"This is the fight business not the friend business" still doesn't top my favorite "i'm in the fight business not the internet business".

For Dana to call him a [expletive] businessman is the pot calling the kettle black.
Dana never called the UFC a "team" or a "family". If he did, then you would be right. But Jackson specifically pushed the "we dont fight each other" mantra on his fighters for years. I saw an interview a fair while back where he said that's his policy whether you like it or not. So, he pushes this bullshit onto his fighters... until now. Until it suits him. No wonder Rashad is furious. I'm sure a few of his fighters are.

Rashad left Jackson's in 2010.

He trained with JBJ for a short time in 2010 & the 3 months prior to the Shogun fight.

Beats me why he thinks the thing about team mates not fighting one another should matter, when hes NOT part of the team.

Ya he was still part of the team in early 2011, I remember when it was Evans vs Shogun they were buddies.

I want to see how GSP's situation plays out. He is still consider part of Jackson's team and he has been doing most of his training at Tristar.

He should look into the mirror- this is crap.
Yeah, but it's not like he said it in a bad way, he even said there's nothing wrong with Greg, but he is a businessman, which is pretty much fact.

Couldn't agree more. Accept for the part about there not being anything wrong with Jackson.
