The point isn't necessarily to boycott, it's to do their part in depriving the UFC of 1 buy. It's a bigger statement to 'steal' the card. Not to mention, I'm operating on the assumption that you don't know him, therefore you cannot conclusively say he will watch them.

I don't plan on boycotting, I just don't care for GSP/Diaz and Jones/Sonnen where as in the past I'd buy cards even if I didn't have a vested interest. I'll buy Silva/Weidman though because I like that fight.

Dana gets WAAAY too much flak, especially on Sherdog forums. Frankly, even when it is his fault, he's really doing the best with what he has available. The UFC can't do a single damn thing without pissing off half the fanbase, but I think it's already been established that MMA fans are some of the worst out there.

The heat he gets from fans isn't any different than what the commissioners of other sports leagues get. They are all just front men for the owners.
