"Come see the pretty lady fight" is basically the idea here. Basically every female to gain sports stardom in the past 20 years has been good-looking and marketed as such(see: Anna Kournikova, Danica Patrick, Jenny Finch, the Williams sisters etc.). Dana is trying to do the same. If it works he makes money, if it doesn't he can just do away with WMMA.
You guys are giving Dana way too much credit. Rich or not, married men looking to cheat and have casual sex aren't exactly high on the top of women's desirability chart (except for hookers maybe). Not unless they get some sort of lucrative career opportunity in return.

Maybe you haven't heard of the kind of average looking actresses that supposedly get pressured for casting couch:

http://www.ivillage.com/gwyneth-palt...ies/1-a-289546

Personally I think both of these actresses are pretty below average looking, especially Rinna, and apparently bigwig hollywood producers have propositioned them.

Apparently it's fairly common in the entertainment industry, even with "hollywood legend" level directors and producers:

http://www.sheknows.com/entertainmen...ng-couch-creep

If this happens, I wouldn't be surprised if Dana actually takes up a proposition from Ronda's side, given his reputation for womanizing. Creating a division and a handful of fights which he can easily piggyback onto a regular card, and dissemble the division if it fails, is no big deal for him. Not compared to producers willing to hinge entire million dollar movies and TV shows on chancy lead actresses.

On the contrary, it's the audience who you think are more likely to think with their penises that have far more options. You really think the average young male is desperate enough to shell out $60 to watch a manly cornrowed Ronda armbar some chick in 1 min, when he can just flip the channel and watch Anna Kournikova prancing around for free? I don't, and I doubt that was Dana's line of thinking either. Whatever he is, he is not a stupid man.

Wow, the amount of conjecture and flat out rumour mongering in this thread is outstanding.

Ok... Dana's own mom accuses him of cheating, and other random people. His wife doesn't defend him or contradict this in any way. Heck, Dana and his wife are never seen in public together. He lives in Vegas, the casino and prostitution capital of the world, and is a typical high flying, partying exec.

Ronda is an attention hungry and ambitious woman who gives interviews all day about how she likes sex before fights, poses nude for ESPN.

Dana wears around T-Shirt with said nude picture and takes her as a date on red carpet events. As if that's not an inappropriate boss-employee relationship at all.

Dana does complete U-Turn on business stance from less than a year ago. And unlike his other U-Turns, this one has no real financial upside for him.

Obviously this is all completely ridiculous and unlikely, what was I thinking. You're totally right, the entertainment industry is absolutely sparkling. It's run by unicorns and pixies and my little ponies with big dewy eyes .

hahaha, wow. I dont know how you took "the entertainment industry is absolutely sparkling. It's run by unicorns and pixies and my little ponies with big dewy eyes" from what i said.

What I am saying is that 90% of the things people are accusing Dana of in this thread come from nothing other than their own minds and have ZERO evidence to back it up.

Im not saying that none of could be true but People are going on like they have a secret camera on Dana and know EVERYTHING that he does. I just find it funny is all

P.S - Men having affairs often wear Tshirts with a naked photo of their mistress on.

This is not a court of law where we're sending the guy to jail, we're just making opinions and strong circumstantial evidence is hard to ignore. Heck, testimony from a mother would even count as evidence in a court of law.

You're probably one of those people who thought Overeem was clean as a whistle up until the evidence came out right? Clearly, we aren't allowed to state the obvious here.

People wear nude T-Shirts or tattoos or whatever the heck they want of their mistresses when they don't give a damn and their wife has pretty much accepted her lot in life. Hefner did it all the time when he was married, obviously he was uh .. all business with the bunnies.

The other way around is true though, if you want to maintain a strictly professional relationship with your employees, one of the obvious things to do is not wear nudes of them.

I'd probably turn sex with Ronda down. She only knows one move and I don't want to end up wearing a johnny and getting a X-Ray.
