What Is Dana White's Next Move?

Dana White has a great marketing strategy going for the UFC His luanch of the TUF series was a brilliant move! He has transformed the MMA world in the short time he's been a player. In this business, promotional and television revenues command a master strategist to reap the rewards. Dana is this master strategist! Only question is; what will his next big move be?

If the UFC were to acquire Pride, then the next big move will be mixing in Pride fighters. Other than that, there isn't much in my mind they can do. They would have to get a lot more quality fighters to up the number of free live fights. My opinion is that they need more free fights. A lot of the people on here would complain that the free fights were too boring, but I think they need that. Get more fights in with the lesser known guys to get them more experience making some future champs in the process. I know you said what is Dana's next move, but it is not just Dana. The UFC makes the move. Dana is the front man.

The next big move? Probably some PRIDE FC .vs. UFC match ups like he said on Inside The UFC premier. I hope its true, but the man never keeps his word.

i think it's a matter of time. time to let the masses get used to the idea. perhaps he could begin educating officials and such about it. or begin to link the UFC with local dojos and martial arts centers, perhaps sposoring free UFC PPV's at the dojo.

i think it's a matter of public relations!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

lol ufc cant compete with pride, prides budget is way to big. They fill up the tokyo dome with their events and the floor of the tokyo dome as well. Pride is huge the world round UFC is more of a U.S. thing. The next thing dana white needs to do is scout more talent and find a way to get better fighters. Alot of the pride regulars that arent even champions would demolish ufc champions.

Whats the word on rampage is he still fighting in KOK or is he going to sighn with pride again or ufc.

And you get this because you know Dana White? OR, just because you ASSume you know? You have no clue about the man or what word he does or doesn't keep. You just come on here to jack up your post count and assume you know what these guys think or how they conduct business.

Do you know what you're saying or are you just spouting shit? Why would pride be looking to sell if they're so big. I'm sick and tired of F**K'S like you dissing the UFC. That organization has done more for the sport than any other. If you seriously think the UFC doesn't have talent, why do half the guys that can't get anywhere in the ufc go to pride? Or they get to old and go to pride. Pride's cool and all but I'm tired of people talking shit with out any sense or reasoning. If I were to say "Cro Cop sucks, he's the worst fighter ever" i would look like a F**KING idiot. But I would at least try to give some logical explanation behind my idiotic opinion, you have given none.

Dana will work through spike to get the UFC name out. The sport will grow and there will be more and more free fights until pay per view disapears. When the pay days increase better and better fighters will show up. MMA will become a dominant sport with UFC as the leader of the pack. (Pride is selling out and no one else has a chance in hell)
