I'm surprised how many of you don't find Dan exciting. Myself I loved him since Pride and in the UFC he did good. His fight with Rampage was an exciting fight and he almost won if he had done better in the 5th round, and his fight with Palhares (spelling) was exciting to me.
Then there was the Bisping fight and I'm sure the fight with Nate would have been GREAT, pun intended. The only fight he had in the UFC that I thought kinda sucked was the one with Rich, not to much went on and I left a bit disappointed but other than that he's had fairly good fights!
Now on to Dana. He's an ass clown. Also you guys who say Dana did the right thing to get rid of him because he didn't want to pay him more than any other UFC fighter, you're just repeating what DANA said! You really think I believe a thing Dana says! Dana is a dick and an ego maniac and he'll say whatever he has to in order to make it appear that he's doing the right thing for his companies image, even if it means he has to smear one of his fighters.
I'll take Dans word over his, when what Dan said closely resembled what Frank Shamrock, Tito, and most importantly Randy Couture have been saying for years...."RESPECT US MOTHER*Fu*ker!"
So I am happy Dan is in StrikeForce now and he's got some good matchups. Even though I think he'll beat Shields it's still a good matchup and think his wrestling will quickly nullify Shields wrestling and ground work and his standup will simply crumple Shields in half.
He's got other match ups such as Cung Le, Scott Smith, Mousasi, Diaz, and also Fedor. I don't think he'll win against Fedor but it'll still be a fight I'd want to see if he wins all his other fights. He's got a snowballs chance of winning with that right hand but in hall honestly think Fedor will destroy him.
