Jackson camp fighters' latest performances! Nothing to say now Dana?!

I believe many of you guys know about Dana White's criticism towards Greg Jackson, his camp and their "safety first" politics.
If you don't know it:

"You'll see guys who are traditionally exciting fighters, but when they go to the Greg Jackson camp they become safety first fighters," - Dana White.

The most famous statement was after Okami - Marquardt, when he had a problem regarding Marquardt's corner men telling him he is winning the fight.
Agreed, that was wrong, because Marquardt was losing that fight.
But Marquardt is a veteran in MMA. I believe he can figure out when he is winning or losing a fight. Especially that one, when he didn't do pretty much anything.

Dana went too far imo, attacking Greg Jackson and his camp.
And Jackson responded to him, at the end of last year, with statistics, that proved his fighters won a lot of SOTn, KOTN and/or SOTN bonuses.

But, to make it short.
Here are some of the perormances, coming from Jackson camp fighters, after Dana made those claims:

- Georges St. Pierre dominated Josh Koscheck at UFC 124
- Clay Guida submitted Takanori Gomi at UFC 125
- Brian Stann TKO'd Chris Leben at UFC 125
- Melvin Guillard TKO'd Evan Dunham at UFC: Fight for the Troops
- Donald Cerrone submitted Paul Kelly at UFC 126
- Jon Jones submitted Ryan Bader at UFC 126
- Kyle Noke submitted Chris Camozzi at UFC 127

SO....Mr. White!!!
Would you like to say something now?!

Apart from GSP aren't they all fairly new additions?

Dana was probably crticising Rashad when he said that.

honestly most of those guys were finishers beforehand, only guida was an out of nowhere gameplan based finsh to me, the others just did what they always do in......more awesome fashion....i guess there are some benefits to Jacksons camp, but it could just be a hot streak of fighters.

I didn't think too many people took Dana's words seriously. Some of the stuff he says is relevant but I always thought most people thought this was coming from his BS side.

I don't think Dana's comments are that off base. Jackson fighters do the minimum required to win. Like Rashad just repeatedly taking somebody down without doing much damage because he knows it'll get him the points he needs to win. Jackson's fighters have a strategy to pick up the win with the least amount of effort but it makes for boring fights.

And while GSP dominated Koschek, he didn't finish. He just jabbed away for 5 rounds.

Blah blah blah. The Jackson camp is as dangerous as running around with scissors.

That comment is mostly based off his performance against Rampage, if you check when he actually said it, you see it was shortly after that PPV event.

All these guys sticking up for Dana are the same guys who quote Dana when arguing about which fighter will win this fight and so on.

Moral of the story of this thread: Stop listening to anything Dana White says, cuz he's just trying to take your money.

Lol, is this news? He's not running a charity, of course he's after our wallets, that's his primary job. You think the fighters aren't after our money either? Do any of them fight for free?
