Well there you go, is he generally nice in real life and a SOB when it comes to business matters, or is he just putting on an act and is an SOB all around?

He's a promoter/businessman and he will do whatever he has to do to boost rating/sales/pre-fight hype, etc. He will morph into whatever he thinks will generate more attention and heighten the profile of the UFC.

For some reason he scares the sh*t out of me, like he would have no problem beating someone to death without changing his expression.

But then on the other hand I wonder if he is just putting on a show for the camera to sort of help his image.
His job is made easier by getting personal and taking care of his guys whether they be past, present or potential fighters.

I think he's genuine in his passion for his job and whether this is part of who he is personally or part of who he is as a professional doesn't matter to me.

I think the amount of swearing he does signifies what kind of business man he is. He knows what works regarding the organisation but when it comes to how he comes across, i don't think he really bothers too much about it.
