Agreed. M-1 is sitting comfortably. The Fedor bit just gets them some leverage against the UFC.

Plus, MMA is an exciting and brash sport. Getting upset about his language but not being bothered by two guys trying to knock the poo outta each other... Seems like a priority thing to me...

I think both parties are full of it. To suggest Brock go to Russia and fight Fedor for free is just as stupid. No way these guys are going to fight for free. Just a lot of meaningless posturing.

"Dan Henderson, I promise he signed with SF 1000%"

"Brock Lesnar may never fight again"

"Tito will never fight in the UFC again"

"Anyone involved with the EA game will never fight in the UFC"

AND MY FAVORITE:

"I have a huge announcement to make this weekend that will blow your mind/change the sport/etc." Then it ends up being that Coleman resigned or that they might have an event in China someday or something. Ugh.
You have a problem with the UFC as a whole, it's that simple. Dana White played a huge part in that reality show, called The Ultimate Fighter, which potentially allowed Bonnar and Griffin to square off.

The UFC is based in the U.S., and still, the most dominant promotion.

Regards Danas persona... come on now! Every chairman/director in just about every popular sport are massive c**nts. In the UK, the football club chairman might talk polite and stuff, but they are greedy lying thieving twats. I would rather put it all out there and act like a c**nt if you are one : Dana White. Rather than this behind the scenes douchery, while in public portraying the image of a saint.

That was a joke guy. You got a crush on Dana or something? Dana's a girl name so it's only half gay.


Btw make no mistake, the UFC was failing under Dana's leadership until that fight, end of story. Being a tool and saying I just hate the UFC** might sway newcomers but it won't change the facts:

Quote:
In early 2001, the Ultimate Fighting Championship... was sold to casino magnates Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta... who put high school friend Dana White in charge.


In 2001, when the company was purchased, the belief was that once they got back on pay-per-view, the early success would be repeated. As it turned out, that wasn’t the case, and the company, by its own accounts, lost about $33 million from 2001-05 until the magic ingredient, “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, turned their fortunes around.

Surprise, with Dana White in charge the company lost $33 million dollars up until the Bonnar/Griffin fight. If that fight had sucked, the UFC could very potentially have gone under.


It'd be funny for DW to try and "call M-1's bluff" and end up giving SF and Fedor a massive amount of publicity after he crushes their #1 HW live and free.



**(yeah okay, the UFC basically changed my life, I go to three MMA gyms nearly fulltime because of the UFC, 95% of my favorite fighters are in the UFC, I watch every PPV event, I've attended two live events - and I live in NY so that aint easy)

It's entirely possible to be extremely nasty without a single four-letter word. I suppose Dana feels that this has come to be a signature of sorts for him.

I'm not saying that's terribly intelligent, just a possibility.

Fedor would beat Brock. Yes, I'm a Fedor nuthugger.

It's typical khoveraki to blame the UFC loses on Dana, but won't admit when Dana actually makes positive of the situation.

If it weren't for Dana White in helping create TUF, Griffin and Bonnar wouldn't have ever happened in the first place.

I'm not denying Griffin/Bonnar didn't have anything to do with UFC popularity, but to give them all the credit over Dana is completely ridiculous.

And bonnar and griffin both turned out to be terrible fighters. Looks like dana's scared his cash cow paper belt holding meat head would get destroyed by fedor.


They should just fight throw down a goold ole fashion street fight in an empty parking lot.

What? How is Dana White scared? Dana stated he was going to call them out on their bluff.
