It sounds really strange this turning down stuff. But because I am really appreciating the new rise of the Super Samoan, I also would like to see him crushing someone else before facing a hungry JDS.

Mark or his management team probably asked for more money to fight JDS, in Dana White's mind that's the same thing as turning down the fight.

"I said yes to the fight (with Junior dos Santos) but if that’s what Dana (White) said then that’s what he said."

the rest of the article is pretty good. i wont copy past the whole things but worth the read

Dana is such a lying tool. Somebody fire this egotistical, pathological liar before he ruins this sport.

And before I get another "Dana built this sport" ... no he didn't. The Feritta's billions and the inherent popularity of combat instinct in humanity built it, just like Boxing built itself. Dana just rode along with the money and has done everything stupid possible to ruin it lately, but the sport and the first mover's advantage for the UFC is just very resilient.

People were actually saying hunt was scared.... the level of intelligence of the world is down and level of douchebag is way up. I didn't believe dana about this and here we find out he is full of it, I thought nick did all his countdown and primetime things for next week when dana said he didn't and now dana is just saying nate needs to do them which has nothing to do with nick.

And just today at the press conference he said what a surprise nick isn't here and nick then said "are you shitting me" and we didn't hear another word from dana.
