Say what you will about him, but Dana White gets things done. Without him, the UFC would've probably folded. Dana took that company, and made it really popular. He's an asshole, but it takes an asshole to get the job done sometimes. I respect Dana, and feel he gets hated on unfairly. Yea, he can be a real prick, but he has done so much for MMA in North America.

Thumbs up Do you wanna be a f@#kin fighter!!?

I always appreciated Dana's passion towards
his fighters and to the organization he runs.
When you have a guy that's willing to take
the big risks, you know he's always heading
in the right direction. He summed it up best
in TUF 3 when the fighter wanted to go back
to his girlfriend of 6 months, "I don't give a f#@k!"

If it wasn't for dana's hard work, the ufc wouldnt be what it is today, it probably wouldnt even exist and hopefully more money will be availbale for the lower tier fighters as the company continues to grow. All dana has to do now in my oppinion is strengthen the ranks of the ufc, especially the heavyweight division.

I think Dana has done AMAZING things for the UFC, it wouldn't be nearly as close to what it is now if it weren't for him. To be honest I don't even think American MMA would be where it is and where its heading without the UFC.

Nice article.

I agree that the pay scale's a little out of whack, but that'll fall into place soon enough.

What I'd like to see to continue to strengthen the UFC is:

1) A greater push to find, attract, and develop talent in the thinner weight classes

1a) A more structured approach to developing talent (maybe a minor league of sorts?)

2) A consolidation of the sport in North America (i.e. annex or crush rival leagues like Vince McMahon did)

3) Aggressive global expansion of the UFC into other markets.

Of course this is all easier said than done. If I had all the answers, I'd be doing it myself.

1. a finishing stroke; anything that effectually ends or settles
2. discharge or release from life.
3. a period of retirement or inactivity.
