He looks like Dana White's timid brother.

lmao this just confirms what I always thought about Dana, that he's a wannabe tough guy gangster because he feels complexed by all these guys that could kick his ass. Inside he's just a geeky suburban white kid who happened to get lucky with buying a good idea at the right time.

Still, I wish he'd stayed who he was ... much nicer.

What does him being white have to do with anything?

And lucky? Hardly, the UFC and MMA has not seen the success it has through luck, it's due to him having vision and pushing the sport forward in all the right ways.

Wow, he has hair, and he's wearing a tie... I really like Dana, people rag on him, but he says what he feels and we owe him for how popular MMA has become.

That interview is almost 10 years ago. You can tell he was uncomfortable on camera and not used to talking into a microphone. Since then he has put in a huge amount of work and overcame a lot of adversity (whenever he gets up, shit happens) and has had a lot of success in his career. He is a success story.

10 years is a lot of time, enough to change very deep. He may have been a wannabe tough guy, but after 10 years of living the life... he probably became one.
