His argument on cutting Fitch was the stupidest ******* thing I've ever heard. Just mind baffling. I like Dana A LOT as a promoter, but that was just stupid.

hes right that no one knows who they are. and yet its bigger than football lol.

hes right about trt.

is it a business or a sport dana? ufc makes bank and has people on shitty contracts in the first place. if you love the sport, then why the **** are you cutting top 15 fighters.

other sports dont relegate winners. team sports arent ****in individual sports. its a different dynamic. also dana cant act like fitch is on the downside of his career. this is bullshit. if hes on the down side then cut him when he is out of the elite rankings. not when he is rightfully amongst the top 15 in the world. where the hell is wandy then. and has dana never seen a bloody sport other than mma. so many teams and competitors dip in the rankings and then come back. hes lost 1 fight, won 1 fight, lost 1 and drew 1. thats not a bad record against a hall of famer, a 2 title contenders and the hottest prospect in the division.

dana is full of shit.

fitch would ****in kill diaz. and he is fighting for the title after losing to a shittier fighter than hendricks, who also just fought for the title.

he was 14-3-1 and living in arguably the top division in the sport today, under one of its greatest champs. he never won a title because he stayed out of loyalty. and i consider fedor a ****in hall of famer, you ****in sping.

jon fitch would legit beat the shit out of a few of the ufc hall of fame. we know that.

dana seems drunk or ill to be honest.

he dont hate fitch or his style so he cuts a top 15 guy because he felt he was falling in the rankings. cool. only he is still top 15 in the rankings and in prime age, so how about **** off.

how the **** is it a combat sport when you are shitting on its legitimacy.

best in the world ? 14-3-1.

lay on guys? like its easy to be a ****in 16 streak ww.

**** dana.

the funniest part of the video is when he goes full retard and actually forgets the lies the brothers were telling him to say.

dip shit.
First off, a large number of people like WMMA and flyweights, so drop the 'no one likes it' schtick, it's tiresome and inaccurate. Second off, quit pluralizing the word fighter when you say 'top 15 fighter.' there was only one top WW cut. Also, you take DW butthurt to a whole new level.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!

This is one of the best anti Dana White posts I've ever seen. Plus rep.

Never been a fan of this clown and never will be.

I think the decision to cut Fitch is the exclamation point on how the UFC is no longer a legitimate sporting competition, but rather an entertainment brand. For the past two years it's been slowly but steadily morphing more and more into the WWE.

When Sonnen/Jones was announced for TUF, that's when I cancelled my ESPN subscription and decided to illegally stream every event. I've been paying a subscription for the past five years, no more. Not to mention Dana is a supporter of SOPA (******* moron).

I'm not even a Fitch fan, in fact, I can't stand the guy, but I can respect his skills and legitimacy as a top ten WW fighter in this "sport". Any legitimate sport doesn't cut top ten talent unless there are EXTREME circumstances, which there don't really appear to be in this situation.

You're a ******* joke Dana.

the fact you cant read is no ones issue but your own.

they can ban me tonight, and itl be a poorer place in the morning. the only reason you even exist in the first place, is because you are that ****in sad, you needed to pay people to listen to you.



really. i have seen the evidence of that everywhere from ppvs to forums to word of mouth in the street. the ufc does hos and midgets. cool. here comes honda shooting her mouth off again.

when you cut a top ten fighter, you are in the process of cutting top ten fighters. thats how it works. english. learn it.

you crawl inside danas buttocks to a whole new level. im just telling the truth on the internet. he is right about one thing tho, you live inside a bubble, because in any other sport relegating a top 15 performer or team in a league of 75 is beyond ****in stupid and the total antithesis of sport or sports business.
Just so you know I gave you a neg. Why? well read your own posts, should tell you more.

You make no sense here, now crawl back into the hole they call sherdog, and troll away. Waste of space on here


Ps. Take Grapple with you. you guys are perfect for each other.

Cutting Fitch makes sense the guy was making huge money because he was the consus #2 WW, but at the same time he wasn't a guy many people paid to see. The UFC paid him big money because it kept him from going somewhere else and allowed them to keep a guy who could go elsewhere pick up some wins and add legitimacy to them. Say if Fitch went to Bellator after the GSP fight and got soundly beaten by Askren then GSP's #1 WW spot could be questioned. Now he has won only one of his last 4 fights and that risk is gone. This makes Fitch's value drastically drop from a business perspective. I highly doubt from Dana's comments that if Fitch had been willing to fight for less money that he wouldn't still have a place in the UFC. They release him he will go to a second tier promotion as a marquee guy and make better money than being a second tier fighter in the marquee organization. Once he has rebuilt his reputation and record he can come back with a repaired market value to the UFC. The UFC never made much money off Jon Fitch but Jon Fitch made money so the UFC could prevent somebody else from making a marketable name off Jon Fitch.

The UFC is a sport and its not about being WWE like its not fake its just that people are ignorant of the fact that first and foremost the UFC is a business whose goal is to make money.
