Dana White talks a big talk but that's it. Remember when he was so confident Chucky boy would go to Japan and bring home the Pride MW Grand Prix belt? So confident in fact, he offered $250,000 of the UFC's own money to add to the purse. Man the look on his face when Rampage crushed Liddell was priceless. White doesn't like the way humble pie tastes, even if it is for free. He's not gonna bite.

The commentary was the best part, you could hear him getting progressively more pissed off as that fight went on.

Jebus tapdancing Christ. Stay on topic, please.

Dana is a businessman and promoter and as such, talks a lot of crap, like another poster in this thread so accurately stated.

What I don't understand is, why does Fedor get paid so much? Yes I realize he is completely overrated, claiming to be the best fighter in the history of ever, but he isn't well known in the US at all. Only hardcore US fans will know who he is, or the people who heard about his one fight with Rogers.

I dont really know if I believe the whole "brock was fighting at 60%" however on the subject of Fedor, honestly Dana is somewhat right the UFC offered him tons of money and wouldnt do the co promotion, hell I wouldnt give someone half my business for one fighter either, even for Fedor. And after they denied all that money now they are saying they will put on a Lesnar/Fedor fight for free??? Super lame dude these russians need to let Fedor join the UFC without the co promotion and let him fight the best competition in MMA. End of story..

I don't always dig Dana's delivery, but he's right. Millen's full of it.

But the lead of the article is questionable. I don't think Millen made very many "waves" with his statement.

The UFC had NOTHING TO OFFER FEDOR!!!!!!

Fedor, Strikeforce and M1 has already said that the UFC purse was allot lower than what people thought about and that STRIKEFORCE was able to Match UFC's amount.

Why should Fedor risk the health of his company (M1) by joining with these super arrogant American rednecks? Why cant Brock and the other upstarts chase Fedor and join Strikeforce? If all these arogant Americans want is popularity and fame then joining Strikeforce and fighting Fedor. Imagine having 16 million Russians suddenly knowing the new upstart named BROCK LESNAR?
