing about it, and even making up some ridicolous "arguments" like the size of the net proves the players don't have any skill, is not. Being in the public eye, as a president of a major sports company like the UFC makes it even worse.

The goal-net comment really is one of the most laughable comments I have ever heard. Like the football fans was gonna go 'shit, he's got us there! There is nothing we can do now. Football is exposed once and for all!' I bet Lionel Messi is happy the goal is so big, eh? He would be rubbish otherwise!

How about this Dana, stop sleeping around on your wife, stop throwing your weight around like a power hungry bastard, and focus on growing this great sport. Then I can go back to respecting you instead of laughing behind your back.

He said focus on growing it. As in worry about your own shit, he didn't say Dana isn't doing his job.

Considering they just got legalized in a new state, are on FOX and doing more international shows, it sounds like he's pretty focused on just that.

You agree that it is the least talented sport in the world?

Anyone who actually thinks this is a moron. Here's why - if a sport is the most popular in the world that means it is more competitive and more difficult to be the best. That's just reality, the height of talent in football/soccer eclipses most sports because the talent pool is so large.

Secondly, Dana doesn't understand the sport at all. He sees it as a bunch of men kicking a ball around at a large goal, but how can he judge a sport that he doesn't even follow? The tactics, the athleticism, the skill.... what does he know about any of it? Very little.

For anyone who wants to get an idea of what a players talent is made up of, watch this:



If you don't want to watch it all, I recommend a few minutes from 21:30 where they cross balls into Ronaldo and switch the lights off to demonstrate his coordination and awareness.

All this specific stuff aside, if you strip this down to simple logic, any sport or activity where you are competing against a large number of other people, in football/soccer more so than any other sport, the performance demanded of you will naturally increase with each additional competitor. I'd say the talent required for a sport is dependent on the number of people who participate.

Please, anyone with more professionalism than Dana would have had all this and more accomplished 2 years ago. He's set back the sport with his opinionated loud mouth more than anyone.

Yeah, it's Dana's loud mouth, not fights that resemble a horror movie like Penn/Stevenson where the guy's bleeding all over the cage like some kind of slaughtered animal and it's not the Unions/Boxing promoters keeping it out of places like New York.

A lot of people, like Germany don't want MMA due to the violence, they could care less about Dana White, it's people getting their brains beat out on the ground and the cage that has held MMA back.
