I trust what Dana says way more than what Chael says. Chael is literally just spewing hype ala WWE model, often making outlandish claims like being the champion when he isn't. Dana is more like dealing with your boss. They lie all the time but it's a half truth. Chael is just full of shit for entertainment value.
I'll never understand how Chael got so many fans. He has to be one of the most boring fighters out there. I'd honestly rather watch GSP grind out a win than Chael grind out a win. Guy is pure talk and we all know it. Then we thank him for it and ask for another.
