When the UFC does nice things, it's nice, but they do some pretty outrageously awful things to fighters too and it's important to remember that as well.

But in the case of this story, good on them and I hope Dennis gets his kid back.
Tbh, you could make this assumption when any company or any person in the world does something like this.

Regardless though, I agree that it is good for them to help Hallman out.

That assumption wouldn't be based on anything but your own bias. Dana didn't even explain his situation.

Oh whatever, cynic. If I found out a drug addicted Dana White had personally kidnapped Dennis Hallman's kid then I probably wouldn't stop watching UFC and I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't either. They don't need to make people feel warm and fuzzy inside to get them to pay to watch fights, so I don't see why they'd bother.

Just the mentality that a company must have good publicity in mind when they do positive things.

Out of curiosity, what are some of the outrageously bad things the UFC have done on fighters? Apart from some harsh cuttings nothings springing to mind, but I'd bet there's no shortage of dirty dealings.

What good does that do them? This isn't a real media story unless someone with a big name reveals it and in this situation the only person that qualifies is Dana. A couple thousand hardcore MMA fans finding out doesn't do them any good. He didn't say anything about it because that isn't his decision to make.

good on the UFC for looking out for Hallman, thats a real messed up situation and I can empathise with his issues, hope Hallman gets back soo and gets his life in order. So sad when kids are the ones suffering too.

impressed with Dana for not broadcasting the issues and just helping out their guy.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is only the beginning of the UFC 151 cancellation fallout.

lol

Major news outlets use Twitter as a source these days, as do sports channels, etc...

Again, as I said above, good on the UFC for doing this, but also again, it's just good business.

See, sometimes doing the right thing, and a good business decision coincide.

But by all means continue acting like I said Dana ran over a baby with his Ferrari and didn't even stop.
