Dana is a megalomaniac. He can be really funny with his motivational speeches on TUF but he's a greedy Mofo. He tore apart Pride, he screws over fighters he plays favorites with his poster boys etc. he's a terrible businessman. he needs to stay behind the scenes like the fertitias. Dana is starting to remind me of Don King and sooner or later, like King, he's going to destroy the sport

i usually dont disagree with you

but wtf are you talking about

dana white didnt tear apart pride fc....pride fc destroyed itself.....they wouldnt have sold if they wherent in trouble...and i find it highly doubtful that white and the fertitas wouldnt keep the org running....if they could profit from it

playing favourites with posterboys is what every organization does.....forgive me mma gods.....but the hold shogun was given favourtism....as was fedor.....and i dont think its wrong to give your most popular fighters a chance to bring in and keep fans

how can you say hes a terrible business man....if it wasnt for him MMA in north american would be no where near where it is today

I am raging with Hetero love for Shamrock. I love a dude who isnt affraid to speak his mind.

We need more insiders such as fighters to stand up and give us a clue about whats really going on behind the scenes!

MV: Any chance you would fight Couture?
FS: Would love to have him kick my butt. I have trained with him many times and he is the real deal.
I've never heard Frank say that any fighter can beat him, he is too big of an egomaniac. This surprised me the most of the whole interview. I like Frank, he is a legend and he is the man.

Make sure your read up on the history of the sport.
So true. All the new fans who just watch TUF, should do this. It's not all about the UFC or Pride, it's about MMA.

I know what you mean! When I saw him give his post-fight interview after the Renzo Gracie fight, my first impression of the man was "Wow, What a Douche." But the man does speak the truth when it come to this particular subject and I respect him for it.

The UFC does sell the brand name more then they do the fighters. Tito Ortiz brought this up to (this was before he went back to the UFC) but how many T-Shirts of the fighters do you see the UFC selling. None! They sell a bunch of UFC logo shirts but no Tim Sylva, Randy Couture, or Chuck Liddell shirts.
